Can't help with electronics means, but if you have the ticket from the carpark, take it to admin, and they'll be able to identify which machine issued it. Should help narrow down search area.

Did they offer any other help? Which airport?
AA or RAC?

No AA RAC, I’ve contacted airport by email and just waiting now, don’t get back till tomorrow evening.
I have the MY DS app on my phone but had problems with the cars set up, my app says my car is at home address.
Thanks for tip about the key fob, may be a big help.

Hi

The "Location History" should be part of Google etc on your phone....nothing to do with the cars app

Glad you have your vehicle back - the manuals are 'War & Peace' at over 500 pages, so perhaps book another week off to read it.
