    There are plenty of 4g OBDII trackers out there, but with the MS not having an OBDII it's useless. There is also the flaw of mobile connectivity being able to be turned off (unless pin to drive enabled). Anyone found viable options for this? I have an onboard security/traffic camera in addition to TeslaCam but can't view it until it's back in my possession. I downloaded a 3rd party app, but without continuously running the app the cars data (location cookie trail, speed, acceleration, kwh/mi, etc.) is not logged unless active.

    The MS does have an ODBII port but only for 12-volt always on power. I use it to power my dashcam.

    And although I don't have 2018.44 yet I believe others have said it can prompt for your password to disable mobile connectivity.

    And FWIW I use TeslaFi and Dashboard to do realtime location history/tracking.
