    Default diy tracker !!

    does anyone on here know how to make there self a tracker for there car.......trying to find out as i was told how to do it last year( not off this site) but need to try and find the proper way. you use a SIM card and an old phone connected to the in car charger......register with pay as you go and if the car gets twocked call the plod and give them the phone's IMI number then they can track the signal. orange do the kiddy tracker system thing where you can look at the location of your kids phone on internet.
    some techy person might know the ins and outs of it.
    cheers Andy

    would a tracker reduce insurance costs if installed?

    if it's something like 'RAC TRACKSTAR' then yes, it pulls heaps of our quotes....

    if it's a homemade one, then it'll not reduce your insurance

    thing is tho mark.....you only activate your SIM if the car gets pinched....no line rental or subscription.

    oh, i'm not knocking your idea at all.... i think it's a great one....

    It's just that we already pay £100 a year for RAC, and now her car has it's new paintwork we decided that the extra £200 will actually drop her premium by about £150.. so it's really only costing us £50 for the satellite tracking.. add a 'PANIC' button and she'll be safer out at night in the car on her own as it calls the police straight off via the built-in phone/SIM unit...

    cheap peace of mind for the both of us..thats all..

    Nifty bit of kit mark for far less bucks than I thought. Ive seen systems where the Police can follow the car and and stop it remotely while keeping the scum locked inside.
