If you’re in an abusive situation & have your own vehicle check the OBD port in your vehicle. You can Google your specific model to find where it might be. There are now a lot of devices out there that can be used to track a vehicle location (T-Mobile’s Sync Up Drive is one example) that plug into this port, which is generally on the driver side under the steering wheel. I was legit just told to position an offer of this device to customers by playing up the tracking capabilities for partners/kids & this does have legit uses but they can also be so easily used to invade privacy and further control people in abusive situations. Be careful and stay safe out there.

While the connected car and smart home ecosystems haven’t yet entered the mainstream, neither is in its infancy. Crossover between the two markets is evident and offers a unique opportunity for the ecosystem players.
