Any One recommend a tracker

Recommended Posts

What does the panel think about this subject .

ive been looking today and there is so many to chose from.

I don't need anything really fancy ,I just want be able to find my car if it ever gets nicked.

any experiences would be greatly received . I recently realised the foz is worth more in parts and I would really like to keep hold of them .

I had a RAC Trackstar and I never had any issues with it, but it was the one already installed rather than a choice i made.

I know Subaru UK also fitted Metasat and Scorpion trackers to their cars, and I know there are a few users on here that have had those 😉

i had  had all the ones fitted to uk scoobs. The best ive had is scorpiontrack.

although hopfully if stolen they find the orginal OEM fitted unit first and not the new working one.

issue with trackers ll use GSM as coms back to base, so issue if no signal :whistle:

if you dont need a tracker get blackjax and steering wheel crook lock.

technical thingd easier to overcome rather than mechanical.

void thumbprint or optical as they can have knives.

In view of living in a very low crime rate area, usually garaged every night, decided to discontinue Scorpion track monitoring two years ago (agreed by insurer). Now have the back up of a Stoplock Elite steering wheel bar, plus Faraday pouches for the keyless fobs...

:thumbs:

95% of insurers will NOT give any discount if tracker is fitted and under 25% insist you have one.

Which shows the reliabity of them.

And not cheap to buy or run.

You can buy 1, 2, 3 or  lifetime Subs, but if sell the car its, non transferable. one owner and one car deal. lose it all.

Only a joy riding moron key jacker would get caught by tracking device that uses GSM a mobile Sim.

IMHO. Avoid ALL unless dirt cheap.

So basically trackers are easily blocked and not worth it ?

They can’t block GPS only mobile GSM  

It know it’s stolen it knows where it is but no signal  find the aerial find the unit  

A lad had his car stolen, One tracker system tried to charge £200 + for all the calls made to Delhi & premium porn lined using the SiM out of Unit.
