Can gps be used to track you?

(1/2) > >>

TysonC:
Forgive me if the question is a bit out there, but I've wondered for a while if it is best to buy a vehicle devoid of any navigational aids as they actively track and show your position.

I know it's a bit far-fetched but I question if your vehicle gps will be used against you in a bug out scenario. Any thoughts?

“Mark”:
GPS units don't transmit any data.

However, a GPS-enabled transponder could be placed in your car -- and could broadcast your coordinates.

Roswell:
I think OnStar tracks you. I am pretty sure that is supposed to be one of the features. Like if it gets stolen you can track it down.

UnderTheRadar:
Lojack transmits.

New cars will start being tracked if they pass the mileage based carbon footprint tax.

Ugh.

Yes, it does. Or if you get in an accident, breakdown, etc., it knows where you are.
