The system is defeated by putting the vehicle in the garage with roof that will block GPS signals (concrete will block 100%)

Do you know what cellular network they use? If GPS satellites are invisible - do they use cellular towers to approximate location? Where did you purchase Silver lifetime fro $300?

Re: Mopar Electronic Vehicle Tracking System (EVTS)

I looked into insurance discount for this. In my case reduction would be $20/year (out of about $1,100). Not worth money/hassle if insurance decrease is your motivation. Also service provider for this has only one independent review I could find online and it is negative.

Re: Mopar Electronic Vehicle Tracking System (EVTS)

installed in blue

the one part I dont show well is the OBD connection. ZYOu actually remove your current plug and then attach this EVTS harness in line and it actually becomes the new OBDII Plug. I was worried this might interfere with my Aeroforce gauges bacause only one thing can use the OBD PORT at a time. but inline has caused ZERO problems and both seem to work fine.

link to install manual at j4j http://site.justforjeeps.com/guide/82212457.pdf

Rob -

did you already have the Silver plan and they upgraded you? or did you have the base system and they offered the Lifetime as you regestered your account ?

Thanks!

This discount of 20% still available?

I had LoJack in my old Chevy and it always saved me the cost of the subscription every month insurance so I found it worth it.

I was hoping my new keep ha something similar and this appears to be the best option. Hard to find reviews on it though and what peoples thoughts are.

Is it worth it? Are the savings cost effective? How easy is it to defeat?

Does this system to remote unlocks and locks? Remote start? I can't find too much information on it. I'm debating this or the viper gps smart start.
