What are the differences between MotorsFit trackers and others?
You have probably all seen trackers for less than 100€, with or without subscriptions, and trackers for more than 300€ with subscriptions, why such differences?
To put it simply, there are 3 categories of trackers:
-The basic ones in which you have to put a sim card yourself. The basic ones, in which you have to put a sim card yourself, and then the position of the vehicle is queried via SMS. The advantage is obviously the price, but several disadvantages are associated with it, such as the absence of a history of movements (essential traces for the police for their investigations), the risk linked to white zones (sim card with a single operator) and the absence of details as to the accuracy of geolocation (which can vary by several hundred metres...). In short, they will allow you to locate your vehicle briefly and approximately, but will never be a tool for the police to recover your property (we could also add the quality of the system's autonomy as well as its ability to resist constraints such as water, dust and Kärcher...?)
-Models without subscriptions. These work with low frequency radio networks (Lora or Sigfox). Here again they can be interrogated via sms to give you a position, and as far as the position is concerned, it can vary by several kilometres! They are moreover limited in the number of positions taken during the day. Same remark as before for the autonomy and the resistance to constraints, and there again, unusable by the forces of order.
-Models with subscriptions and history. These are the models that equip all luxury cars (they have been imposed by insurers from a certain value of vehicle, proof of their effectiveness). They are most often multi-operator and international to avoid white zones. They are accurate (to the metre), and can be remotely configured, often equipped with options (remote starter disabling, etc.). They are used daily by the police for their investigations and the dismantling of networks. Their statistics speak for themselves: they enable 7 out of 10 stolen vehicles to be recovered. This is the positioning of the MotorsFit units.
Will my MotorsFit device allow me to reduce the price of my motorbike insurance?
As mentioned above, insurers require such devices for vehicles over a certain value (€60,000). (proof of the effectiveness of the system).
As for the savings you can expect, La Mutuelle des Motards lowers the excess if you install a GPS tracker. Other insurers also offer other facilities, but one thing is certain, this is an element of negotiation for you.
