This will do it for you:

It came installed on my boat when I bought it but I didn't have much use for it so I didn't renew the subscription and removed the components. For a larger, more expensive boat that's kept in the water, it might be worth the cost.

Tommyr904, What is that you have on your 4 wheelers? Lo-jack is not available in Monroe county. But I have a question, What if a car (or boat) is stolen in Miami-Dade county and driven to Monroe county, does the unit stop transmitting?

I dont need to keep in touch with my boat for $2000 plus the antenna for 200. I just want the police to track it if some SOB steals it. Isnt there anything reasonably priced (500 +-) that can work? ;?

Now there's a huge market just waiting to be tapped by someone with a little smarts.

I have Seakey and have maintained my subscription. Not only can you set up a "GeoFence" that will alert you when the boat leaves the perimeter you also have high water alarm and low voltage alarm. You have a website to see or track your boat at any time. You can have your family watch where your boat is while your on a trip off shore. You can enable tracking from the boat's panel, call for concierge (they'll call your cell phone) to answer question like call seatow, where is fuel..etc. There is also an SOS button on it to function as yet ANOTHER epirb. Needless to say..I like the service.
