    The unit will locate a car if stolen. It does not need to disable the ignition system. It needs to locate the vehicle in a very close proximity where it is and source its' location if inside a garage/enclosed trailer. If the car's battery is disconnected, it has its own battery backup for at least a week or more if available. This old guy's mobile phone is not a smart phone that many services require for tracking: have desktops and laptop. However, if a "smart" is needed, so be it.

    Thank you for the help.

    The device you require is a GPS Tracker, this unit is a GPS (usually without a display) with a cellphone built-in, it requires a sim card and cell phone connectivity, one problem will be that GPSs don't work well in garages, they need to 'see' the sky.

    The power is probably best handled by connecting the tracker to a Power Bank and in turn charging the Power Bank from the car's battery, there will be a battery inside the tracker but it may not last a week.

    Trackers usually send their position to a web server that is contactable from both cell phones and a desktop / laptop with a web browser

    By the way, this website doesn't allow advertising of products so any tracker ads. that are placed here will be removed, if you need to find a tracker, I would suggest you search Ebay , Amazon etc. for 'GPS Tracker'
