Meta is the largest tracking system provider in the world and they have dominated the tracking world in Italy. Meta have always made solid vehicle security products even years ago when the company Smartrack first started they used Meta for all there installations. Meta have now decided to enter the UK market place with a tracker that will give you extreme quality but also the very best bang for buck. As with all tracking systems they are going to give a wide range of products depending on your requirements. First of all the Thatcham Cat 6 unit is a stolen vehicle recovery system which will offer superior protection with on board tilt and motion along with a back up battery in case the vehicles power is disconnected. These Thatcham Cat 6 units are designed for vehicles worth up to the value of £90.000.
If you own a prestige car over the value of £90.000 you will normally be requested by your insurer to fit a Thatcham Cat 5 product, this is the ultimate system in the stolen vehicle tracking world. Thatcham Cat 5 has a starter cut immobilisation loop which means the starter won’t engage once the tracking head office immobilise the vehicle. The plus side to this unit is the ADR cards which are used to identify the correct driver is driving the vehicle. If for example a thief gets in the vehicle and drives away without an ADR card being present this will trigger an alert meaning you will get a call from head office.
As with all modern tracking devices it will have on board jamming detection and excellent GPS ability giving exact vehicle positioning in the event your vehicle is stolen. Meta are also releasing a non Thatcham approved unit which is great for customers that wish to keep an eye on there car but don’t require a Thatcham approved unit.
