Can I see if/when someone removes the adapter (to prevent being monitored by a nosy parent)?

I'd like to be able to monitor my son's driving (where he's going in my car, etc).  What prevents him from just unhooking the adapter?  It is possible to see when if/when he unhooks it?

Hi Adam. Unfortunately, there's no way for you to see /know this specifically. You'd see "Adapter Offline" in the app if the adapter were unplugged but that could appear for other reasons as well -- such as any time the adapter has lost its 3G connection (which can happen in underground parking garages or weak cellular coverage areas, etc.)

Hmmm.  Thanks for the reply, Amy.  Seems like this would be a good feature to add.  Would be great to create an alert using IFTTT when the adapter goes offline.

Yeah, you're not the only one interested in something like this. I'm not sure if this exists yet as an "Idea" post. If you haven't found one, feel free to create one with an explanation of what you're imagining it would do on xyz scenario(s). That way others can chime in and vote on it.

+1 on adding Adapter Tampering notification. :)
