Common Questions

Why do I need it?

There are many reasons why people need vehicle tracking. For most it is simply about being more efficient and saving money. The VTU008 will let you know where a vehicle is now and give you accurate history/mileages of where it has been.

How does it work?

The VTU008 uses two technologies in one box. It uses a GPS Satellite antenna (similar to those used in Sat Nav products) for positioning and the mobile phone network for sending the positions back to your PC.

How much does it cost?

With our unit you pay £329.99 and you own it. We do not charge monthly fees, we do not make you sign long contracts and we do not charge you if you want to move the unit between vehicles.

You can use your own SIM card or buy a Pay-As-You-Go card from us. You manage your own account. The GPRS cost depends on the amount of miles you drive. At factory settings the unit spends around 1 Mb every 1500 miles (with Orange Pay-As-You-Go that is about £3).

Is it difficult to fit?

No it is very simple to fit. Only two vires need be connected - live and ground. Optionally you can use it with the supplied cigarette lighter adaptor.

Can it be hidden within the vehicle?

Yes the VTU008 high sensitivity edition can be fitted discretely, usually under the dash.
