    You think I should remove it, or leave it be. Or, could I get any benefits from it, I.E. activate it to get some insurance benefits?? Thanks

    It is what it says a Fleet tracker that enables a company to keep track of its fleet of service vehicles etc. It has no benefit to insurance etc. If you can find it that easy so can a thief :) Maybe contact the previous owner and see if they want to buy it back...Check the log book to see whos it was ?n

    As Paddy says, it is a tracker used by fleet companies. I have one in my ALD lease car. Very useful for me, but won't give you any beneift at all if you're a private second-hand owner. It records all trips made in the car, recording times, mileage and location (based on the local telephone code). I then use this to note which are private and business trips on the Profleet website. I have found that on previous cars it has been left activated. I've been able to see where my old cars have ended up!

    Oh, that’s a bummer, thought I might be able to activate it?
    You think I should remove it? I presume its just plugged in and not wired into the immobilizer?
