My opinion....If the system only trace car ...75 X12 =900/yr... no worth
but if I subscribe this service I can even check for my location like
Taiwan car built in GPS, when you lost you can chk where u r( got map)
plus free internet access like streamyx unlimited wireless access and can
add on to current/original car alarm... then is good.

r bcoz u can check the location of your vehicle through your h/p or PDA.
There is a map showing whr is your current location and also with text
description as well. This GPS car tracking system can add on to any car
alarm systems.

There is a 24 hours/365 days control center to monitor emergency
situation such as theft, car hijacking etc. Once received an emergency
alert, the control center will start to track the vehicle and inform
Police the location of the vehicle.

The centre will inform the police and the victim, then the victim will
have to go to the stated police station to lodge a report(or the police
will also inform him/her - guess u know for what reasons) and when he/she
finally find their car, I bet they will be at least RM1.5/= poorer, with
all the expenses to all the "necessary personnels" minus the missing items
(accessories, ICE and others)and need to pay extra monthly/yearly
subcription to centre...headache.Frown
This is my friend's experience when his WAJA got stolen in Bukit
Damansara, and he had the "Captor" installed originally by Proton/Edoran.
