Liberty, Texas — Cimble announced a Basic version of its SecureConnex in-car telematics system.
The SecureConnex device, which must be professionally installed, allows consumers to monitor and track their vehicles with their iOS or Android smartphones. It is designed for 2008 and newer vehicles.
The Basic service for the device is free for one year with purchase of the $399 device, and features remote vehicle location, door lock/unlock, panic button and horn honking. After the first year, the service costs $69.99 a year or $179 for three years. Purchasing the three-year service adds window and trunk control.
The Premium plan, which is $149 a year or $299 for three years, adds remote starting functions, along with geo-fencing, continuous tracking, window control and maintenance notifications, among other things. Cimble is currently running a promotion that drops the price of the SecureConnex down to $149 after an instant rebate if a three-year Premium plan is purchased for $299.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
