If you drive a Mercedes-Benz, then high-quality, high-performance and high levels of luxury are going to be qualities that you look for in all aspects of your life, including the vehicle you drive.
Sadly, your exquisite choice of car will also be admired by those looking to steal it. Even the most ardent car thief has taste it seems. Obviously you’ll want to keep your Mercedes away from those nefarious types, so for that you’ll need a tracking device for your Benz, but the market can be a little daunting at times. Don’t worry, here at Infiniti, we’ve got you covered.
Before we dive into the Mercedes trackers themselves, let’s look at what these devices installed on your Mercedes, or any make for that matter, are going to give you. A tracker will do more than just give you a fast and efficient location on the vehicle if it’s stolen, but just having it fitted can also help reduce your insurance premiums, avoid potential damage to the car, help you keep your no-claim bonus and save you a whole-load of hassle!
To help you navigate the various options when looking for a Mercedes tracking device, we’ve put together a list of the best ones on the market to suit all budgets, requirements and cars, so let’s take a look at what is going to keep your ‘Merc’ exactly where you want it.
ScorpionTrack DRIVER S7 ALS
The first one we’d recommend is the ScorpionTrack DRIVER S7 ALS. This tracker offers fantastic value for money and, unlike many other similar devices on the market at this price-point, it retains its insurance-approval status as a Thatcham category S7 device. ScorpionTrack have been working in this field since 1973, so their pedigree is well-established.
Not only is this tracker great value for money, the DRIVER S7 brings with it a host of fleet-tracking services that all come as standard. It comes with a free app for your smartphone and associated web software so you can track journey history and driver behaviour analysis. Perfect if you manage a fleet of company cars, but just as useful to keep your eye on how the other members of the family are treating the Merc. Add all of this to the European coverage, connection to a 24-hour control centre, tow away and tamper alerts and geofence alerts you also get, and the DRIVER S7 ALS stands out in any crowd.
SmarTrack Protector Pro Global
One of our most popular devices is the SmarTrack Protector Pro Global, another tracker that delivers incredible value for money whilst retaining a small physical footprint, but within its waterproof shell packs the latest GPS vehicle tracking technology and works beautifully on any Mercedes-Benz.
With 24-hour control centre access, smartphone functionality and European coverage, you can be sure that it will be worth every penny. It’s even transferable to a new vehicle, should you want to change cars in the future. With nationwide installation from a Thatcham-approved installer available, this is one of the best Mercedes trackers you can buy.
SmarTrack S5 D-iD
Our final choice is another amazing tracker from SmarTrack; the S5 D-iD. This one really is cutting edge because, instead of using driver tags synonymous with most S5 system, this one uses your own mobile phone and its biometric security to identify you as the driver of the vehicle.
This one really is the top of the tree when it comes to vehicle security and uses Thatcham’s strictest criteria when it comes to insurance approval (S5). Not only that, but this device leads the industry when it comes to protection from key theft, key cloning and relay theft. You won’t get better than this device at this price point so look no further.
For many people the Mercedes-Benz is the pinnacle of driving pleasure and if that’s you, then you want to protect your pride and joy. Any one of these trackers will work fantastically and after all, don’t you and your Benz deserve the best.
