Vodafone GPS Trackers

Dear Customer,

As you may know, the Thatcham Stolen Vehicle Tracking accreditations are undergoing significant change.

From 1st January 2019, CAT6 and CAT5 will no longer exist and new accreditations, S5 and S7 will be the new standards going forward.

To follow these changes, here at Vodafone Automotive we have launched our new S5 VTS range of devices – S5 VTS / S5 VTS Plus / S5 VTS Advanced.

So that you’re fully up-to-date, here is a run-down of the changes and how our new look product line-up is going to look:

Key Points:

–          The remote inhibit “Engine Cut” that was a component of CAT5, is no longer mandatory. However, should an insurer insist on an engine inhibit, our ‘S5 VTS Plus’ includes Engine cut feature and greater level of protection.

–          Automatic Driver Recognition (ADR) tags 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 tag away from the keys.

Our existing Category 5 product is automatically compliant with S5


This is our standard product, fulfilling the new Thatcham S5 criteria and includes 2 x Automatic Driver Recognition tags. The S5 VTS incorporates all the key features and benefits listed below:

S5 VTS Plus

Our ‘Plus’ unit incorporates all of the standard S5 VTS features listed above, but also benefits from an Engine Inhibit function – which some insurers may still recommend:


Live Vehicle Location Including satellite Google maps viewing
Trip rapports See your latest and historical journeys including distance traveled as well as average and maximum speed
Geofence Set a Geofence zone and receive an in-app notification if vehicle enters or leaves that area
Speed Alert Set a specific speed limit and receive an in-app
notification if you exceed that limit
Multiple vehicles Up to 10 vehicles available in one account
Car Finder Route (Driving & Walking) Can’t remember where you parked? Car finder shows you the quickest way to get back to your vehicle
