How S5 Plus Trackers Work

After being fitted in your vehicle, the compact and discreet tracking device sends real-time GPS location data, travel time, ignition status, and battery voltage level information directly to your mobile phone. The S5+ tracker includes a powerful Automatic Driver Recognition (ADR) system which ensure the vehicle cannot be driven if the driver card is not present. Plus, it includes 24/7 monitoring as well as anti-tamper and tow-away alerts for total peace of mind.

What our clients say

Danielle Coletti

Director, MEC Security

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.

James Sherratt

Fleet Manager, MSL Vehicle Solutions

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.

Steve Potter

Transport Manager, ThyssenKrupp

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.

Thatcham S5 Plus Tracker FAQs

  • How does the S5 Plus differ from the S5?

    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.

  • How does the S5 Plus differ from the S7?

    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.

  • What does Thatcham mean?

    The Thatcham Research Centre carries out vehicle safety, security, and repair research in the UK. They developed the Thatcham Categories, which are widely recognised by insurers, manufacturers, and the automotive industry.
