GPS Trackers from Vodafone
As you may know, the Thatcham Stolen Vehicle Tracking accreditations have undergone significant change.
From 01 January 2019, CAT6 and CAT5 no longer exist and new accreditations, S5 and S7 will be the new standards going forward.
To follow these changes, we Vodafone launched new range of devices – Vodafone Automotive Protect & Connect S5, S5 Plus, S5 Advanced* and S7.
So that you’re fully up-to-date, here is a run-down of the changes and how our new look product line-up looks:
The remote inhibit “Engine Cut” that was a component of CAT5 is no longer mandatory. However, should an insurer insist on an engine inhibit, this feature can be added to the ‘S5 Plus’ to provide customers with a greater level of protection.
Thatcham Recognised Installer certifications are not a requirement under Category S5.
Automatic Driver Recognition (ADR) cards can now be attached to the vehicles keys – although that’s at the discretion of the driver and for extra security, we’d recommend keeping the card away from the keys.
Vodafone existing Category 5 product is automatically compliant with Category S5.
Moving into the new S7 Thatcham accreditation, Vodafone S7 retains all the features of the Protect & Connect 6, offering a market-leading monitored tracking device complete with My Connected Car app.
Always check that the Protect & Connect S7 meets your Insurer's specification, prior to installation.
If you would like any further information on changes to the Thatcham Stolen Vehicle Tracking accreditations – or to request more information on our product range – please do not hesitate to contact us.
If your car is stolen: If your car is stolen with your ADR card being present, an alert will be sent to Vodafone Automotive's Secure Operating Centre. An advisor will then attempt to contact you on the number you will have supplied at the time of registration.
