Spireon Inc., best known for its vehicle-tracking solutions, has debuted its new service provided exclusively through used-vehicle dealers, called Kahu, which allows customers a way to link their vehicle to their smartphone and track its whereabouts.
According to the company, the Kahu service includes an installed device on the car that connects the car’s location and trip data to a user’s smartphone application, providing real-time access to information such as vehicle location, theft recovery services, driving alerts and more.
“With over 2.5 million connected vehicles on the road today, Spireon offers the broadest open Connected Vehicle service available today,” said Shawn Hansen, Spireon’s chief marketing officer. “Kahu is the first aftermarket connected vehicle service available exclusively from car dealers. The thousands of car dealers that use GoldStar GPS for collateral and lot management can easily add Kahu to increase profits, as well as help any car buyer connect their car to the Internet.”
While providing several value-added services for the customer, the device is also potential a profit-point for dealers, who can use the device to track and manage their vehicle inventory prior to sale and sell Kahu as an add-on service for any vehicle.
