my little update to this -
I bought one of these:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-Realt...72.m2749.l2649
and installed it cunningly in my car.
I've also setup a copy of the traccar project (www.traccar.org) on a spare netbook on my broadband and I can continuously track where the car is (and where I am, via my mobile, but I hope I'll never need that bit).

The traccar projects got lots of cool features and seems a very cheap way of having some decent tracking & alerting. Pretty easy to set up if your interested, or I could open my server up privately to a few if you wanted to give it a go.

Thanks for sharing, looks good JB, great price too. I've just bought one.

When out n about the car is rarely out of sight, I go to pubs with a garden backing on to the car park .. At night, its tucked away in the garage with other cars parked in front of the garage doors, but I've been a little on edge thinking of upcoming events especially after hearing of that Jag stolen at Donnington.

Should arrive Friday

A modest weekly subscription should cover it.

Yeah, certainly need to pay for the sim. I'm paying £5 per month.
I looked at one subscription service and it was just running an installation of the traccar project.
So I'm not sure I'd be willing to pay much for that as a subscription.

I've been thinking of putting one my Mrs's handbag.. She'll never find it in there and she's been going out a lot lately since I got my Z..
