Tracker question

A potential car I am going to buy has a Cobra tracker, have no clue how trackers work.

- How do I pay for it to be activated?
- How much is a subscription normally?

Any advice would be great.

Thanks

You have to ring Cobra/Vodafone direct to activate.

They only do 1 year subscriptions, you can't buy a permanent deal.

Cost is £145 (I think).....

Total waste of money, the item is crap, the monitoring system and the customer service /support is completely shite. The ghost is the ultimate weapon against vehicle theft, we can do these on the gtr as we have done several 07973733441

I've had terrible experience with Cobra - didn't bother then activating it. Load of balls and terrible service. Waste of money in my opinion.
