When you’ve worked hard, saved up and bought your dream car, whether it’s your first banger or a high-end, top of the range luxury vehicle, keeping it secure is always going to be top of your list.

If looking to buy a car tracker, like almost everything else in life, the range of what’s available start at the most simple systems going up to those that come with cutting edge features. You get what you pay for with most things in life and car trackers are no different.

We understand, especially in the current economic climate, that there’s not always enough money to go around. That said, if you’re making the most of home-made or cheap alternatives to securing your car, like trying to use an Apple AirTag as a tracker (seriously, don’t do that!), there are some real benefits and real reasons why you would invest in a high quality or premium car tracker. Let’s take a look at some of them.

1.Protect Your Investment

Of course a higher-end car tracker is always going to be more expensive than their cheaper alternatives, but it should be.

If you’ve got a top of the range car, motorbike, motorhome or even truck to protect, you want to be sure that it’s as secure as possible to protect not only your investment in the vehicle itself, but the tracker that safeguards it.

It’s always going to be worth spending a little more in a system that’s worthy of protecting what’s important in your life.

2. Extend The Lifetime of Your Vehicle

You might not think a premium car tracker can help increase the lifespan of your car, but they really can. Whilst the focus is often placed upon the security and recovery of your vehicle, trackers can also help you monitor how your vehicle is being driven on a day-to-day basis, whether that’s you or someone you allow.

Thanks to the tracking of journey history which includes speeds, direction and location, you can see how the car is being driven, and even scored accordingly, to make sure it’s being used responsibly and any maintenance is kept to a minimum.

3. Enhanced Functionality

When looking at trackers and their differentiators, it’s easy to get blinded by similar sounding jargon and seemingly interchangeable features, but high-end trackers really do offer you enhanced functionality not found in less expensive models.

Features like remote immobilisation, blocking alerts and Driver ID tags are only found in the more premium devices. This is also true of the satellite networks available to more accurately pinpoint your location. You will only find connection to MESH and VHF (Very High Frequency) on higher quality systems.

When it comes to premium trackers, the level of security you can achieve and the level of protection the vehicle receives is far higher than the base models, but that’s not to say cheaper systems aren’t worth owning. They absolutely are, but as we said earlier, you get what you pay for.

Everything from remote immobilisation to exclusive tracking abilities only accessible by law enforcement. When you drive something that’s unattainable by most people, some of those are going to want to take it from you and that’s when you need the extra level of security.
