Trackstar extends stolen vehicle contract with BMW

Stolen vehicle tracking provider Trackstar has secured an extended contract with BMW UK after answering the manufacturer’s call for innovation.

It has developed a new integrated solution, which combines improved hardware and a new app with its existing AI-based tracking and voice assistant known as TARA (Trackstar Automated Response Assistant).

The new BMW Trackstar hardware is now smaller and less detectable to thieves, while also wired with new technology to not only provide a more secure connection, but also jam foreign signals, increasing the chance of recovery.

Installation has also been simplified, reducing fitting and testing times by up to 50% and is both Thatcham S7 and S5 approved.

The new Trackstar App, meanwhile, enables users to set geofences to determine when a tracked vehicle leaves a predetermined area, as well as create Driver Tags, which if not present when the vehicle is started, will create an immediate alert for the owner.

Jonathon Eaves, managing director of stolen vehicle tracking and traffic services at Trackstar , said: “Extending our contract is testament to everyone in the business, the true insights that shape our product development, and the constant drive for innovation in all that we offer.”
