Take out the hassle by letting one of our highly trained technicians install your Trackstar CAT5 for you.
Please note : Additional fitting components are usually required subject to the make and model of your vehicle which we can quote you for prior to the installation.

The Trackstar CAT5 system utilises an advanced driver identification system as part of the
Thatcham Category 5 criteria. All systems are supplied with two tags as standard.
When the ignition is switched ON the system generates a coded message to a tag
and requests its unique code to be returned. This forms the basis of a ‘Challenge
and Response’ protocol and on receipt of a recognised tag code the system will
authorise the use of the vehicle, which is confirmed with a single ‘beep’.
NB: several audible ‘beeps’ indicates that the tag battery is reaching the end of its normal life cycle
and should be replaced, however the system would have been authorised as normal.
Should the Trackstar CAT5 system not receive the correct code no ‘beep’ will be
generated by the system and an alert will be sent to the control desk stating that the vehicle is moving illegally.
The system will automatically arm itself within one minute from when the ignition is turned off and no additional action is required by the user.
It is essential that the keys and tags are not kept together. The tag(s) should NOT be modified to be attached to a key ring with the ignition key, or left in the vehicle. In the event of a theft, there could be issues with any insurance claim should it be suspected that the keys and tags had been kept together or the tag left in the vehicle.
The system will automatically generate alarms:
1. Should the vehicle move outside of a pre-set geozone, without a recognised tag being presented, either by being driven, being towed or on a recovery vehicle.
2. Should the vehicle battery be disconnected, or the internal system battery back up reaches a critically low level.
Please notify the control desk:
1. Of any vehicle movement where the ignition will be in the OFF position
e.g. on a recovery vehicle or ferry.
2. If the vehicle is to be worked on where the battery may be disconnected.
As part of the Thatcham Category 5 criteria the system will perform a health check every 28 days.
Please note: The system has to be installed by a Thatcham Recognised Installer approved to fit Cat 5 tracking systems, and due to the time consuming complex nature of the installation we do NOT recomend a mobile fitting, so when you visit our business premises you can be safe in the knowledge your vehicle is in the hands of the professionals. If you are offered a mobile fitting elsewhere please ask why, as they may not have business premises, and do you really want your expensisve vehicle to be fitted with a high security tracker at the side of the road?
