Bit o' market research

We are thinking of selling one of our hairbrained products and would like to know if anyone out there would be interested in parting with around $800 for it. From this we will dive more into our pockets and get a bit more setup than usual.

What we can make is a device which you can put in your car and it can tell you where your car is. It is a "black box" with the electonics in it the same as a mobile phone and a GPS.

It can be but does not have to be hooked up to your existing car alarm (or cheap switch), if the switch or alarm is triggered it will SMS the cars location to your selected mobile number pretty much instantly.
You can ring the device and it will SMS back too.

Basicly, the device will SMS the Lat and Long of your cars position, really handy if your car has been stolen, even by the kids or wife (ahem "or husband").

Just a prototype at the moment and needs some more extras. If you are interested and would have the cash to take one off our hands the feedback would be most helpful.
