What do you call those things where satellites can track where you are?
They’re mainly put in vehicles for car theft

Nowadays, they're called GPS trackers. Back in the day, they used to be called LoJacks, LoJack being a company that invented a component by which a car's location could be tracked for theft prevention purposes, albeit at first by broadcasting a radio signal that the company LoJack could triangulate upon request using radio towers on Earth but then later by way of GPS and thus GPS satellites.
Incidentally, when your cellphone is tracked, it's not with satellites but with cellphone towers on Earth using the method that LoJack used -- by triangulating the cell phone's radio signal using three cellphone towers.

I believe they are called a Global Positioning Satellite(GPS) tracking unit.
