I do hope you find it .

That 'Tracker Trick' was mentioned on some forums last year.....Easily done and always worth checking your car before you get home.

As Andy says, it was talked about on here quite a bit, I'm sure a quick search will throw the threads up. Makes you extra wary of those people at shows who are crawling around under your car telling you they are restoring one and are just checking things for reference.

Some people on the forum were talking about using this sort of device to detect hidden trackers.

Did anyone buy one and do they work?

Only £12.99 that is a good find ,just check if anybody's had stuck one to our cars . as these trackers only need a pay as you go sim and the tracker is £10 from China .
