    Greetings,

    I got curious about this after a conversation about expensive scientific field equipment being stolen and decided to have a look at what was available. Most of it seem to be either 'managed solutions' with no prices given or fairly expensive bulky looking units for vehicles.

    I'm thinking look at all these cheap and tiny modules that are available - it would just be a matter of combining the right elements via a controller such as a gps + a gprs which you could page and have it reply with location data via text message. Worth looking into you think?

    Needs to be compact, ultra low power, and 100% controllable in terns of behaviour / features. A phone aint all those things ;)
