    Its an exotic bit of kit used by private investigators looking for crimes - or more usually acts of infidelity - usually your partner will have paid to have it installed. They can record everything going on in your car and download it remotely.

    They can even smell what youve been up to from the bio-molecular filters that predict likely activity based on the smells found.











    OR I have no idea sorry. But if you crapped yourself - what have you been up to ??

    I'm guessing its the 'brain' from a aftermarket DVD/Sat Nav headunit by looking at their website.. A model number would be helpful thou!

    LOL!!! I wouldnt put it past her TBH!!

    any model number on it?

    It Did have something on it but it was really tucked away behind the standard wires, just waiting for me dinner then i might pop out to have another look

    Also i found i have the wiring for the CD Changer so might have to add that on! But no wiring for the Radio steering controls

    I was thinking something like that, it must have been a proper job as the wiring is mint properly soldered in, no traces of being installed at all
    But the weird bit of it is it has "spurs" off it to the windscreen (Poss for gps) and to the doors?

    Will go out after dinner to get a model number

    Well Had a proper look and found this http://james-gooby.fotopic.net/p56629398.html

    And after doing a little research its a vehicle tracking device complete with SIM card!! Fully powered up but the SIM is deactivated! See pic above.
    There is a "aerial" in the front air defusers for the windscreen might be the bloody rattle in the top of the dash!

    Now what do i do now.... Have a live power feed in both footwells..

    As soon as I read what was on it I was going to say tracker

    Either ignore it or get onto them and reactivate it and pay £100 a year subscription. Forget abot it having a live to it etc, it's not worth it
