Hello everyone! When I take my parents' car there is that Masternaut gadget with GPS inside that tracks my movements. Is there any way to stop it without crashing it to pieces?

Masternaut is a special gadget created in United Kingdom to be used by many people, like your parents for example, to improve their driving behavior. The manufacturer also promises that usage of Masternaut will help them save up to one-fifth on the gas cost, effectively reducing the fuel consumption if the driver is using advice given by the Masternaut system.
It uses GPS to track your location and movement data, inertial and gyroscopic system to constantly detect acceleration and breaking, and microprocessor to process and record overall usage and revisions. This little black box gives driver almost real-time feedback, flashing and blinking lights when it detects bad driving behavior like breaking or accelerating too fast, making sharp turns and so on, which all results in the wasting of gas.
Masternaut black box is attached to the dashboard of the car and then it starts its work. It not only helps to monitor the performance of drivers in various companies and save fuel costs but also it can give parents the ability to watch the whereabouts of their kids using parents' car. I guess that is the reason why you have asked this question, and I can understand you. When I was your age I didn't want my parents to know all about my private life too.
So, here is what we have. You would not destroy this gadget because then you will have some problems with your parents, but you can stop it from watching your steps, blocking the GPS signal of Masternaut gadget without preventing it from doing its job completely. In such way I guess that both you and your parents will be satisfied because they still are able to see how you are driving their car.
