    UK Owners - Tracker or Porsche Vehicle Tracking System

    Porsche now offer their own Thatcham Category 5 Vehicle Tracking System, and all cars built after August 2005 have preparation for the system installed as standard. Porsche's system appears similar in specification to the established Tracker Echo service. As usual, of course the Porsche system is more expensive. Is it worth it? Indeed is it as good as the long established and recognised Tracker. Anyone any experience of either? Thanks

    The Porsche VTS tracker is included in the 2007 spec car as standard, but the annual fee of Pounds176 is additional to list price.

    Re: UK Owners - Tracker or Porsche Vehicle Tracking System

    I've found the system excellent in reporting vehicle movements. I have to carry a small piece of black plastic in my wallet so it knows I am the real driver. Forget my wallet and I get a text in minutes followed by a call to my mobile then a call to my office then a call to my home (if I dont pick up). Seems very reliable so far (4 months)

    Thanks for the info, but I was under the impression that only preparation for Porsche VTS was standard, the actual system install is around Pounds1,200

    My understanding is that on the 911 part of the MY2007 price hike was to cover the factory-fitted VTS which is now standard spec.

    I can confirm that post July 2006 all 911s sold in the UK will have the tracker fitted as standard. Although included in the base price fitting is carried out by the UK dealer.

    Thanks for your responses, one and all.
