Anyone recommend a good anti-theft vehicle tracking device?

Here’s a question which came to CloudMade support:

hi there, I had my motorcycle stolen recently which really upset me. Before getting another I would like to have some kind of tracking device fitted. The trackers I have seen to far cost about £360 for a bike. I wondered if there was a cheaper way of using GPS, mobile componets or some other way of keeping track of my machine?

I found this one on amazon for £149.00, but anyone ever used such a thing?

…the other key question of course: Can you do mapping with it?? Maybe you can get a good trace while a thief takes your bike to some unmapped areas :slight_smile:
