Always on tracking

Is the automatic pro able to have an always on connection to track the vehicle even if it's not turned on, similar to what the Zubie key does? This is a must have feature I'm sure many would like. Also, can it detect sudden movement of the vehicle? All this to deter car theft.

Thank you.

No, the Pro does not do this. It powers down when the ignition is turned off to preserve your car battery. We don't market the Pro as an anti-theft device, not least of which there's nothing preventing a thief from yanking it -- or any plug-in adapter -- out of the OBD port. If your ignition is turned on, however, you will receive a notification that your car is driving and you'll see its live location in the app as long as the adapter remains plugged in. The primary use-case that isn't covered is if your car is being towed.
