My uncle has a car which is equipped with the so called "OnStar" system. It is a satellite phone. but if your car gets stolen the OnStar operator
can track your car down and find it for you. They can lock and unlock your car and if your car broke down they can see whats wrong. And all this with
that system, which is nothing more than a chip applied to the car. More info about the system here:
Here is whats wrong with it: What if the FBI or any other agencies use it for surveillance?
Here is what I found on a newspage:
FALMOUTH, N.S. — Police in Nova Scotia used satellite technology to track down a man suspected in the beating of two seniors at a motel that they
RCMP officers were called to the Avonside Motel in Falmouth Monday after a woman staggered across the road to a gas station and reported the incident.
As the two were being taken to hospital, police learned that their car was missing.
Officers contacted the dealership to find out whether the vehicle was equipped with On Star, a global positioning system that uses a microchip to
locate a car and allows users to find out exactly where they are.
Within minutes, operators at On Star offices in the United States were telling them that the car was on Highway 104 near Pictou.
When the RCMP tried to pull over the vehicle, it sped ahead. Police used a spike belt to end the chase.
A suspect, a Hants County man in his 20s, was arrested. Various criminal charges are possible, including theft and assault.
So what do you all think about this?
