Is there a way we can watch our car's travel on our computer at home in case it is stolen? I'm sure it's possible for someone whith the know-how but I just wondered if it was possible without having to buy a tracking service like lojack etc. After all the car is essentially being tracked already just by having a gps device.

Having a GPS device doesn't mean the car is being tracked. GPS lets the GPS device determine its location based on signals from satellites. You'd have to have the GPS device have some way to send that location out such as via cell phone service.

I think I read something about using a cheap pay-as-you go cell phone registered with tracking services to do this though. Just need to make sure the phone is hidden in the car and kept charged and on.
