PHOENIX – Inilex, a leading provider of aftermarket telemetry solutions for vehicles, today announced the launch of its a new mobile application that gives SkyLINK PROTECT users even more convenience. SkyLINK PROTECT is a state-of-the-art Web-based service that uses GPS to report on a car’s exact location and speed, and allows car owners to set notification rules for both. With the new application, PROTECT users can view all this information from their smartphones, tablet computers or other mobile devices, and even receive real-time text messages for violations, such as their vehicle exceeding preset speed limits.
In addition to guaranteeing auto-theft recovery, SkyLINK PROTECT benefits vehicle owners by enabling them to monitor their car no matter who is driving it, helping to promote safe driving habits. This is particularly valuable to parents of teenagers, employers with a mobile workforce and family members of high-risk drivers.
“It is increasingly clear that many parents and other car owners rely on their smartphones for Web-based information, rather than using their computers,” said Michael Maledon, CEO of Inilex. “The SkyLINK PROTECT mobile app makes the service more convenient, flexible and readily available to users.”
The SkyLINK PROTECT mobile application also provides quick and easy access to Inilex’s proprietary QuickFence early theft detection technology. QuickFence is a feature that allows customers to easily set a GeoFence around the current location of their vehicle. The owner is notified via text message or email if the vehicle moves from that location. A single click allows SkyLINK PROTECT mobile application users to activate or deactivate the QuickFence whenever there is a need, such as during an extended stay in an airport parking lot.
The SkyLINK PROTECT mobile application is available for Android phones and tablets, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. SkyLINK PROTECT subscribers can access the app at www.mysky-link.com or by visiting their Android Market and searching on “SkyLINK”.
