Which tracker should I fit on a new RRS?

Hi guys,

I've noticed that insurance prices become a lot more reasonable if you fit a tracker to your RRS.

Can you guys recommend or point me towards the best brands and fitters for a good tracker?

Tracker cat5 plus is the best on the market.

Thanks. So you just pay one-off for those, no running costs?

No,,the tracker is £649 then you pay a subscription either 1,2,3 or 5 years.

I appreciate the benefits of a tracker as part of a layering system. However most are easily located and simply ripped out.

Preventative measures are far more sensible .

Sounds like the UK needs a change in the law dealing with criminals. How about chopping hands off when you are caught stealing.

I leave my cars unlocked most of the time at home, often with the keys in them just in case I have to move them during the day.

Having to pay money so that your stolen car can be found doesn't sound good. Its hard enough just to find the money to buy the car and then you have to spend money to keep it - seriously.

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

The standard factory fitted system on L494 is somewhat more sophisticated than a lot of people give LR credit for because it doesn’t have a locatable black box of tricks but is scattered throughout various systems within the car............... it deserves more than Cat5 but Thatcham are the experts. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for April delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 21 years and 11 LR products..... all because you won’t give me reassurance that should my SDv6 crankshaft break because of a design fault, not MY fault, but the engine builders fault - it will be replaced for free.

Being unfamiliar with insurance laws down under - I d still hazard a guess to say you wouldn’t be covered against theft if the car was unlocked with the keys in it......most insurance is based on the owner taking reasonable steps to prevent theft. 2017 Svr

The easiest way to prevent theft of cars is to go back to putting key in ignition,ok they can still steal them but it would make it harder for the thief’s.
I agree with Tim about the RRS only being cat6 when it should be cat5,,but then we wouldn’t have to buy another tracker so thatcham wouldn’t sell as many.

To be cat 5 you need an additional fob, separate to the key, that you have to carry around as well. I definitely wouldn't want that (and if I did, it would just end up on the same key ring as the car key or even left in the car). RRS MY17 SDV6 AB

I had the SmartTrack Protector Pro fitted to mine a few weeks ago. £245 and a couple of hours to fit. The subscription is £12 a month. Not too bad considering Confused

Mine is same tracker but without the fob,,I had the 5 on my previous RRS & it was good because without the fob if they get your keys within 5 minutes tracker are calling you to let you know the car has moved,,the only reason I’ve not got 5 on my now RRS is that it already had the 6 fitted so I just paid for 2 years subscription which worked out at half the price of having a 5 fitted.

I might be on my own here but I`ve always been of the mindset that if my car is stolen and ragged around by some toe rag, I wouldn`t want it back! Steve.
