    Aren't you afraid that your car can be broken into very easily let alone the obvious motivation to steal the monitors and what not since you drive the car to school?

    Well its secured by GPS tracking that calls my cell if the car is touched, broken into, battery d/c, moved without key in ignition, etc. Plus i park in a secured area where i can see my car from where i study

    You should definitely have it linked the local police as well. That'd be nice.

    What GPS tracking service are you using? How much does it cost? Where can it be purchased?

    Thanks for the info. How much did it cost? Did you install it or do they? Is the tracking via Internet real time? Did you insurance go down due to it, if so, how much? Tell me in which ways you have used it, if any. Thanks.

    my insurane didnt go down becuz i didnt tell insurance cuz if i do they'll inspect my car and discontinue my insurance because my vehicle will be deemed unsafe due to the mods. I paid about 800 for it with install ( a dealer has to install it, or else it wont activate/work) you can get it now for about 400. i paid about $100 a year

    I went to their site and now I'm dissapointed. You have to choose a damm plan and pay yearly depending on how many vehicles you want to arm. You algo get a number of connections to the vehicle depending on the plan you choose. Is there a service/device that you just purchase it and you're done with it? No service plan, yearly payments, etc?

    I really like the idea, but I would rather just pay for the device and not have to worry about yearly payments, just like LoJack, but with the additional functions.

    The Audiovox CarLink100 and SatLinkXYZ (xyz are some numbers but I don't remember them) is a 1 time buy, with lifetime activation.

    You can control your Audiovox alarm, remote starter, doors/windows/horn/lights, all from any phone. You dial a 1-800 number and input your ID# and Pin# and then you enter the command number. Any where in the world where satellite coverage is, it will work. Just like his GPS system, if it is in a parking garage, or tunnel, then obviously the link is broken and no good.

    But I believe you can get tracking from the CarLink. It is not realtime user trackable stuff, but you can call up Audiovox, and tell them your ID/Pin # and ask them to locate and disable your vehicle.

    The unit themselves are about $70-$80 on eBay and it only works with select Audiovox systems, which are seperate. Then you can either activate it yourself, or a dealer, but the dealer is $30 on top of that usually.

    Great little doo-hickey.
