If you go for an advance or higher model, you can virtually stop your car at the middle of the road. But that is not advisable as it would give hints to the thieves and they might look for it. Else it will be left unnoticed and you may get your hands on your car in no time
. Although, my reason for installation of such device is something else.
I personally think, it should be a must feature and car companies should offer it by default by charging nominal charges for the hardware and installation. Later, individual can pay for the sim card like we do for our mobiles.
