A CAT 5 tracker also known as an S5 tracker is characterised by the fact that you will be required to carry some form of driver identification this is usually in the form of an ID tag most trackers that require an ID will come with two ID tags already however, any additional ID tags may incur additional charges. A CAT 5 tracker is at the top end of trackers and will therefore receive a high-level response from authorities and also a faster more successful retrieval of your vehicle.

A CAT 6 tracker also known as an S7 tracker is a mid-range tracker that has many of the same characteristics as a CAT 5 tracker but does not have a form of driver identification which is what sets it apart from a CAT 5 tracker. Although a CAT 6 tracker will receive a low-level response and can take longer to locate, the retrieval rate is still very high and can almost certainly guarantee the retrieval of your vehicle.

Both CAT 5 and CAT 6 trackers are Thatcham approved therefore are recognised by most insurers.

*Regardless of which tracker you choose whether it be a CAT 5 or a CAT 6 just know that your car is protected and monitored 24hrs a day so you can rest easy!

*Double check with your insurance company if the tracker complies with their policy as rules and procedures may vary depending on your insurance company.
