The Toyota dealer has a similar device ( company was I think Atlantis) and quoted 15k for the same. Any advice?

There are GPS trackers from MayMyIndia but they are built for tracking commercial vehicles rather than for location stolen vehicles. You still might want to take a look if it tracking near-realtime position through GPRS is something you are willing to get.

An Autocop security system will sound the alarm if the vehicle has been unlocked without the key. If that is all you need, you can get the Autocop security fitted for roughly Rs.4,000.

As per my understanding, the GPS trackers provide location information which is accurate to the extent of +- 10 meters. The device can time-stamp the location information and provide a constant feed. A feed like this can be utilized to understand if the vehicle is stand-still or moving, how long the vehicle is in motion or taking a break, has the vehicle deviated from a pre-defined route, what is the speed of the vehicle etc etc etc. A fleet operator can use this information in n number of ways to derive intelligence. A personal user can use the same technology to locate his vehicle if stolen. How to use the technology is upto the individual user.

GSM based trackers utilize the cellphone tower network to locate a tracking device. As per my understanding, you will be able to understand in which tower's region is the vehicle located at any point of time. Some mobile towers cover an area of 4-5 KMs, so you might be looking at an area of 20-25 sq-kms. That's like looking for a needle in a haystack.

I would prefer GPS based tracking device over a GSM one any day.
