Hi All,

Seems that campervans are getting stolen again. Id like to fit a tracker to mine for a reasonable cost. Any recommendations appreciated!

thanks!

I have something called Smartrack by Global telemetrics as my tracker
I have an app on my phone so I can check on the vans position
If the alarm goes off or it is moved such as lifted onto a trailer I get a call from the monitoring station.
Had it since I got the van and never had any problems so difficult to say if it’s any good but would prefer to stay incident free.
I once forgot to put on my trickle charge during winter and they rang me to say my battery was running low

I had mine fitted by global telemetrics. Fitting was invisible (I can't find it) and very neat. Once I left the headlights on running down the starter battery, the tracker then switched to internal battery and alerted Telemetrics. I got a call soon afterwards from them alerting me the tracker may have been disconnected. So seems they are quite efficient.

Anyone have an idea what these devices cost to buy, install, maintain (monthly payments etc)?
Do you get insurance reductions?
Cheers.

Yes to the last part, the amount varies but you should expect 5-10% reduction.

Mine cost £588 in 2015 which included cost of installation and lifetime during ownership of the vehicle for tracking services. I think if you intend to keep the camper for more than 2 years the lifetime contract is cheaper than the annual one

Doo let's keep our Kombis safe Smile  . . .

. . . but can Scooby suggest that any Kombi specific details concerning anti theft devices etc. is not discussed in open forum - general discussion is fine - but you doo not know who is out there watching. Suspect
