991.2 tracker help


PCGB Member
Hello all, hoping someone can help. I’ve searched already on this but unable to get any clarity.

I recently picked up a 991.2 GTS and loving it. Due to a prior theft of my last car, insurance is insisting on an approved tracker for this one. I was about to purchase a 3rd party tracker from Scorpion (I have one of theirs on the bike and happy with it), but now question if this will invalidate the warranty?

Alternatively, the car should have a PVTS already fitted as standard. However, I have no fobs for this or any info on how to activate it, other than what I have read that it is operated by Vodafone and the subscription is with them.

I have no preference of one over the other, mainly looking for the path of least resistance overall. Any help, gratefully received!

Thanks very much,
Hi did you buy the car from a OPC. I just bought a 991.2 CS but it only came with one fob so they provided a new one. I would assume they would be available from an OPC whether you bought from them or not.
Welcome ...

The car may have a factory fitted tracker installed but not `activated` ... ask an OPC`s service department

When I was in a similar situation, the local OPC and Porsche Reading said that as long as the third party tracker fitment did not cause a warranted item to fail the warranty would not be affected ... but do check up on this !
Hi Neil
Firstly, congrats on your purchase. I've had my GTS from new and it's the most fun 911 I've owned. You'll love it! I believe that you'll need to discuss the Vodafone tracker with your local Porsche dealer as you'll probably need them to activate it and provide you with fobs. However, in the first instance you could maybe call Vodafone Automotive for advice. The number I have for them is 0808 168 5219.

Good luck

I assume these Vodafone trackers run on 5G?

MB have / are disabling their remote services as they run via Vodafone who are switching off 3G and, I'm lead to believe, 4G.
