The unit has a life span of many years and does not require servicing. However, in addition to testing your tracking device at least twice a year, it is recommended that you test the unit after an accident or after any significant electrical work has been carried out on your vehicle.
There are a number of options available when selling your vehicle. You can sell the vehicle with the unit in it and the new owner will take over the monthly subscription, or you can re-install the unit in your new vehicle. If you choose to reinstall into your new vehicle, a charge will be levied for this service.
No – once the unit is activated, the signal is broadcast nationwide. If a stolen vehicle with an activated tracking unit moves within tracking range of any vehicle tracking unit (VTU), an alarm will sound and the tracking team will be notified. The tracking team concerned will be able to track the stolen or hijacked vehicle.
Return of the vehicle is by arrangement between the SAPS and your tracking companies Control Centre. Any vehicle that has been stolen or involved in a hijacking will have to go to a SAPS pound. You would then collect your vehicle from the pound.
