When prospective thieves see my living room, I doubt they will bother to venture upstairs looking for the keys to my car.

you say that when my mates M3 got nicked in Ascot it turned up parked up in a village near reading, thieves dumped it to see if it had a tracker, by luck the wife of his boss spotted it.

Cops mentioned its a common thing, they nick the car and drive it to remote place but not for too long in case it has a tracker. They then hide and either watch the car see if cops show up or simply return on regular intervals to see if its still there,

So you never know

What is the point of telemetry like Connected Drive, if it can't be used to do something as simple as locate a stolen car..

They can tell me I'm driving in the wrong direction, or they can pinpoint my position if I hit the SOS button so I'm sure they have the capability, its whether they "choose" to use it.

well you say that there was as story in paper GM are putting a system in their cars as of this year and it was used for the first time the other day to kill power to a stolen car in order to stop a pursuit, I'm sure it would be possible but I'm sure theres some privacy law that prevents it in this country you never know, probably as it would make your insurance premium go down and now we would not want that
