Directed Ships Its Newest Connected Car Product – Viper Connect
VISTA, Calif. (September 23, 2019) – Directed announced today that it is now shipping Viper Connect, its newest innovative connected car product. The all-new Viper Connect is the easiest and fastest way to add location-based monitoring and tracking features to vehicles through a simple OBD-II port installation. Viper Connect also pairs with any DS4 or DS4+ systems to enable the full suite of connected car functionality, including remote start and security capability, provided through the Viper SmartStart app. “We are thrilled to be shipping Viper Connect, a major advancement in our connected car portfolio,” said Geoff Weathersby, VP Connected Car at Directed. “Viper Connect offers a seamless, stand-alone connected car experience that is a perfect solution for monitoring teenage drivers and tracking small business vehicles. The ability to add vehicle control by pairing Viper Connect with our DS4 Digital Remote Start and Security system, just like you would a remote, really sets this product apart.” Directed has delivered award-winning connected car solutions for over a decade, including the recently launched and enormously successful Viper SmartStart Pro. Viper Connect offers the same Viper SmartStart Pro technology in a plug and play OBD-II form factor. Similar to the Viper SmartStart Pro, Viper Connect uses built-in GPS and LTE cellular technologies to locate and monitor customers’ vehicles. Viper Connect features on-demand location, allows users to get directions to vehicle location, share vehicle locations and set up two SmartFences, which provide alerts when vehicles enter or exit specified locations. It also encourages safe driving through speed alerts. Viper Connect requires the Viper SmartStart app (version 5.1 or newer) and a service plan subscription.
