Insurance providers now insist that your car is fitted with a monitored stolen vehicle tracker, or VTS (Vehicle Tracking System). Tracker Teams advanced trackers provide 24/7 365 security and peace of mind that your vehicle is protected from theft.
Why do I need a car tracker?
You need a car tracker to aid in the identification, location and recovery of your vehicle. This could be a car tracker for business or for personal cars. But the basic function is the same. Car trackers UK allow you to find your vehicle if it’s lost or stolen. Your model of car might come with some security features like an alarm or remote locking. But that won’t prevent your car from joining the thousands of vehicles that are never recovered each year. Plus, many insurance companies now require a car tracker. That’s to protect them in case the vehicle is stolen. And they have strict requirements for the type of car tracker that’s insurance approved. You can shop our list of those approved car trackers here.
What is the best tracking device for a car?
The correct tracker for your vehicle largely depends on your needs and the insurance category of your car. We have trackers for category S5 and category S7. We can do the installation for you, anywhere in the UK. And you can be confident our installers are all Thatcham Approved. The very best car trackers feature Automatic Driver Recognition through a Driver ID tag which most people keep on their keyring. These vehicle trackers don’t wait for your car to be reported stolen. Just the attempt to move the car with this ID tag triggers the alarm. That makes ADR a very desirable feature for modern car trackers.
How do car trackers work?
Car tracking devices usually work just like the maps on your phone do. They connect to satellites in orbit to transmit and receive GPS coordinate information about where your car is. You can then log in and access this information or receive alerts if someone who is unauthorised tries to move your vehicle. Some advanced systems can use a cellular network or radio signals to broadcast location data if there’s an interruption in the GPS signal. They can tell you more than just where the car is, however. A car tracker can provide direction and speed information too.
How much does it cost to put a tracker in your car?
The most affordable car trackers we carry start at £149 including VAT and are fully installed by our Thatcham Approved tracker installers anywhere in the UK. If your car tracker comes with a real-time monitoring feature, it might need a monthly subscription, but these are usually nominal. These trackers can be installed with a magnetic or hard-wired connection. The type of connection depends on the tracker you select.
