Why you need a car tracker in Newcastle
Newcastle is a great Northern city, home to 3 bustling universities, a thriving nightlife and it’s just a short drive to the Northumbrian countryside. It’s a great place to work and live! But unfortunately, like all major cities, it has its fair share of crime.
There were nearly 1,500 car thefts in Newcastle in 2022 alone. This becomes even more worrying with the RAC’s announcement that only ¼ of stolen vehicles are ever recovered. It’s not surprising that so many car owners are turning to car trackers to protect their cars.
A Thatcham approved car tracker provides the best chance of recovering a stolen vehicle. A 24-hour security centre monitors your vehicle’s location, using GPS or other tracking technology. This means that they can respond to theft immediately and contact police so they can intercept the vehicle.
The most effective way to protect your vehicleHow trackers work
Car trackers for insurance
Many drivers may be required to install a car tracker by their insurance. This is because insurers know car trackers provide the best chance of recovering a stolen vehicle - saving them from having to pay out. Car trackers bought for insurance purposes should always be Thatcham approved. Thatcham is an insurance industry body, who test new vehicle safety and security products. We stock a great range of Thatcham approved car trackers here at Trackerfit, which you can browse on our website.
Do you need a Cat 7 or Cat 5 car tracker in Newcastle?
There are 2 categories of Thatcham-approved car trackers: Cat 7 and Cat 5. We’d generally recommend a Cat 5 car tracker in Newcastle, due to higher incidence of crime. You can see the difference between the two below:
|Cat 7||Cat 5|
|Tracking system||A Thatcham-approved car tracker must have a location tracking system, GPS, VHF or otherwise.|
|24hr monitoring||A remote security centre will monitor your vehicle’s location at all times, so they can instantly react to theft.|
|Motions detection||The system will still alert if the vehicle is towed or rolled.|
|Driver identification device||The system will immediately alert to theft and inform the police if the vehicle is started without the device. This protects you against sophisticated keyless car thefts.|
