If you own a vehicle over the value of £90.000 it is quiet common the insurance company will ask you to have this system installed to allow the insurance to be valid. The major advantages of Thatcham cat 5 is the ADR cards and remote engine immobilisation. The Cobra Cat 5 is unlike many other cheap devices on the market you can’t jam the Cobra Cat 5 tracking device unlike the ones featured in the grand theft auto UK TV program. These are much more advanced in many ways along with GSM jamming which not only detects a jamming attack it also reports it to the tracking control center. Giving them an advanced warning and they can watch every signal the tracking device is giving. With the GPS giving an exact location within 5 square meters you can’t go wrong.
The ADR cards have to be with the driver at all times or the Cobra Cat 5 will trigger an alert message. The cards are small enough to keep in your pocket or wallet for example, the most important part is the engine immobiliser which can be triggered by the traffic police if needed to stop the vehicle from starting.

What Cobra say about the Thatcham CobraTrak 5
The driver card is a discreet pocket-sized card that you carry with you whenever you drive your vehicle. On leaving your vehicle, the system automatically arms itself.
If the vehicle is moved without the driver card present, Cobra’s Secure Operating Centre is alerted instantly to a potential theft. This means that even if your vehicle is taken using your own keys, the theft is detected immediately.
How does it work?
The functionality is exactly the same as for CobraTrak ADR, but with the additional protection of Remote Engine Immobilisation:
Remote Engine Immobilisation
Remote Engine Immobilisation technology enables Police to authorise Cobra to send an alert to the vehicle to prevent the engine being restarted once it comes to a standstill. This significantly increases the chance of your vehicle being recovered undamaged, and can also help Police to avoid high speed pursuit of suspect vehicles.
