US: Directed adds roadside assistance to remote start iPhone app

Directed Electronics has announced Viper SmartStart 2.0 which allows users to control vehicle security and convenience features using their iPhone, BlackBerry or Android smartphone.

With Viper SmartStart 2.0, Directed has dramatically lowered pricing, with dealers advertising Viper SmartStart as low as $199 as an add-on to compatible Viper systems.

Free roadside assistance comes with Viper SmartStart 2.0. Customers can access the Viper Motor Club with just the push of a button in the Viper SmartStart app.

And this is just one of many features Directed will be adding starting in the 4th Quarter. “We are focused on delivering a simple and affordable smartphone solution with features that drivers really value, including the new Viper Motor Club,” said Mark Simmons, Executive VP of Directed Electronics.

The new Viper SmartStart 2.0 Module (VSM200) can add SmartStart capability to the millions of cars on the road with Viper systems installed.  Now most Viper remote start and security systems installed since 2003 are SmartStart compatible.

In addition, two new complete Viper SmartStart systems are being introduced.

Note: Dealers are advertising the Viper VSS3000 Remote Start System as low as $299, while the Viper VSS5000 Security with Remote Start System is being advertised as low as $499.
