Can gps be used to track you?

<< < (2/2)

TexDaddy:
Mark is right.  If the car in an accident, OnStar will relay the position of the vehicle automatically.  If the car is reported stolen, the OnStar people can find it.  It can even be setup to transmit the location if the car moves when it isn't supposed too, such as while you are at work and the car is supposed to be in the parking lot.

Of course, all of this is a two edged sword.  Remember, the government now owns the company that provides this service.  That's why we call it Government Motors.

The state of Oregon is wanting to put GPS on all cars so they can tax you by the miles you drive.
