Mopar Electronic Vehicle Tracking System (EVTS)
Mopar’s Electronic Vehicle Tracking System, launched in late September 2010, allows owners to find out where their car is, and whether it is being driven too fast or too far — via text message. The Mopar system uses Guidepoint Systems’ tracking network to provide nationwide tracking, and is available on any Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, or Ram vehicle with a 16-pin diagnostic data port.
The Base plan has a stolen vehicle locator with real-time tracking and a thousand-dollar theft protection warranty; it is transferable and upgradeable. There is no subscription fee with the Base plan.
Silver adds the “Security Fence,” so owners can set speed and distance parameters for their vehicles; a text alert is sent to the owner if the parameters are exceeded. The Silver plan also includes arrival/departure notification, historic trace maps of a vehicle’s past locations, 24/7 emergency service dispatch, automatic theft notification, online tracking (up to 200 per year) and OnCall,™ an on-board panic button.
The Gold plan includes Silver features, plus 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.
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; owners cannot upgrade to Gold. Optional service plans do not require additional hardware or installation charges.
At launch, the Mopar EVTS Base Plan (part 82212457) cost $459 plus installation. The Silver Plan (part 82212459) cost $149 per year; the Gold Plan (available only at the time of installation) cost $249 per year.
