Trackstar approved accessories help you to keep your system running as smoothly as possible as well as providing that extra bit of security to keep your car secure.
With Driver recognition tags, S7-S5 upgrade kits faraday pouches and more, our Trackstar accessories are a must have for any security savvy vehicle owner.
From January 2019 Thatcham rules no longer state that a CAT5 driver recognition tag has to be kept separate from the vehicles’ keys.
This is due to the increase in keyless theft, of which over 80% of all vehicle thefts now are.
If you have a CAT5 driver recognition tag, which doesn’t have a keyring, or a pre-2021 S5 which uses this same fob type, you can now purchase a replacement driver recognition tag case.
Instructions on how to move the circuit board into your new fob are available.
The new TN475 Trackstar S5 system has a completely redesigned driver recognition tag.
Taking its inspiration from our parent company, Teletrac Navman’s tear drop logo, the new TN475 S5 Driver Recognition Tag is stylish and unobtrusive.
If your system was installed in 2021 or later but you have a black driver recognition tag, you can find out if you can use this tag by logging in to your MyTrackstar app and scrolling to the “account” section. If the tab saying “tags” can be pressed, taking you to a pair tag page you can use this tag.
Over 80% of vehicle thefts in the UK are through ‘Relay Attack’.
These keyless attacks utilise readily available hardware to clone your key’s signal and allow entry in to your car by tricking it in to thinking the key is nearby.
Faraday pouches use a mesh inside the pouch material to block the signal leaving the pouch which in turn prevents a relay attack from happening.
At Trackstar, in addition to having a stolen vehicle tracking system, we also suggest using a faraday pouch to keep your key safe, especially when at home.
The Trackstar branded faraday pouch is easy to use and adds that bit of extra protection to put off any would be thieves.
