GPS tracker for Car

Anyone using\considering one? It seems like a good backup against theft ... a small android device hidden somewhere, recharged by the vehicle battery ... connected via 3g\GPRS ... traceable via android device manager(google). Minimal dedicated devices should have very little power requirements.

Definitely worth considering, but wouldn't one of those low end smart phones make this cheaper and simpler? Cheap ones are around 5K, have 3g\GPRS. GPS, power supply (cigar socket chargers), backup battery, ready made apps, enclosure etc. everything done.

I got GPS / GSM tracker from ali express for 2500. If you want that pm me.
