What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Michigan
These are general questions I have since debating the effectiveness of the SCRAM device for those that have an alcohol issue.
As for the unit itself with todays technology does a client HAVE to use a modem to transfer data to the SCRAM computers? I'm under the impression that it uses a modem to transfer the data via a phone line hardlined to a customers house, correct?
The reason I bring that up is in the debate I had, the other person said a SCRAM tether can utilize a cell phone now with todays technology, however nothing on-line I've read supports that. I did come across a link to the Washtenaw County Trial Court located here in Ann Arbor, Michigan that supports the landline modem - no mention of a cell phone.

Also, does a SCRAM tether have built-in GPS or does that require a separate device to be carried by the person on the device?
Would it be illegal by the tether company to also track said person on a SCRAM unit when GPS isn't part of the condition of a sentence?
Just a few issues that we debated that I cant find information on the 'web for.
