Vista, Calif. (5-12-03) - Directed Electronics, Inc., the world's largest aftermarket vehicle security and remote start company, as well as a major car audio and mobile video supplier with established brands including Orion and Precision Power, is now shipping its new GPS tracking systems to authorized Directed Dealers.

"These systems are a natural extension of our core security and remote start brands," said Michael Malinowski, Product Category Manager for GPS. "They can be sold as stand alone tracking and wireless remote control systems, or they can connect to the latest Directed security and remote start systems via plug-in serial interface, for seamless 2-way command and control of certain vehicle functions via web or telephone from anywhere in the world."

Every Directed GPS Tracking System comes with a minimum of a full year of stolen vehicle tracking capability in the box, with no additional charge and no activation fees.
