Thatcham Cat 5 Tracking System Fitted in Sheffield

Protecting Your Vehicle

If you own an expensive vehicle you will probably require a Thatcham Cat 5 tracking system fitted in Sheffield.

Without the keys, modern cars in Sheffield are much harder to steal and beyond the capabilities of all but the most sophisticated thief.  The criminal response has been to focus on stealing the keys in order to steal the car.  To tackle this trend of key theft Thatcham have been working with the manufacturers to develop new product. These products are state of the art with the ability for remote immobilisation, hence Cat 5.


The main features of a Cat 5 tracking system are: Battery Back Up, 2 way communication, Street Level Mapping, Police or Licensed Security Agreement, Positional Data Store, Illegal Motion Detection, Driver Identification, Approved Secure Operating Centre, Engine Crank Inhibition and Level 1 Police Response.

In a nutshell, the major difference between a Cat 5 and a Cat 6 tracking system is the Police Response.  Once notified that a vehicle theft has taken place, the Police can send a signal to immobilise a stolen vehicle.  This is usually done when the vehicle is stationary with the ignition off.  Once the ignition is off the vehicle will not start and the Police will already be on their way to recover the stolen vehicle.

I began researching an audio upgrade to my BMW and have visited several high end car audio specialists in the North West to get advice on possible options and costs …then I visited SOURCE. On walking in I was initially impressed with the SOURCE showroom display and the range of options to sample.There really is something to suit all budgets ,certainly far more comprehensive and wide ranging than any others I visited in the North West . The real “gem” of SOURCE is however their very detailed knowledge of all the technical and “fit” aspects and most especially the time they are prepared to spend talking through technical /price options without pressure to buy .As a result I returned a second time and again experienced the same friendly non pushy very informed advice as we explored the possibilities in a little more depth.Every question I had was answered,time was ,once again, not an issue and nothing was too much trouble including phone calls to suppliers to check availability/latest spec for my car etc .In the end I genuinely felt they wanted to advise the best system for me and definitely not just the most expensive. I am convinced you cannot get better than SOURCE for your car audio needs ,excellence like this is very rare in my experience and I strongly suggest you call in to this 5 star outfit – you wont be disappointed and I reckon you will be totally satisfied/blown away with the result if you buy.
