    Default Can anyone tell about Tracking system: its pros and cons? urgent plz

    I have newly bought Toyota Corrola GLi. It has a tracking system. If i take it outside city, i need to inform the tracking authorities, else car will stop as soon as it goes out of city jurisdiction.

    Can anyone tell me about its merits and demerits?

    It is on the name of old owner. Can i get it registered with my name? procedures? charges?

    My tracker doesn't do anything. I've travelled from Faisalabad to Peshawar and nothing happened. I guess they were sleeping though. I don't find tracker of any use- rather get the car insured!

    You can get it registered in your name
    U have to get the previous owner to call then and have ur cell number registered as default against ur car
    For merits lets see
    In case some1 steals ur car or takes it without ur consent u can always have the car locked down untill further notice
    Thats the only one that comes in my mind

    And keep this in mind as well- thieves come prepared and hardly any of them leave empty handed. It is so easy to buy gsm signal/gps jammers in the market, WHICH block the signals of Trackers.
    Once a car is out of range, tracker company can't do shait for you. And I am sure they won't refund our car unless it is insured. Just my 2cents.

    What you can do is have a mutual agreement written on stamp paper for proof that if your car is stolen, it's their duty to locate it whether signals are blocked or not. Otherwise full refund.

    Yes u r right...if u install tarcker in ur car, then insurance is a must have thing for u...my car is also equipped with tracker in a way that if i leave fsd they will call me to confirm that its me taking the car or someone else even if battery connector is disconnected frm my car...tracker company will be informed through their device...

    Acha. And when thief turns on signal jammer, ask your tracker company to verify that their tracker cannot be blocked by a signal jammer.
    Signal jammers are very cheap and available locally. Just gotta search for it. As I said in an earlier thread: Ayat ul kursi and Insurance.

    hehe nice combo that. I went to Darra adam khel and Peshawar- no call from tracker company. They are usually sleeping and don't give a shait. Tracker installed is by Falcon, their office is in Kohenoor plaza.

    Tracker: will ONLY locate your car of it gets stolen and if the thief hasn't blocked the signals by using a signal jammer. Most thieves know where the trackers are installed and the wires etc.

    Insurance: cover loss if car gets stolen.
    Covers cost of denting and painting.
    For every part that is replaced, you only pay a certain % on depreciation.

    My car is insured by EFU and I've claimed over 60,000 in repairs till now. A few days ago I got dents fixed and parts repainted. Cost was 9000. Didn't pay a penny except for 20 rupees to photocopy papers. An insured car depreciates 10% every year (5% per 6 months) so I guess if your corolla is 2012 model, it has already depreciated 20%.

    So if you get work done for 100,000 you will only pay 20,000. Now tell me, tracker or insurance?
    Plus, all the parts used are Genuine and brand new no hunting for used parts in scrap yards

    And nothing beats Ayat Ul Kursi. But destiny is in the hands if Allah Swt.

    Remember the thread where this unfortunate fellows civic burst in flames? Wish it was insured:p

    And, denting and paint etc is free in insurance. You only pay for parts!

    I think should not install tracker, should insured the car. if you insured the car, then no need to install tracker. if your car lost, insurance company will pay. if you install tracker and lost your car, thief jam the tracker, then what you can do?

    Nope. First 6 months is 5% depreciation. That's the case with EFU. As soon as car leaves showroom, bam 5% depreciated. So imagine f-16 drops a bomb, 63,000 ka nuksan lol. Taubah.

    can u plz explain
    Okay.

    My swift costs 12,62,000. Insurance company insured that amount, 12,62,000.
    Every car depreciates(Loses it's value) so the company insures the market rate of the car.
    First 6 months, car has lost 5% of it's value and so on. After 8 years, I would have to pay 80% of parts. I think Painting and Denting is still free even after 8 years. Hope that helped
