Category 5 Tracking system fitted to Audi RS6

At RCA Cheadle we had the opportunity to have a good look at a brand new Audi RS6 when we had it in the garage to fit a Thatcham Cat 5 tracking system. Insurance companies are increasingly likely to insist on a Category 5 tracking system being fitted to expensive cars such as the Audi RS6 . The Thatcham Category 5 tracking system has special personal tags and if these are not present when the car is started or moved the system immediately alerts the monitoring centre to track the vehicle movements. The police can then authorise the engine to be immobilised  when it is safe to do so.

Apart from providing a reversing camera the Pioneer AVH Z5000 also adds Digital Radio (DAB) to the Porsche Cayenne.
Another good feature is it has Apple Car Play and Android Auto to play apps from a smart phone which include Navigation. Almost standard features such as Hands free phone and music playing are also included.

We at RCA think the Kenwood Dnx8170Dabs improves the look of the Carrera dashboard (but we might be biased). However it does add features that were not originally available such as Touch Screen Navigation, Hands free phone calls, Digital (Dab) radio, Apple car play, Android Auto, rear camera and DVD player. It also maintains Normal Fm radio and Cd player.

The Kenwood DMX7017Dab is fast becoming our more popular unit. We believe this is because this is due to its smart appearance and flexibility to provide an all round entertainment system.

The new headrests with Necvox screens enable all round entertainment. Each screen has DVD fitted which allows different videos to be played. Complete with infra red headphones to listen to the DVD's  mean that the driver and front seat passenger can listen to their music etc regardless of what the back seat passengers are watching

RCA  installed a Kenwood head unit with DAB and added a Digital TV and reversing camera in this Mercedes Vito. As you can see the aerials are fitted to the rear side windows so that are hardy noticeable. RCA has used a small dome camera for safe reversing which is also discrete/

Dash Cams can save money because many insurance claims are settled on a 50% 50% basic when you cannot prove it was not your fault. A Dash Cam fitted by RCA will record cases of accidents so you can use the video to prove you were not at fault and get a full pay-out from the Insured.

RCA have take this picture from the passenger side since it is mounted discretely so it does not distract the driver. You can see the view via the windscreen and on the Dash Cam Screen.  At RCA we have a choice of models from manufacturers such as Black Vue, RCA and Silent Witness so we are able to give you a choice.  If you already have a Dash Cam we can install it own unit so it is permanently connected and the wiring is hidden.

Although is was not our easiest installation the result proved to be  worth the effort. The owner was delighted he now has a unit suitable to integrate his IPhone and has Dab radio so he can listen to all the Sport.
