Hesitant About Letting Your Teen Take Their Car When They Leave for College this Fall?

August 24, 2011 Leave a comment

It could be very nerve wrecking and at the same time exciting for your teen to go off to college, and many parents wonder if allowing their teen to take their car with them is the right choice.  If  their driving habits worry you, or your simply worried of the unknown, you can use the SafeDriver to monitor their driving and promote safety. The easy-to-read keyfob display will keep track of the car’s maximum speed, distance traveled, and number of sudden stops since the last reset.

The unit’s simple installation will give you peace of mind in a matter a minutes. Simply plug the sensor into your vehicle’s OBD-II port and sync to the keyfob display. Data will be sent from the sensor to the keyfob via radio frequency. The keyfob attaches to your keychain, so you easily access the data without getting into the car. And as long as the sensor and keyfob are synchronized, the sensor will continue to collect and transmit data, even if the keyfob is not in the vehicle.

SafeDriver has a built in tamper alert, letting you know if the system has been unplugged or if the keyfob battery has been removed. Resets require a PIN and if an incorrect PIN is entered a tamper notice will flash on the display until the valid PIN is entered. Read more
