I had such an idea long ago,
when my car was stolen.
The insurance company got a report on day 3
that it had been recovered within 8 hours by
the Sanitation Department.
(NYC considers the empty chassis to be
a sanitation problem, not a police matter ;-)
My idea was, the device monitors GPS,
and ignition. If the car is moving but not on,
start making calls. And of course, 10 years
later, OM/FRunner/Tangogps offer the platform.
Call the Police from in front of your computer.
"I want to report a car being stolen...It's on 105t street..."
