SmarTrack RECO S7

We know what it’s like. Christmas and the New Year is a distant memory but here we are. It might feel like the 76th of January, money is tight, but you still need to keep everything moving along.

With the rise of car crime across the UK, it’s easy to think it won’t happen to you, but no one is safe so it pays to be secure, even when the purse strings are tightening.

With the economic downturn showing no sign of an uptick, we wanted to put together a list of the best cheap car trackers and security systems available.

As with any cross-section of products you can buy, they’ll range from the ‘cheap and cheerful’ at one end of the scale, to the ‘Rolls Royce’ premium brand at the other. Car trackers are no different, but ‘cheap’ doesn’t have to mean an empty box with no features, there are some amazing products you can get from us without breaking the bank, so let’s take a look at some of them.

SmarTrack Reco S7

The Reco S7 from SmarTrack is our most affordable tracker. It’s one of the latest products from SmarTrack aimed at the ‘hot hatch’ market or those popular cars that are often stolen for parts or by opportunities thieves just looking for a night of madness.

Whilst its DNA might be geared towards those pocket rockets, because it’s so cost-effective, it also works incredibly well protecting caravans and is approved by many insurers, saving you money on your premium.

Don’t think that at this price point, you’re not getting a tracker that meets the high bar set by the industry-leading security team at Thatcham.

Not only is it Thatcham-approved, but it’s also connected to the Global Telemetrics Control Centre 24/7 giving you complete peace of mind.

You also get warnings for battery disconnection and low battery and it also comes with its own backup battery should the device be disconnected from the main car’s battery. All of these are managed by its dedicated smartphone app. It’s hard to get a better tracker for this price!

ScorpionTrack S7 ALS

For the same price as the SmarTrack system above, you can also get the S7 ALS systems from ScorpionTrack, a well-established vehicle security company.

This tracker is not only a fantastic stand-alone system for your car, but it also works brilliantly as a cost-effective fleet-tracking solution with a host of advanced features that you often only get on more expensive systems.

Rated to S7 by industry-leading Thatcham Research, this tracker comes with a free smartphone app giving you access to all the notifications and alerts, including geofence alerts, journey history, low battery and tow-away and tamper alerts, right in the palm of your hand.

Not only that but because it uses a combination of GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and GSM technologies, location tracking is much more accurate and resistant to interference.

Teletrac Trackstar S7

Whilst this tracker might be the most expensive of the three listed here, it still comes in at under £200! Incredible value for a tracker that’s approved by heavy-hitting manufacturers like BMW, Range Rover, Land Rover and Jaguar.

The Trackstar S7 from Teletrac, formerly known as Trafficmaster, gives you global coverage and, thanks to its Trackstar smartphone app, gives you anti-tamper alerts, motion alerts and battery disconnect alerts. It’s also fully transferable to another vehicle.

The other great thing about this tracker is that, at the time of writing, we are offering an extra 6 months FREE subscription when you purchase a 1-year subscription, and an extra 12 months free when purchasing the 3-year option.

The Choice Is Yours!

Whilst these three amazing trackers all offer some of the best value for money, they are only part of the range of trackers we have in our store.

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

The weather’s getting colder, the budgets, just like Santa’s trousers, are getting tighter and you’ve got the annual stress of trying to buy that special someone something they’ll actually like and use! What do you give to the man or woman who has everything?

We think we’ve found the answer, well 3 answers in fact!


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!


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..

SmarTrack RECO S7

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.

Tracker Monitor

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.

Thinkware F70 Dashcam

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.


We don’t cover Lapland or the North Pole but if you’re in the UK you can get your device, regardless of how much you spend, installed at your home or work within days of purchase. 

 Give the gift of security this holiday season.

 Spread the cost of your device into 3 equal payments by using PayPal at checkout.

Christmas comes but once a year, but theft can happen anytime. Get your vehicle secured and make sure you have a happy, healthy and safe Yuletide. In the run up to Christmas, our team of helpful elves is available from 9 am – 6 pm, Monday to Friday on 0330 043 3993 to help you stay on the nice list.
