    Any alarm is only as good as the guy fitting it. £300 should get you a good Cat 1 upgrade alarm and you would get change from that to.

    Give me a Sigma alarm any day, new range out soon and i'm off to a talk about the new product next week. Lotts of little bits and peices to compete with the likes of Toad and Clifford

    Yeah my mum has a Sigma alarm... seems excellent.

    Any ideas when the new lines will be available?

    Have now seen: http://www.navtrak-car-tracker.co.uk/ no prices though so guessing it could be pricey

    I have a toad and a clifford. Even though the clifford was installed by a very regarded company I still had some issues with it (its the 600 model though). The toad is great no problems but no thrills either.

    Think they are planning on launching the new Sigma in the spring, yes Navtrak's are pricey starting off for about £800 including 2 years subscription and going up to £1400 :shock:

    I have a Concept 300 on my Rover which has dual zone, proximity and window close options installed. As standard, including fitting it will set you back £300 but I'd say it's the best about in that CAT1 price range and it's a brand that your insurance company will recognise without question.

    Same here.

    The remote is very sensitive, sometimes it can work from a large range other times you have to go round to the other side of the car and click manically where the remote pick up sensor is . Apart from that its a great alarm
