Tracker Locate

In the fast-paced world we live in, car security has become more crucial than ever.

As technology advances, so do the tools at our disposal to protect our vehicles from theft.

One such innovation making waves in the car security market in recent years are those trackers utilising VHF technology.

In this blog post, we’ll delve into what VHF is in the context of car tracking and explore the tracking systems that leverage this technology to provide robust security solutions.

VHF stands for Very High Frequency, referring to the radio frequency range between 30 MHz and 300 MHz.

In the context of car trackers, VHF technology utilises these radio frequencies for communication and tracking purposes.

The use of VHF in car tracking systems has gained popularity due to its distinct advantages over other tracking technologies.

VHF tracking systems operate by transmitting signals between the tracking device installed in the vehicle and a network of strategically placed ground-based stations.

These stations, often operated by dedicated tracking companies, receive and triangulate the signals emitted by the VHF device, enabling much more precise location tracking.

One of the standout features of VHF tracking systems is their ability to penetrate obstacles that often hinder other tracking technologies.

Buildings, tunnels, underground car parks, shipping containers and dense urban environments can be challenging for traditional GPS trackers, but VHF signals excel in maintaining connectivity in these scenarios, ensuring that your car remains traceable no matter where it is.

Compared to some more power-hungry GPS trackers, VHF devices boast impressive energy efficiency.

This leads to extended battery life, a critical factor for long-term tracking solutions. With a VHF tracker, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your vehicle is protected without the need for frequent battery replacements.

VHF tracking systems offer exceptional accuracy, especially in urban areas where traditional GPS signals might struggle due to tall office or residential blocks and other obstacles.

The triangulation process enabled by VHF technology provides pinpoint accuracy, making it easier for the Police or security personnel to recover stolen vehicles quickly.

Now that we understand the advantages of VHF in car trackers, let’s explore some notable tracking systems that leverage this technology available here at Infiniti.

1. TRACKER S5 Plus

As we touched upon earlier, the Tracker S5 Plus uses a combination of VHF, GPS & GSM technology and also incorporates Driver ID tags, but it’s the VHF technology which really sets it apart from other S5 products. This makes the S5 Plus extremely resilient to signal jammers. 

In addition to Europe-wide coverage, geofence and tamper alerts, the S5 Plus also provides signal jamming alerts as a result of the integrated cutting-edge technology.

You also get access to the Tracker Touch app which gives you 24/7 visibility of the vehicle’s location right from your smartphone.

2. TRACKER Retrieve

Tracker’s Retrieve model was developed to protect unpowered or infrequently used vehicles or assets like caravans, trailers, etc. The device has a long battery life capable of up to 5 years on standby.

The Retrieve has its own built-in battery so does not need to be connected to the electrical system of your vehicle. This means that the device is quick and easy to fit and suitable for all kinds of vehicles and assets such as quad bikes, horseboxes, trailers, catering vans and even classic cars.

Despite this, the device still comes with integrated VHF technology which means it’s also highly resilient to modern tracker jamming techniques, the police force can quickly and efficiently pinpoint the location of the vehicle.

The Tracker Locate combines VHF with the more commonly used GPS and GSM technologies to send an alert if an attempt is made to jam the communication system. 

In addition to Geofence and battery disconnect alerts, the device is also connected to all UK police forces and will inform them of the initial location of the stolen vehicle.

This functionality allows the police to employ the precision inherent within VHF technology to track a stolen vehicle to its exact location, even if it’s hidden in a less obvious place, like a shipping container or underground car park.

As technology continues to evolve, so does the landscape of car security.

VHF tracking systems are at the forefront of this evolution, offering a reliable and efficient solution for vehicle tracking and recovery.

As the demand for enhanced car security grows, we can expect further advancements in VHF technology, leading to even more sophisticated and effective tracking systems.

I hope we’ve shown that VHF trackers represent a significant leap forward in the quest for robust car security. Their ability to overcome the limitations of traditional tracking technologies, coupled with extended battery life and increased accuracy, makes them a compelling choice for vehicle owners looking to safeguard their assets.

Whether you opt for established brands like those from TRACKER we’ve shown above, investing in a VHF tracking system is a proactive step toward ensuring the safety of your vehicle in an ever-changing world.

We hope we’ve shown the power and versatility of VHF trackers.

For those of you interested in those annual lists of which cars are the most popular to be stolen (and recovered), you probably won’t be surprised to see the Range Rover Sport remains top of the list in 2023.

The Range Rover actually takes up the first 3 spots in the list with the Sport, Autobiography and Vogue models respectively (their Evoque model also came in at #9), but that’s not what made this year so interesting.

The list for 2023 was unusual because it was the first time that a Hybrid vehicle made the list. The Lexus RX450h was a new entry at No. 6. Not only is it the first time an electric vehicle was included, but it was also the first time any Lexus made the list at all.


Whilst it might feel like Lexus has been around forever, this Toyoto-owned Japanese luxury brand only arrived in 1989, reaching the UK a year later.

Since then however, it has become a staple on our roads and has become the go-to vehicle for those looking for a luxury car with a world-class build quality and that all-important sense of style.

Its appearance on the list seems to imply that the desirability of the Lexus brand has reached an all-time high (at least with car thieves), so if you’re looking to secure your Lexus and keep it out of the hands of these scumbags, then we’ve got you covered.

With Lexus having approved Tracker systems as their de rigour security partner, we wanted to look at the best Tracker-built systems to help you keep your Lexus safe. So, let’s start with..


Lexus probably chose Tracker because it has an amazing track record when it comes to vehicle security and their Monitor system is no exception.

It features patented VHF technology which means that should your Lexus (or any vehicle for that matter) be stolen, it can be quickly and easily recovered, even if it’s in an underground car park or metal shipping container.

This feature also means that it’s resilient to other methods thieves use like signal jammers, making it one of the most comprehensive systems around.

It does of course come with all the alerts and notifications you would expect, thanks to its dedicated smartphone app which is all backed by a 24/7 control centre should you need it.


Like our previous offering, the Locate is another fantastic tracker for your Lexus. It too comes with VHF technology, but this one also combines that with GPS and GSM frequencies that can alert you when any attempt to jam the signal is detected.

Not only that but it is also connected to police forces across the UK. Should your vehicle be stolen, forces up and down the country will be alerted of the location of the car.

The VHF signal makes locating it not only quick but incredibly accurate, so there’s no escape for the thieves.

The Locate also utilises Tracker’s ‘Touch’ smartphone app to put the power of this amazing system right into the palm of your hand.

Keep your Lexus off next year’s list by buying one of these amazing trackers.

You don’t need to drive a Lexus to benefit from these systems.

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.


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.


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).


As the morning and nights get darker earlier and earlier, you want peace of mind that your vehicles is safe and secure.
