Hardly new news.  GM's OnStar was founded in 1995.

Cellular phones locate the caller and recipients Smartphone "navigation" systems locate users,

etc.

And finally in rotary dial days, phone companies turned over phone records, when requested---eg. Old School NSA haystack info. was already there decades ago

And even more finally, it doesn't matter much to have sophisticated national security intelligence capabilities, if the political leaders won't fight wars to win.

If you have a cell phone or a smart phone in your pocket it's too late, you are already on the grid. Ford or John Deere tractor, makes no difference.  Where I work your company badge with its electronic chip can track our location.   Someone leaves company property to go to a "supposed"  offsite meeting and ends of on a golf course - they can find out.

Just another reason to invest in restoring and upgrading an older auto.

Not to mention that they are better build quality, more reliable and easier to repair.

Of course, you also need to be able to read a map, memorize routes and be willing to not carry your cellphone, as Navy said.

I keep a cellphone in the car, along with charger - but only put the SIM card in if I need to make a call, say during a breakdown or an accident. No SIM card, no tracking.
