GPS technology allows consumers to track a vehicle’s location, speed and battery level in real time

GPS technology allows consumers to track a vehicle’s location, speed and battery level in real time

PHOENIX, Dec. 5, 2011 – Imagine if your car could communicate with you – tell you where it is, where it’s been and how fast it’s going. Inilex <http://www.inilex.com> ®, the industry-leading provider of intelligent telemetry solutions for vehicle theft recovery, is putting this power into the hands of consumers with SkyLINK PROTECT <http://www.mysky-link.com/> , a Web-based service that reports on a car’s exact location and speed, and allows users to set thresholds for both. 
 
“SkyLINK PROTECT is about giving peace of mind to a car owner, family member or business owner when someone else is driving their vehicle,” said Inilex CEO Michael Maledon.  “It reinforces safe driving habits and enables owners to take corrective action, as needed, for the wellbeing of their families and employees.” 
 
The SkyLINK PROTECT service works in conjunction with SkyLINK <http://www.inilex.com/SkyLink/SkyLink.html>  , a GPS-enabled vehicle theft recovery device available through new and used car dealers, to provide real-time car monitoring services. With SkyLINK PROTECT, an online dashboard accessible from any computer with an Internet connection allows users to pinpoint the location of their car on an intuitive map, view its speed and even check the battery level. Historical reports can be generated within the dashboard or exported to Excel. 
 
SkyLINK PROTECT subscribers can also set multiple GeoFences, which pre-define geographic perimeters that the vehicle is prohibited from crossing. Alerts are sent via text or email to the car owner when the GeoFence is breached. Similarly, speed limits can be established from the online dashboard, and alerts sent when the car exceeds the designated safe speed. 
 
“With this service, we’re enabling SkyLINK owners to add another layer of protection to their vehicles and for their passengers,” said Daphne Herbst, director of sales for Inilex. “SkyLINK gives them the assurance that their stolen vehicle will be recovered rapidly and, with the addition of SkyLINK PROTECT, they can now keep a watchful eye on their cars even when they’re not the ones behind the wheel.”
 
In addition to monitoring high-risk drivers, such as teenagers, SkyLINK PROTECT is also useful for businesses that must track multiple vehicles. For example, auto dealers can keep track of cars while they are being test driven or used by employees. This ensures that cars are always accounted for, and drivers testing the cars are abiding safety rules. 
 
SkyLINK PROTECT is available as an add-on service to SkyLINK for only $119 per year. Vehicle owners with SkyLINK can visit www.mysky-link.com <http://www.mysky-link.com>  to sign up for the PROTECT service. Vehicle owners interested in installing a SkyLINK theft-recovery device can contact their local dealership.
