Hi guys,

I've got to get a tracker fitted to my car for insurance purposes.

Looking for cost friendly cat 5 or 6 ones, any recommendations? The only thing not covered by the insurers if I don't have a tracker is theft away from home so, as the car is hardly used and when it is it's parked in safe places, it's pretty unlikely this will happen so I don't want to spend more than I have to but want something half decent at the same time.

All suggestions / recommendations appreciated.

Cheers

I was recommended - and chose - a Metatrak system.

I can't say it's necessarily cheap, but it's very good and I like the phone app.

Self-fit, runs off a rechargeable internal battery for 2-3 years. No wiring means it can be hidden in places that are non-standard & harder to locate / find.

If the worst happens, Automatrics (the company behind the product) are very proactive in getting out & physically locating the car. Their YouTube channel illustrates the lengths they go to:

Nice people too, you don't speak to a call centre!

I had a new Defender 90 (apparently prone to theft) and I used a company called Skytrackgps

I thought they were quite good,
