Audiovox Launches Car Connection® PRO

Telematics for the 12 Volt Retailer includes the ability to add Remote Start and Lock/Unlock Modules.

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LVCC, CENTERHALL, BOOTH 10415 --

Audiovox Electronics Corporation (AEC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp.  (NASDAQ: VOXX), announced today that  it would launch its Car Connection Pro™ Telematics device at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Car Connection Pro includes the ability to add a remote start and/or lock/unlock module to the already popular Car Connection telematics device. Car Connection Pro will be available at 12 Volt dealers everywhere.  In addition to the new features, Car Connection Pro allows the consumer to Monitor, Manage,Maintain and Control their vehicle's health, driving habits, location, and through optional ZoomSafer technology, even restrict cell phone usage while driving. The company will be adding Automatic Crash Notification (ACN) that will allow the driver to designate who they would like notified if their vehicle, is involved in a collision and Roadside Assistance.  Car Connection Pro will utilize the Sprint wireless network in the U.S. and the real-time monitoring capability will go through OmniLink.

" Car Connection is one of the most exciting products we have brought to market in some time.  Adding the remote start and lock/unlock capability gives 12 Volt dealers a great profit opportunity and incentive to carry this product," said Tom Malone, President of Audiovox Electronics Corp. "Dealers can sell Car Connection Pro alone-a new category and new profit opportunity-or they can attach that sale to a remote start module or lock/unlock module.  The products are all professionally installed so the dealer has that profit opportunity as well….all while giving the consumer the ultimate in vehicle monitoring programs."

Car Connection Pro utilizes an innovative user interface accessible from your laptop, tablet or smart phone that allows you to monitor driving habits and vehicle location using Safety Zones (Geo-fences), stolen vehicle recovery, and even find your way back to your vehicle in a crowded parking lot with Car Connection's built-in Lot Spot feature. 

An online account with Omnilink is required to activate all the Car Connection Pro features. Two services plan options: 1) $9.95 per month + $19.95 one- time activation fee or 2) $89.95 per year (over $25 savings) + $19.95 one device activation fee.  These options provide consumers with the flexibility to select the package that best suits their needs. 

Car Connection Pro allows consumers to print out vehicle diagnostic reports to bring to their mechanic; lets you monitor fuel economy and can even assist in the coaching of young or elderly drivers. One of the key features of the product is its ability, through optional activation of the

ZoomSafer software, to manage the driver's cell phone use even eliminating the ability to text while driving.

Car Connection Pro also includes driver scoring and the company plans to announce partnerships with auto insurance carriers for future Usage Based Insurance (UBI) programs this coming year.     

Audiovox has partnered with Agnik, Omnilink, and Sprint for this program. Agnik will be supplying the vehicle analytic data that resides in the module; Omnilink will provide the online interface and Sprint the wireless access.
