Starts the moment we receive an alert, enabling the Vodafone Automotive Secure Operating Centre to give the Police a head start on the thieves.
Vodafone Automotive’s Secure Operating Centre can track a stolen vehicle anywhere in the world where the Global System for Mobile phones (GSM) operates, (over 180 countries). Vodafone Automotive’s ‘Roaming’ SIM card automatically communicates with the ‘best-connected’ local GSM network.
Live tracking via an open line to the Police gives them the best opportunity to get the vehicle back undamaged and to catch the thieves as well. A minute by minute history of where the vehicle has been driven during the theft helps recover valuable contents.
All Vodafone CobraTrak systems come with the reassurance of a 3 year warranty.
Triggered when motion is detected with the engine switched off.

All Vodafone CobraTrak units perform a regular self-diagnostic check – meaning that any issues in performance can be immediately addressed.
GPS tracking means the Vodafone Automotive Secure Operating Centre can follow the vehicle and liaise with any patrol car, giving the Police live tracking data, including speed and direction of travel.
Means that thieves simply cannot identify that a tracking system is present.
In many cases, when you change vehicle, we can simply re-install the system in the new vehicle and transfer the subscription – protecting your initial investment. A small administration charge applies for this service.
How Vehicle Tracking Works
Vodafone Automotive Stolen Vehicle Recovery services are enabled by constant communication between the GPS/GSM tracking system fitted covertly to a vehicle, and Vodafone Automotive’s server infrastructure. This provides pinpoint live tracking data regarding a vehicle’s position and movement, including speed and direction of travel.
Thanks to the integral roaming SIM card which automatically communicates with the best connected of more than 360 local GSM networks, the combination of GPS and quad band GPRS/GSM technologies enable the constant transmission of position data.
Vodafone CobraTrak systems provide 16 channel 158 dBm tracking and high sensitivity that extends positioning coverage to places where GPS tracking was previously not possible.
