Vehicle GPS trackers - any recommendations?

    Just bought a van. Want a tracker. Don't want to spend a fortune if I can help it, but most important is being able to track the vehicle should it be stolen. Plenty of devices on Amazon from around £40-100, plus annual tracking charges. Any good?

    Dual band, ie, not just cellular, which can be hidden by placing in container or underground car park.
    If you are going to do it - do it right or waste your pennies.

    spot on. Occasionally (once maybe twice a year) I get a call from the tracking co, when they lose the signal when I go to a deep underground carpark.

    There was a time when such devices would raise serious questions about privacy. Where are the pinkos now we need them ?

    True, you could just paint an ISIS flag on the roof of your car and MI5 will track it for free.

    Check out Automatrics on YouTube, I believe they start below £100.

    Not what you're after, but a guy I work with bought a cellular one for £10 for when his lad uses his car, seems to work fine, better than expected actually and gives accurate location information.

    Obviously I assume for insurance purposes, rather than idol curiosity, it needs to be an approved one fitted by the right people.
