    Tracker Horizon and Origin B2

    Hi
    Just found out my car will be ready 2nd or 3rd week June

    I have decided to have the Tracker Horizon installed by the OPC - a little more but the porsche engineers can fit it.

    I have also decided on an Origin B2 speed camera checker. Has anyone got this combination. I am concerned that I will have GPS receivers all over the car. Can anyone recommend a fitter in the Southampton area that has 997s and is top notch in terms of work. I dont mind driving further out to get a the work completed

    Re: Tracker Horizon and Origin B2

    You should have no problems with Anglesea Car Radio, 23 - 27 Church Street, Shirley, Southampton Tel : 023 8077 9013. Contact : Peter Allen. He will do Tracker as well.
    I've used Anglesea for many years and are just about the only people I would trust to work on my Boxster, apart from the Porsche dealer themselves. The installation in my car is very discreet, the laser detector up by the mirror and the GPS antenna hidden away. Send me a PM if you want to see the job on my car and we will fix up a meet as you are obviously local to me.

    Unless you want to come on wtsnet's Dorset Rennteam Run on 19th June.

    Re: Tracker Horizon and Origin B2

    You may want a Tracker for other reasons but Porsche Insurance do not insist on one.

    Re: Tracker Horizon and Origin B2

    Correct. But they do offer a discount if so fitted. I believe their phrase was "strongly recommended".

    Re: Tracker Horizon and Origin B2

    Hey, I used to live in Shirley as a student. We used to joke that if you wanted anything, you could probably find it on Shirley high street. It sounds like this is still true!

    I can vouch for Dreamcar's B2 install. Very nice. Might have it done myself when I've got some spare cash!

    All are welcome to the meet in Dorset on 19th June. Come along!

    What are tracker Horison and Origin B2?

    Re: Tracker Horizon and Origin B2

    Tracker Horizon is a theft alert/tracking device. It alerts the Tracker call centre when it detects the car has been moved without the keys, and they call you. If you confirm it as stolen, they tell the car to broadcast a 'help, I'm being stolen' signal which all the police in the UK monitor, so they can follow and stop the car and arrest the thieving so-and-so. I think Horizon also uses GPS, so is still of use even if they ship the car off to France.
    see www.tracker.co.uk

    Origin B2 is a GPS speed trap / hazard locator, speed limit advisor, and laser trap detector.

    It sounds very similar to Lo-Jack that is available in the USA.

    Do you have the link to that? I am really curious about it. I think it is a great investment. Thanks

    Thanks, but i want to ask if it is necessary or is the alarm system in the Porsche already good enough?

    The alarm that comes with the car with okay. It comes with a radar interior surveillance system that detects any intrusion into the car. My salesman claims that the only way they can steal my car is to haul it away on a flatbed. I bought the Lojack for just a little extra piece of mind. The Lojack system will automatically call (or email) up to 5 numbers you give them to let you know if your car is moving. It also allows Lojack (and the police) to track the car. They can tell where it is. Most insurance companies give an additional discount if you have a system like Lojack (over and above the normal discount for a regular system). So, if I am somewhere and an "unauthorized" person tries to move my car, Lojack immediately notifies me.

    Thanks for the Explantion PS CA. I will definitely buy it i think it is much safer since i am moving to Atlanta this fall. Don't know how safe is it there. Maybe it will save me some money in the long run with insurance company. I am paying 6000 dollars a year since i am only 19
