eTrak ETC-100 GPS tracker

The ETC-100 GPS tracker ($130) is designed to keep tabs on your kids, but it's just as good at keeping track of your stuff. Stash the device in your luggage or saddlebag, or in anything else you don't want stolen (or are prone to misplacing), and it will email you location information when it goes AWOL.
