Vehicle GPS Tracking Devices

Category 5 vehicle GPS tracking devices are usually demanded by insurance companies for high value cars or vehicles that are difficult to replace. These vehicles are sought after by thieves as the possible gains are larger. Once a make and model of car has been given a Cat 5 allocation, that stays with the vehicle and is usually insisted by all insurers. For this reason, once your insurance company has asked for a Cat 5 there is no negotiation possible.

The system comes with two Driver Recognition System (DRS) proximity keys. One of these needs to be carried by the driver when the car is driven. If the vehicle is moved without one of these tags being present, then an alert is sent to the SmarTrack Control Centre and they will call the owner, to confirm the vehicle is safe.

SmarTrack Tracker Features

This SmarTrack tracker has a host of features including the ability to be transferred to new vehicles on upgrade. This can provide long-term cost savings by having the device reinstalled (SmarTrack Approved Installer only).

The annual subscription monitoring fee for the standard Cat S5 system is £159 per year, paid directly to SmarTrack. For an easy to manage solution this cost can be paid monthly by direct debit for £13.49 per vehicle, per month (minimum 12-month contract). Customers can also choose to pay for a 'duration' payment of £499. Duration means the subscription is not transferrable to a new vehicle or to a new registered keeper. Currently, the duration payment is cheaper than the future price of £699, however we are unsure when the future price will come into effect.

For the Cat S5 Plus: monthly direct debit is £16.99, annual fee £199, Duration £599 (Please check with SmarTrack for the latest monitoring prices and offers).
