What is a Cat 5 Tracker
The main feature of Cat 5 that increases the chance of recovering a stolen vehicle is the use of a driver card or know as a ADR Tag.
This driver card arms and disarms the tracking system. The driver or ADR card is a small electronic device that transmits to the tracker.
If the card is not near the vehicle then the system arms. If the car is then stolen the tracking device sends out a silent alert to the operations centre.
The 24 hour operations centre then call the driver to confirm the theft.
Once the theft is confirmed Global telemetrics the monitoring station will liaise directly with the police to track and recover the vehicle.
A mandatory requirement of a cat 5 tracker is engine immobilisation. This stops the vehicle from being restarted. This command is only given when the police can see of the vehicle. Both the ADR card and immobilisation features will increase the chances of getting your car back with minimal damage.
Cat 5 trackers start at £599 fitted and the monthly direct debit is £16.99- PA £199 Duration of vehicle ownership £599

What happens if I change my car or sell it?

Its usually around £100 assuming both cars are side by side.
If we have to make two trips it would be £180
You can cancel the contract at any point just let the monitoring centre know this.
Am I tied into a long contract?
Our trackers are chosen as we want you back as a customer time and time again, we use the products we use as customers circumstances change so you don’t want to be involved in a two or three year contract.
At any point you can cancel if you are paying by direct debit just let the monitoring station know
If somebody disconnects the battery does that mean it doesn’t work?
The unit has a back up battery inbuilt so it can hold its own for a while and always tracks the last location
Can I track the car myself?
Yes you can, we give you the log in details and you can get the APP on your phone or the desktop version to see a location of your car at any point!
If my car gets stolen what happens?
Firstly the monitoring station will try and get hold of you to verify this, and then take the appropriate action informing the Police.
What happens if my battery is disconnected or goes flat?
You will get a call from the monitoring station advising you of this and to take action regarding the flat battery.
Will it flatten my battery if the car is left at the airport car park or at home whilst I am away on holiday?
Quick answer is NO the unit draws very little power so don’t worry!
