New tune idea - H & S

I have e-mailed H&S to see about the possibility of a tune (that could be switched to on the fly) that would keep the truck from being started. I worry about the safety of my truck especially when I am traveling and need to stay at a hotel. I really get worried when I am trailering my vette and have to leave it overnight. How cool would it be to park it for the night knowing it could not be started and driven away. Hopefully they will see this as useful and more importantly, something that can be done from a technical standpoint.

Im willing to bet, that when they dont get the truck, they will take something out of the truck. Then theres the blackmaxx sitting on the dash....doesnt it have to be plugged in at all times?

I've asked this before with no response, so I guess I will try again. What happens to the computer when the blackmaxx gets ripped out?

They can take the contents of the truck, in the meantime my alarm will be sounding. It is the truck itself and the trailer and contents I do not want to lose.

Don't know the answer for the removal of the blackmaxx. I think the program is uploaded so the truck should still run as normal.
