    Doubt it and even if it could i doubt the police would do more than take the serial number.

    most are simple receivers that just listen for satellite signals to navigate. some newer versions have live services that use a phone signal for traffic etc. with those you can log into the website and deactivate services, but will still work as a dumb satnav

    some models technically yes if they have a sim card but in practice the police dont have the time or resources, so no
