Cat S7 Vehicle Tracking - UK

Cat S7 vehicle tracking are Insurance Approved trackers for the UK. These systems are the minimum Thatcham recognised car trackers, fitted covertly and monitored by a secure monitoring centre. Monitoring requires an ongoing subscription, paid directly to the monitoring company associated with your tracker fitted.

The cost of monitoring can vary slightly between vendors as some offer reduced rates for three or more years monitoring, or for offers like 'Duration' of ownership.

Systems also vary when it comes to included facilities with some giving geo-fence settings, limited self-tracking through an App, or full self-tracking for and small, extra yearly fee.

All of these systems are superb quality from established manufacturer, and we can guide you towards the best one for you, your car and your insurance requirements.

Category 7 Tracker

A Category 7 tracker is the entry level device suitable for cars, vans and motorhomes. They are Insurance compliant systems having gone through rigorous testing by Thatcham and we ensure these systems are expertly fitted.

Our best value system is the Cat S7 SmarTrack insurance tracker. This device comes with a free downloadable App with limited functionality, pay monthly subscription option and European cover. For customers requiring more options via a login account we recommend the SmarTrack Trident self-tracking upgrade.

Meta Trak S7 comes with the first year's subscription included and Scorpion Track has a 5-year low subscription deal. For customers wishing to keep it all Clifford we offer the Clifford Connect 6 tracker which is now a Cat S7 suitable for Insurance.

We also provide a SmarTrack S7 Caravan tracker with a 'must be present' key to avoid an alert being sent to the secure monitoring centre.

Is My Cat 6 Car Tracker Still Valid?

A cat 6 car tracker is still valid if an ongoing subscription is paid for monitoring. Thatcham UK reorganised classifications in 2019 making a Cat 6 into a Cat S7. They are therefore the same products but are now known by a different name.
