Car Insurance Companies | What is CAT 5 & CAT 6?

CAT 5 and CAT 6 tracking systems are sometimes required by insurance companies.

To summarise, CAT 5 tends to be for expensive cars and their nervous insurance companies.

The cost of a CAT 5 such as ScorpionTrack 5 tends to be more expensive for the consumer - but protection is greater.

CAT 6 is less secure, but more than adequate for most insurance companies and personal end user protection.

Cartronics Engineers can fit CAT 5 and CAT 6 tracking systems within 24hrs. We appreciate that insurance companies may have excluded cover for theft until a tracking system is fitted.
