Time seems to fly whether you’re having fun or not. After a seemingly lightning quick year and with Christmas just a few short weeks away, thoughts turn to putting together a list of presents to get and hoping you find yourself on the big fellas nice list.
Whilst it can be a tricky time for some, if you find yourself with some money to burn and are wanting to splash out on something amazing for your family, friends or even yourself, what could you get for over £200? We’re glad you asked!
We previously posted a Christmas Gift Guide for those looking to spend less than £200, but this is for those with a little more money at their disposal.
We’ve tried to put together a list that would appeal to most people so, without further ado, let’s take a look at what we have at the £200 price point and over, including those for whom money is no object, but where vehicle security is still a top concern.
When it comes to car trackers, the two choices are often whether to get one rated as S7 or S5. These relate to Thatcham Research’s categorisation of security products; S5 being the higher of the two, but S7 shouldn’t be discounted so easily.
The Tracker Locate is the premier S7 tracker. Its key feature is that it combines VHF (Very High Frequency) with GPS and GSM technologies to offer a premium recovery system that is far more resilient to attacks than many similar and other more expensive products.
Even if thieves block the GPS and GSM signals, VHF will still be active to ensure your vehicle can be tracked and recovered quickly and easily.
So not only do you get an incredible tracker, you get peace of mind that your vehicle is much safer and more secure this festive period.
THINKWARE U1000 DASHCAM
If you’re looking beyond a vehicle tracker, or have one already, then how about a dashboard camera, or ‘dash-cam’, as they’re often referred to?
With some many potential hazards on the roads these days, being able to record what goes on could be vital in proving you weren’t at fault for any insurance claims, especially if those pesky reindeers aren’t watching where they’re going!
The U1000 is one of the latest products from Thinkware and is their flagship product, thanks to its market-leading 4k Ultra High-Definition front-facing camera and a 150 degree wide angle view.
Combine this incredible device with their optional 2K rear-facing camera and your sleigh ride is covered from every angle.
META TRAK S5 DEADLOCK PRO
Let’s finish with the most expensive tracker we sell, the S5 Deadlock Pro from Meta Trak. It might be expensive for some, but if you’re looking for a vehicle tracker that has everything you need, look no further!
The S5 Deadlock Pro really is the ultimate vehicle security solution, so has to be on our list and yours! If you’ve seen its little brother (or is it sister?) the S5 Deadlock, then this takes it to the Pro level and beyond.
As vehicles get more sophisticated and security technology advances, the thieves and the tools they use do too and that’s exactly where this tracker comes into play.
Building on the success of the Deadlock, this beast of a system has everything that has, with the addition of OBD (On-Board Diagnostic) port immobilisation, making it one of the most advanced vehicle security systems available anywhere.
As you would expect for such a highly spec’d tracker, it’s insurance-approved and easily meets Thatcham’s highest security categorisation. So good even Santa uses it (probably).

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner, or at least it is at the time of writing this!

THE GIFT OF GIVING (NOT TAKING)
Vehicle trackers, like dogs, are for life, not just for Christmas. Socks and chocolates are all well and good, but when you give a gift, you want the recipient to have value in it long after the tinsel has come down. That’s where vehicle trackers really come into their own.
No matter what vehicle they have, whether it’s a car, motorbike, motorhome or van, trackers can give them peace of mind that lasts a lot longer than even the most hard-wearing socks!
They all have the added bonus of keeping your vehicle safe and secure, so it’s a win-win! Another reason to spread more festive cheer!
THE PERFECT PRESENTS
With the economy dropping faster than needles on an unwatered Christmas tree, we’ve recognise that people are looking to make their money go even further this year.
We’ve checked the nice list and taken a look in our Infiniti sack to find three products that would make fantastic gifts to give loved ones this holiday season, and they’re all under £200! Starting with..
One of the latest products from the SmarTrack stable of trackers is their RECO S7 model. It’s a fantastic tracker for the money and is aimed squarely at the hot-hatch market, although it works just as well for anyone looking to protect their own sleigh. If you have a caravan, then it’s perfect for that too.
Giving this as a gift is fantastic as it comes with a one year monitoring subscription included, so your (or their) vehicle is fully protected the second our team installs it for you.
As you would expect, the RECO S7 comes with all the alerts and notifications you would expect, including battery disconnection and low battery warnings. It’s also fully transferable from one vehicle to another.
Another brilliant tracker for under £200 is the Monitor from leading security firm Tracker. Thanks to its military-grade patented UHF (Ultra High Frequency) technology you get protection from signal jammers, a feature often only found on much more expensive models.
The technology within the Monitor also gives you peace of mind that your vehicle can be quickly recovered, even if it’s stored in shipping containers, underground car parks or lock-ups.
Tracker have been manufacturing car security systems for over 25 years, so you can be assured that any product they put their name to is going to be high quality at a relatively low cost.
Not a tracker but just as useful for the petrol head in your life, especially with the dangerous road conditions that winter can bring (and the idiots you get all year round).
This fantastic dashboard camera (or dash cam as they’re known) from Thinkware sits against your windscreen and can record the road ahead, whether that’s the traffic, pedestrians or other road users. It records in full HD at 1080p, even when you’re parking, and comes with CMOS image sensors that give you a constant video recording that looks great, even at night.
It also comes with a 140-degree viewing angle to minimise blind spots. You can easily watch any incidents by downloading them to your computer using the intuitive software through its viewing interface.
