Cars have been with us, at least in the form we recognise as such, since around 1885. German inventor Karl Benz built and patented the first motor-powered car, which was called the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. It’s not a name that rolls off the tongue, but we’ve been in love with the concept ever since.
In the 135 years since that first car rolled off the factory floor, vehicles of all shapes and sizes have become a normal part of our everyday lives. As they have become more sophisticated, more useful and more valuable, our love for cars, vans, trucks and even buses has grown exponentially.
Car Tracking Has Evolved
With the price of a modern-day vehicle rising all the time, the need to keep our engine-powered possessions safe and secure has also increased. There is always going to be some nefarious types wanting to take vehicles without the owner’s consent, but we can fight back with some clever technology.
Thankfully, car security has evolved to keep pace with the value we now place on our precious vehicles. Being able to track cars once stolen seemed like the stuff of science fiction, but it’s been around since the 1980s.
That said, car tracking didn’t really come into its own until the mid-1990s when the advent of the Global Positioning System, or GPS, as we often refer to it. In the early days, the price of installing a vehicle tracking device equated to about 10% of the cost of the car, but that’s no longer the case.

Regardless of the retail price or current financial value of your vehicle, it’s often priceless to the people for whom rely on them. Having one stolen can feel like a personal attack, so not only do car trackers give you peace of mind in terms of theft prevention, it’s also good practice to help to keep your insurance premiums low.

Like cars, the range of tracking devices goes from the very reasonable, like the Tracker Retrieve with its battery which lasts 5 years and anti-jamming technology, right up to the Meta Trak S5 Deadlock, that comes with remote immobilisation and is both insurance and a Thatcham-approved Category 5 & S5 tracker.
