Tracking devices

Any one using tracking devices on their bike?
I've been told that the GPS devices are useless once your bike's in a garage/van (Phantom Tracker aprox 500+subscription).
MST bike gaurd looks more promising using GSM via mobile phones but the accuracy leaves a lot to be desired (a 'few hundred' metres to 1000 metres depending on location) but is better value 300 approx.
Do you have any experiences or recommendations?

Don't know about tracking devices on bikes, but my hand held GPS packs up when I take it in the house

Asset tracking uses GSM:

Whilst MST is better value but poor accuracy:

Cheeky they've got a Duke on their webpage as well

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with these?

I work in the security industry and there is 2 things about tracking devices you should know. 1. 80 % dont get recovered in spite of what they tell you (Call the police when you are being robbed and see if they come out in less than 4 hours. The police do not even look for them.). 2. Would you want your pride and joy back after its been trashed by a thief).

I was thinking about getting one of those that send a message to your mobile phone as soon as the bike is moved...I can park 30 seconds away from my office, but would be ****t1ng myself all day that the bike would not be there when I got out (a mate had a GSXR600 with 130 odd miles on it nicked from where I work, it was on a main shopping street and had an alarm and chain on - passers-by must have just ignored it being loaded onto a van with the alarm squarking)

Trackers sound good. In the near future could they be used for speeding offences as GPS is 99.9% accurate?
