By equipping their vehicles with S5 plus trackers, vehicle owners can unlock a host of benefits.
The Crystal Ball S5 Plus tracking system provides the highest level of protection for both commercial and personal vehicles. In addition to utilising GPS/GLONASS, GPRS, and GSM technology, ensuring accurate location tracking, the immobilisation feature ensures the vehicle is not driven by anyone unauthorised. If you’re looking for the highest possible level of security for your vehicles, this insurance-approved tracker is the number one choice.
Insuring high-value vehicles can be costly, but with our Category S5+ vehicle trackers approved by major UK insurers, you can benefit from lower insurance premiums. By utilising the tracker S5 Plus, the risk of theft decreases, making insurers more willing to offer reduced premiums.
The S5+ tracker includes a sophisticated multi-alert system. If an unauthorised driver tries to operate the vehicle, the 24/7 monitoring centre is instantly alerted and can contact the vehicle owner instantaneously. Moreover, thieves and vandals who try to tamper with the device will trigger the vehicle battery disconnection alert. It’s the best way to reduce your risk of vehicle theft and stolen assets.
As the most advanced addition to the Thatcham Category system, the S5 Plus tracker incorporates innovative features that enhance the security of your vehicle fleet.
The key feature that sets the S5+ apart from the S5 and S7 trackers is immobilisation, providing an additional layer of security against potential vehicle theft. With this feature, the vehicle is automatically immobilised when the ADR card is not present.
With Crystal Ball’s S5 Plus tracking system, you can conveniently monitor the location of your vehicles and drivers anytime and anywhere. The intuitive dashboard on the app provides real-time information on the location, speed, and status of all tracked vehicles.
To ensure added security, the S5 Plus tracker includes Automatic Driver Recognition (ADR), preventing unauthorised individuals from accessing your vehicle. Each authorised driver receives a security card that they must carry at all times.
The S5 Plus tracking system allows you to track your most valuable vehicles through our user-friendly mobile app. Compatible with both iOS and Android, the app provides details about each vehicle’s route, destinations, travel duration, and distance. The intuitive interface makes it suitable for both commercial and personal use.
A wide range of individuals and businesses can benefit from installing Thatcham category S5 Plus trackers, including the following.
As a customer of Crystal Ball for 10 years we can always rely on their customer service and expertise for our tracking needs. We have used them for a variety of services and are always impressed with their systems, which are also very user friendly. Their Polite and friendly customer service has always made us feel happy to renew our contracts, as well as add new ones throughout the years.
I decided to transfer our fleet over to CB and it's one of the best decisions I have ever made. Their team are superb to deal with, in the current climate with vehicle utilisation being so high I was apprehensive about the task of getting everything switched over, but the team have made this as easy and flexible as possible. The technology they offer is far superior to our previous provider. If you are considering changing your provider, I would certainly recommend speaking to the team at Crystal Ball.
Our main reasons for employing tracking were the traceability issues, keeping an eye on deliveries and the security factors. But Crystal Ball has given us so much more than that. We’ve made savings everywhere, and I wouldn’t want to run this fleet without it now.
The S5 and S5 Plus trackers are both Thatcham approved systems that we offer at Crystal Ball. While they are in many ways similar, the key difference is that the S5 Plus provides the additional feature of automatic immobilisation when the driver card is not present. This means that the S5 Plus offers a superior level of security for its users.
The S5 Plus and the S7 are two models of Thatcham approved tracking systems offered by Crystal Ball. They have some overlapping features but in general the S5 Plus has more advanced capabilities. While the S7 offers 24/7 monitoring, tow and tamper alerts, and a user-friendly mobile app, the S5 Plus has additional features such as remote immobilisation when the driver card is not present.

The Thatcham category S5+ device is equipped with advanced GPS tracking and GSM technology, enabling it to provide the exact location and journey history of a stolen vehicle. This information is crucial for the UK police forces and helps them recover stolen assets more efficiently. The tracker’s Europe-wide coverage ensures that the vehicle can be tracked across borders. Additionally, the system includes geofence alerts and vehicle movement alerts, which can instantly notify you of unauthorised movement, enhancing the ability to track and recover stolen vehicles.
The S5 and S5 Plus trackers are both Thatcham-approved systems that we offer at Crystal Ball. While they are in many ways similar, the key difference is that the Thatcham category S5+ provides the additional feature of automatic immobilisation when the driver card is not present. In contrast, the S5 only sends an alert in the event of an unauthorised movement. This means that the S5 Plus’ slightly higher price includes a superior level of security for its users, while the Thatcham S5 tracker cost is lower to provide a more budget-friendly alternative.

While the S7 offers 24/7 monitoring, tow and tamper alerts, and a user-friendly mobile app, the S5 Plus has additional features such as remote immobilisation when the driver card is not present. These key features mean that the tracker S5 plus offers a much higher level of security for your vehicles.
In addition to the installation of a Thatcham category S5+ tracker with GPS/GSM technology, following vehicle security best practices can help reduce your risk of theft. Where possible, park your vehicle in a private underground car park or garage with an alarm instead of on the street. If you have to park on the street, choose well-lit and busy streets with heavier footfall to reduce the risk of theft. Remember to double check the car door handle when you lock up – electronic remote jamming attacks are sometimes used by criminals to stop the doors locking.
