Default Car Alarms - a gimmick?

Are car alarms a gimmick? I mean really, has anybody ever stopped somebody from stealing your car because you heard the alarm going off? Or has anybody stopped someone from stealing someone else's car because they heard the alarm go off?

My opinion, if a thief wants your car, say bye-bye car, at least until Lo-jack or whatever can find it again.

Thoughts? Maybe I'm just pissed off because of some stuff I've been dealing with Toyota about...

Some sort of GPS Tracking is the only way to get your car back these days. There are even iPhone and Android apps that let your track your car, that way you could tell the police right where to go. IMHO
