Plug and Play for Internet Connections

The Audiovox Car Connection kit is a device that went on sale at the end of last year, which tracks the car and monitors the driver. No screwdrivers or wrenches are needed for installation. The package includes a matchbox-size device that simply plugs into the OBD-II port, a required feature of vehicles built since 1996. It has a built-in GPS unit and a two-way cellular data connection, so the car is always connected, no smartphone required. Once an account is established and the unit is wirelessly recognized by the Car Connection service, owners can track their car’s movements and receive e-mail or text alerts should the vehicle be driven without their permission.
