Turn in the theft to the police. They check serial numbers from pawn shops. Go luck thought, they really don't care.

It not possible for a customer to track a stolen or lost Nintendo DS or DS lite.

It may be possible for nintendo itself to track a stolen unit via the item serial, in the case the new owner try to register the unit in their web site, or send the unit to repair, or via the mac address only in the case the new owner log into a nintendo wifi online internet game server.

Though personally never heard about nintendo doing that to none of their products and that may be because they don't care about units that were stolen or changed owner.

How do I track and get gps location on a cell phone for free when all I know is the number?

On an iPhone you have a Free App to download called Find iPhone.
Generally this is used for locating a lost or stolen iPhone, using another iPhone or Computer and with the ability to remotely play a sound to help locate the device or Delete all the Data on that iPhone remotely.
If you have 2 iPhones or more in a family and they share the same Apple ID Account that you use to purchase Apps (through iTunes) and to Manage & Backup your data & Apps. If both iPhones use the same Apple ID & Password then the "Find iPhone" App can be used to check and see the GPS position of the other iPhone on a map.
The tracking is not saveable as a file. Also can be used to log in and see the location of all devices in the family (on the same Apple Account).
There is also an App called Find Friends that allows you to track friends current location but it does require & request their permission when first used.
You could also get a free App and install it on the other persons iPhone and simply have it running in the background to remember all GPS location data during a period of time. e.g. a "Pedometer" to track a persons movements. You would require access to the iPhone at some point to recover that data by plugging in to a computer using iTunes to recover the location data. Running some GPS Apps in the background will noticeably reduce the battery as all GPS tracking devices do.
Figure out the details by installing the Pedometer or iTrack App on your own phone first.

My son's laptop was stolen...att has the ip address and even saw it was being used. my son has the serial number. My dautger has skyed with him. Would we be a ble to get his if address of of the skype...

The ip address changes when you connect to different networks (ie at home, at work, public wifi access, ect) and is not unique to the device.
now the serial number might be able to get you the "mac id" which is a unique identifier

if you want to see the IP address and have a gmail account you cna scroll to the bottom of the page to check activity and you will get the ip addresses that your mail account has been logged into from. .

Lost my nintendo ds lite

No way on the internet that I know about but if you file a police report with your local PD then they can take your information and if somebody trys to sell it to a pawn shop or something like that then at least it will be on a hot list and you would have a way of getting the DS back.

I think my nuvi was stolen

No, A GPS only has a receiver. It does not have a transmitter that can be used for locating. If you know your Nuvi's serial number and User ID number, you might want to report it to Garmin as well as your local Police. If the unit is ever turned into Garmin for repair, they will notify the authorities and you will get it back.

You can also post your stolen Nuvi here as well:
