does anyone know of a tracking device to follow my car when I'm not in it ..,

Whenever I bring my car in for service I'm always worried when I leave it over night if anyone is driving it .... Are you aware of any device I can put in my car to track it 24/7 that I can track with my iPhone or computer when I give it to service or even when I leave it overnight in a parking garage in the city.

It looked like you can start and stop the service when you want and only pay while its active. I just skimmed, though, so

You could also normally leave it on your kid's car to make sure he's behaving.

Lol ... The way my son goes through brakes and tires something tells me that device would give me more stress tracking him then I already feel ...

I'm frustrated ... Between bmw, Audi and Porsche I am tired of wondering why they put so many miles on my cars when they are in for service

I get that you don't want them joyriding or pulling one over on you, but at the end of the day does it really matter? Or to put it another way, is there really anything you can and/or will do about it anyway? Besides, you'll sell the car off soon enough....

Edit:
Here you go, no monthly fees just some aa batteries.
