3G HWIC - Security based on GPS coordinates question

Unanswered Question

We have successfully setup and configured a 3g hwic communicating over a cellular network.

Is there a way within the router to detect the longitude and latitude coordinates of the device and trigger an event?

Our goal is to shutdown the VPN tunnel to/from this device if it is moved. The device is in location where theft is a problem and we want to avoid someone stealing the device and having access to our internal network.

Any thoughts / suggestions?

Never heard of one other than either put an electrified fence around the machine or setting booby trap with a mercury switch.
