    Where was it?

    At least now you only have your cellphone to worry about. Maybe.

    I've got one pickup that used to be a municipal fleet vehicle that has one still installed.
    I want them to know where I'm at. It's only fair.

    don't most new vehicles have GPS/ black boxes in them nowadays? Certainly anything equipped with Onstar or the like. Jim

    Clint Eastwood had one of those in his truck,
    the drug Lords were watching him,
    and, didn't appreciate it when he stopped for a fling at a cheap motel..........

    That looks like it was for a location/mileage beacon only. You may want to keep that and use it yourself. If the car is worthy of theft, that is.

    I think that the EU is making it mandatory that every new vehicle must come with GPS/emergency connectivity sometime soon. It will automatically warn the authorities in case there's an accident and also there should be a panic button.
    If they do this, you will never know what else they use it for.
