Chrysler’s Mopar parts division has announced the launch of a new Electronic Vehicle Tracking System (EVTS), available through authorized Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram dealers.
Mopar’s system is powered by Guidepoint Systems, the leader in GPS-enabled stolen vehicle recovery systems.
Unlike other vehicle tracking systems, the Mopar EVTS offers nationwide tracking without a subscription (Device cost $459 + installation).
The system is available on Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram Truck vehicles and vehicles with a 16-pin diagnostic data port.
The Mopar EVTS is offered in three packages: Base, Silver and Gold.
The Base plan (Device cost $459 + installation) offers a GPS stolen-vehicle locator, real-time GPS stolen-vehicle tracking and a $1,000 theft-protection warranty. The system is transferable and upgradeable, with no subscription fees.
For added protection and service, owners may choose a Silver or Gold plan.
The Silver plan (Annual Fee: $149) includes “Security Fence,” a feature that allows owners to set speed and distance parameters for their vehicles. If and when set parameters are exceeded, a text alert is sent to the EVTS registered owner.
Other vehicle monitoring features available in the Silver plan include arrival/departure notification, historic trace maps of a vehicle’s past locations, 24/7 emergency service dispatch, automatic theft notification, online tracking and OnCall, an on-board panic button.
The Gold plan (Annual Fee: $249) includes all of the features in the Silver package along with unlimited online tracking and a full concierge service, allowing vehicle owners to receive directions, make reservations and receive other needed assistance at the touch of a button using the EVTS registered owner’s cell phone.
Both Silver and Gold packages are available as a one-year, renewable service plan.
The Gold Service Plan is available only at the time of activation. Optional service plans do not require additional hardware or installation charges.
