Many BMW and Land Rover customers request this tracking device due to it being fully approved by the main dealers to be fitted without any warranty issues if the car has a fault and goes into the workshop. The RAC Trackstar is very well priced and does what it says on the tin. It is fully Thatcham Cat 6 approved and normally all major insurance companies will accept this if the vehicles cost is below £90.000 when brought new. The average recovery response time from Trackstar themselves is around 57 mins which is about average for most tracking companies. If your vehicle gets stolen you will need a crime reference number and once you obtain this from a police offer the call center will respond and communicate with police all over the UK to make sure your car comes back safe and sound.
Due to this device being Thatcham Cat 6 approved it does come with a subscription charge, currently set at £147.50 for one year or £399.99 for three years of vehicle ownership. Many companies are not offering lifetime subscription on many tracking devices now due to increased data network costs via 3G and 4G mobile network. The Trackstar features a motion sensor which will trigger if the car is lifted or towed the tracking center Trackstar will phone you on your first contact number or a member of your family to confirm if it is a real vehicle theft. The system also has it’s own power supply if the vehicles battery is tampered with or disconnected.
