LoJack would be a dealer add-on.

Does not - unless - as DryHeat said, it was a dealer add-on at the time of purchase.

i never heard part of nissan's standard features included a tracking device i strongly believe there are no secret tracking devices planted in nissan's by nissan , unless its a navi system or low-jack .

there are other ways to track someone , like your cell phone , as long as its on , even if its not being used , the phone company has a record of every where that phone goes . toll records and toll booth photo's . red light camera's and speed camera's . public transportation camera's (for watching traffic) .

p.s. good luck !!!

QUESTION!? IS THERE A TINFOIL HAT IN THE STORAGE COMPARTMENT!??!


Actually.. I think GM's Onstar system uses a GPS, either that or triangulation for the built in cell system... BUT.. that is an optional item and doesn't have to be installed in the car. I've heard of a few guys hacking those Onstar mirrors up and using the built in GPS to power CarPCs and other GPS devices.
