    As some of you may be aware Scorpion trackers currently have an offer on to us RS owners where you simply pay for the first years subscription and they supply the tracker and install for free. Link is as follows:

    Scorpion S5-VTS Tracker – Ford ST/RS OFFER

    I decided to take the plunge and go for the offer after speaking to Allan at Scorpion. Paid the £129 over the phone and the tracker was delivered the next day

    Two days later I received a call from the installation company, RS connect who got me booked in for the morning of the 15th.

    On installation day the engineer called 20 minutes in advance to advise that he was on route. Once he arrived had a brief chat (socially distanced) and he cracked on.

    An hour or so later work was completed. Received all the activation emails from Scorpion so that I can track on the app, put it in service mode etc

    All in was a faultless service. I hope I never have to leave a review on how it performs if the car goes AWOL but so far so good.

    Just need to inform my insurance company shortly. Not expecting a reduction in premium but if I get a few quid back its a bonus

    I was waiting for this, thanks.

    Are you aware of there being a time limit on the promotion? I’d like to wait until next month to get this ideally.

    Give them a call, option 1 and ask to speak to Allan. Can’t see it being around for long at this price

    Nice



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob, thats now been replaced by an RS knob innit.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    I’ve also gone for the tracker. Too good a deal not to! Is the Scorpion App any good? Mine arrives tomorrow and then just the installation date to sort.

    The app from what I have used so far is good. Shows the route and the speed travelled. You can set other monitors up, drivers etc but not really had a chance to play with it fully

    Did not make any difference to my insurance premium but that was not the point of buying it.

    For what I have paid vs the added protection I think it was worthwhile

    Is this like a camera where evidence can be used against the driver who fits it ?

    @Kr1s yeah it can be 🤣

    I have live track but done in such a way it can be left in the garage if needed… thats why i went the commercial tracker vehicle route, and used the same one as my vans. Main use is its move alarm & geo fence, can be really handy if you leave the car for a service.

    The main issue i found it the time it holds the data, i can go back over a 12 month every trip with MPH for all on route

    Every dot is a speed change 😬 So you can really can hang yourself if the data gets in wrong hands.

    Not 100% sure but I believe so as Allan asked if I had ghost when I originally spoke to Scorpion. There is an option when you purchase for an immobiliser for an extra £100. No idea how or what it does compared to Ghost though

    I’d love a tracker or camera but there would have to be a quick delete button or an encryption system to access the info.
