ADR (Automatic Driver Recognition)

  • Discreet pocket-sized card carried with you when in your vehicle. Whenever you leave your vehicle the system will automatically arm itself.
  • If the vehicle is moved without the driver fob present, Vodafone Automotive’s Secure Operating Centre is alerted immediately. This means that even if a thief takes your vehicle using your own keys, the theft is still detected with immediate action taken.
  • Supplied with two unique driver cards.
  • The system automatically arms itself 70 seconds after the vehicle ignition has been switched off and the driver card is out of range (approximately 3 metres).
  • The system automatically disarms when the driver card is brought back in range of the vehicle.
  • If your vehicle is driven and the driver card has not been detected, a silent alert will be transmitted to the Vodafone Automotive 24 hour Secure Operating Centre. 
  • They will then contact you to check that vehicle theft has not taken place.
  • For added security, if the driver card is not present the system will generate an alert when your vehicle is lifted or towed away without the keys. An alert is also triggered when your vehicle battery is disconnected or discharged


Remote Engine Immobilisation

Enables Police to authorise Vodafone Automotive to send an alert to the vehicle. This stops the engine from being restarted once it comes to a standstill.  This feature significantly increases your vehicle’s chance of being recovered undamaged.

Why do I need a Car Tracker?

Car thieves have modified their methods to overcome modern factory-fitted security. As a result of techniques such as ‘relay attack’, thieves can now easily steal cars in seconds and a concerning number of these stolen vehicles are never recovered. Using any of our carefully selected range of car trackers can help to instantly recover your vehicle in the event of a theft.

What Car Tracker is best for me?

Choose from insurance approved, magnetic or hardwired car trackers. Each type of vehicle tracker will provide their own unique features and benefits.

How do Car Trackers Work?

Whatever the purpose, you can monitor your car tracking devices in real-time through your computer, laptop and smart phone. You can view any previous tracking history, including times, exact locations and speed, as well as set up motion alerts any time. You have full access to your own private mapping panel and tracking app allowing you to monitor and co-ordinate your car trackers from anywhere!
