New products on display at the American International Toy Fair, held in N
BOYNTON BEACH, FLA. -Motorola and Immobiliser are introducing the first security system for motorcycles that can remotely disable the engine.
The new GPS Vision integrates a Motorola CreataLink 2XT, two-way wireless data transceiver into a GPS/ security device from Immobiliser. GPS Vision is designed to work with Harley-Davidson motorcycles specifically and is purchased at the Harley dealer. The device can page the owner when the alarm is set off and enables wireless tracking, as well as remote ignition control.
Once installed on the bike, the GPS Vision can alert the owner's pager or two-way messaging device when someone tampers with the motorcycle. Using the two-way pager, the owner can then send wireless commands back to the bike to trigger a siren and flashing lights or to immobilize the engine.
Users can track the location of their motorcycle through a compatible PC or by phone through a 24-hour control center.
Harley-Davidson owners can also communicate and deliver remote-control commands to the GPS Vision via the Internet or Web-based wireless devices.
The Immobiliser security system fits the original factory wiring of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Pricing is determined by Harley outlets.
