GPS Enabled DriveOK units alerts parents when their teens go too far or too fast.
SAN DIEGO -- January 2 2006 -- DriveOK, a leader in providing parents with the information they need to monitor where their teens are driving and how fast they are going announced today the availability of its enhanced, easy to use, GPS enabled unit to monitor vehicles remotely. The self installed GPS unit mounts easily under the dash board of virtually all cars and sends requested data to the home PC whenever pre-set limits are exceeded. According to President Mark Wells, "Statistics prove that new teen drivers are at a higher risk to themselves and others. Our DriveOK unit sends driving information to any Internet enabled PC or MAC enabling parents to track where their kids are driving and how fast they are going.
Unlike expensive GPS units that only use an in-dash screen, the DriveOK system transmits speed and location to the companies secure web site. Parents simply log on to see a digital map indicating the exact location, speed and direction the car is going. "You can check your child's driving habits at anytime by "locating" the unit or you can use the DriveOK included free software to set "limits" as to where kids are allowed to go and how fast they are allowed to drive. "You can set parameters to immediately notify you if the car leaves a pre-defined area. Called a "Geo-fence" the DriveOK unit alerts the parents' cell phone and sends an email whenever the car leaves predefined area or the car is driven faster than per-determined limits" said Mark Wells, the company's CEO.
Installed in less then 15 minutes the unit can easily be concealed under the dash board. Some parents have chosen to not tell teens of the unit's capabilities while others make teen driving privileges dependant on being monitored. The choice is up the parents. "The enhanced tracking gives our customers an added level of security knowing where and how their kids are driving", continued Wells. "The value of DriveOK has proven itself to parents, insurance companies and teen drivers."
Available directly by Internet at the company's web site, www.driveok.com the units cover all of the United States and Canada. Retailing at less than $200 the unit can be transferred from car to car or left permanently installed.
