I feel that a Thatcham class 1 alarm is only valid if required as an insurance requirment is only valid if installed by a company / installer on the Thatcham approved installer list. I do have an issue that as you can purchase the alarms on the WWW one must question the benefit of such a system. Companies are advertising in the UK to install such systems so one must ask the question if you claimed on your insurance policy for a theft related crime would the claim be rejected ? (read more)

The AI606 is great value for money, i bought one for £205 fully fitted. Its simply to use 1 button to turn it on and lock my doors and another button to unlock my car. I have had 3 of these over the last 7years and as long as they keep making them i will buy them. (read more)

Excellent Alarm - I had it fitted by a recommended company and I've had no problems with it at all. It's fitted in a MR2 mk1 with t-bar so the facility to arm without ultra-sonic sensors active is great and so simple to do. Auto-door locking is great and it doesn't lock the doors if you start with the door open so no chance of being locked out. Read the manual properly and the numerous options will do pretty much eveything that I need. Remote central locking works great. Would recommend to... (read more)

If u what to purchace a car alarm that is only covered by the installer, you later want clame if its broken and find he is no longer traiding get a Toad alarm.
The toad website (Toadalarm.com) isnt toads its a company selling them, there is no support and please dont call them as they are rude and insulting. this is a pointless alarm if purchacing it from a distance becouse getting them back to fix it is going to be imposible. and if the installer goes under, say goodby to your...

Anyone considering getting a Toad alarm fitted should try contacting the Toad 'help'line first to see how shocking their customer service is. My Toad Ai606 alarm goes off for no reason, usually at around 3am this despite being disarmed. When I called recently to make a claim under the lifetime warranty (which states that the unit is covered for the lifetime of the car), I was firstly told to take the car back to the original fitters (not likely as they are around 500 miles away!). When I... (read more)

I Fit Toad alarms and have done for 10 years, If it is fitted properly then it will perform faultlessly, I have fitted hundreds and error is usually with the user or the vehicle itself having a fault, ie flat battery ! a very common problem especially in winter.
As a mobile fitter the last thing I want to do is return to a job because of a fault, Hence using Toad for reliability.

My alarm has been on the car now for 3 years and 7 months !!! its still working perfectly !!!
my conclusion is that most of the problems mentioned come from the actual wirng of the vehicle and not the alarm unit itself.
these alarm are infact fitted to a certain specification, otherwise they do not meet thatcham category 1 approval.
on top of that, every installer knows this, and has also read the codes of practice, regarding the fitting and erm what else ???
your insurance... (read more)

Wouldnt bother with a Toad Ai606 car alarm. If it wasnt needed for my insurance I wouldnt have it, nor would I ever consider buying a toad alarm ever again, after speaking with several other people who are experiencing thesame problems with this alarm. Complete waste of money, now have to get it taken out and a new one fitted, I cant keep jump starting my car everyday.
Probably the worst £250 I have ever spent. Doesnt do what I want it to do, flattened my cars battery. Poor product, Ive used... (read more)

Just an update to the review I did earlier on the Ai606. It does lock you out of the car as one reviewer said but this is the anti hijack system which would be very useful in car par parks etc to stop anybody opening the door when you have just switched on as that is the best time for them...this can be switched off as so can the interior sensors its adjustable to suit, in case you wanted to leave your windows slightly open, if you have the booklet that came with the alarm it involves the...

Toad Ai606 alarm keeps going off at any time since I bought my car, phoned toad, said it needs a service. Guy came disconnected the ultasonics inside the car because its a convertible and activates on noise, rain on the roof can activate the ultasonics.
The car also has a microwave sensor fitted and works fine.
The service guy couldn't find why it activates on occasions, what was the money for then?
Called him back a month later and he changed the bonnet switch by chance it was a little... (read more)

Had the Toad Ai606 fitted to my Toyota Supra. Workied fine until this glitch. Quite disappointed with installer's attitude - quite patronising and even rude at times...
Had this system fitted and all seemed well until 3 months later when I started having problems.
Basically, when I disarmed the alarm with the remote it unlocked and the hazards flashed as usual but it didn't 'chirp'. When I went to start the engine it kept on making a ticking noise that sounded like it was coming from the... (read more)

I had my Toad Ai 606 fitted to my Nissan Skyline by Car Alarm UK. They came round to my house within a week of me ordering and fitted the alarm to a very high standard. I would say an excellent alarm fitted by an even better company. (read more)

I fitted this Toad Ai606 Thatcham Category I Car Alarm system to my Toyota Supra and it has performed very well since. I have had NO false alarms.
The only thing that is a concern is that if you start the car and jump back out and close the door behind you, the alarm locks the car doors within 10 seconds.
So you could find yourself locked out of your running car as the valet company did despite me warning them. If you have the 2nd remote easily available you can get sraight back in, but... (read more)
