1. If your vehicle is stolen anywhere in the UK, a signal is sent, from the vehicle, to the Control Centre. New signals are sent every 20 seconds.
2. The in-vehicle unit provides the vehicle's exact location, speed and direction using GPS positioning. This technology does not rely on the stolen vehicle being near to an appropriately equipped police car, and therefore means tracking can commence quickly and effectively even if a police car is not immediately available.
3. The Control Centre, is manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and will immediately contact the Police in the area where the vehicle is located. And because the Control Centre will be receiving updated information every 20 seconds, the Police will be constantly updated on the vehicle's position.
If your vehicle is stolen in Europe, you must report the theft to the Control Centre in the UK, before the tracking function can be activated. The system then tracks your vehicle in exactly the same way as in the UK. Recovery of the vehicle will need to be arranged by the owner.
The Trackstar unit can be integrated with the installed security system
It also provides:
protection against illegal movement of the vehicle, via its unique motion sensor detector.
full battery back-up, which ensures that your vehicle is protected in the event of the battery being disconnected.
The system automatically arms when the ignition is switched off. This means if your vehicle is started or moved illegally, your in-vehicle unit will immediately alert the Control Centre and provide the exact location of the vehicle.
You will then be contacted - at one of your agreed contact numbers - to confirm that your vehicle has been stolen.
The Control Centre will then contact the Police and continually track your vehicle which will then be returned to you once your vehicle has been recovered.
