How our Stolen Vehicle Tracking works

Our stolen vehicle recovery services are made possible by constant communication between our GPS/GSM tracking system (which is fitted covertly to a vehicle) and Vodafone Automotive's server infrastructure:​

  • Our live tracking data (made possible by a SIM card) means that we’re able to pinpoint a vehicle's position and movement, including speed and direction of travel​.

  • The combination of our GPS and quad band GPRS/GSM technologies enables the constant transmission of the position data – across over 360 local GSM networks​.

  • The SIM card sits in a lightweight, robust black box, which has heavy-duty casing and is a low battery drain device, with internal battery back-up​.

  • Our stolen vehicle tracking systems are designed, manufactured and tested by a team of engineers in Vodafone Automotive's state-of-the-art production facility at our Headquarters near to Milan - they are rigorously tested to meet all OE automotive standards​.

We are Thatcham accredited

With our Thatcham accreditation, you can rest easy

Our products are accredited by Thatcham Research, who work with vehicle and security equipment manufacturers, including ourselves, as well as the police and insurance industry.
