Car tracker uk

Post by zeezu541 » Sun Aug 12, 2018 11:26 am

Does anybody know a decent car tracking company that I can use to live track my car and remotely disable it from an app, it would be good if i could check speed and all that good stuff too. It's a car that I give on hire quite frequently so as much info would be great thanks.
Affordable price please lol

Hi. I started a tread a while back on this and in the end decided to go with the Vodafone offering (ex cobra). Was reasonably priced and nice app. Can’t remember the pricing but you can find them online easily.
Current:
- Audi B8 RS4 - Panther Black
- VW High Up! TSI - Red with Black Roof
Previous:
- BMW R56 Mini JCW - Black with Red Roof
- Peugeot 306 1.6 GLX - British Racing Green
- Ford Fiesta 1.1 Popular Plus - Sky Blue

I didn't think you were allowed to remotely disable cars in the UK. The cat 5 trackers have a facility for the monitoring centre to be able to shut the car down with permission from the Police.

Makes sense. If you disable the car and subsequently there’s loss of life or injury you’d be liable.

It only works when the cars switched off, so it can't be switched back on until i type in the password

You won't get a chance to use it anyway, a thief will be carrying one of these: http://www.volumerate.com/product/55337 ... gJHB_D_BwE which renders any GPS tracker completely useless.
