Yeah, that's about comparable to the On-Star subscription.

Re: UConnect Guardian

Did a bit research on it. If you google "lojack vs guidepoint" some information comes up. What I didn't think about is that both GPS and cellular network signals can be jammed by easily(?) available jammers. Same for Lowjack FM signals. However, if the back end system is smart enough to detect that no feedback is received for X minutes then sound alarm it's OK I guess. Problem is it is not really explained how these systems work.

I think if you have comprehensive insurance these kind of services are useless unless your car is truly one of a kind (this is purely from theft recovery perspective. If you need to snoop on your kids then it's a different matter).

Re: UConnect Guardian

OK! this is there version of onstar,the question is, will this becomes standard on many of Chrysler automobile in the near future?like the new jeep in 2012, or will you be able to order it through your Chrysler dealer on your brand new Chrysler vehicle.

I saw on CNN a politician daughter was car jack for her gm truck,and because she had onstar they found the truck in a fast food parking lot,and they also catch the low life crooks. The politician say he was not going to renew the onstar feature when it expires,but he will now when it does.

Re: UConnect Guardian

My God! You people want this kind of system in your vehicles? Perhaps we should mount a webcam in your cars so we can all see everything going on all the time.

Not me. Not ever!

Re: UConnect Guardian

Ummm.... We already have an EDR

Event Data Recorder (EDR)
In the event of an airbag deployment, your vehicle is
designed to record up to 2-seconds of specific vehicle
data parameters (see list below) in an event data recorder
prior to the moment of airbag deployment. Please note
that such data are ONLY recorded if an airbag deploys,
and are otherwise unavailable. In conjunction with other
data gathered during a complete accident investigation,
the electronic data may be used by DaimlerChrysler
Corporation and others to learn more about the possible
causes of crashes and associated injuries in order to
assess and improve vehicle performance. In addition to
crash investigations initiated by DaimlerChrysler Corporation,
such investigations may be requested by customers,
insurance carriers, government officials, and professional
crash researchers, such as those associated with
universities, and with hospital and insurance organizations.
In the event that an investigation is undertaken by
DaimlerChrysler Corporation (regardless of initiative),
the company or its designated representative will first
obtain permission of the appropriate custodial entity for
the vehicle (usually the vehicle owner or lessee) before
accessing the electronic data stored, unless ordered to
download data by a court with legal jurisdiction (i.e.,
pursuant to a warrant). A copy of the data will be
provided to the custodial entity upon request. General
data that does not identify particular vehicles or crashes
may be released for incorporation in aggregate crash
databases, such as those maintained by the US government
and various states. Data of a potentially sensitive
nature, such as would identify a particular driver, vehicle,
or crash, will be treated confidentially. Confidential
data will not be disclosed by DaimlerChrysler Corporation
to any third party except when:
1. Used for research purposes, such as to match data
with a particular crash record in an aggregate database,
provided confidentiality of personal data is thereafter
preserved
2. Used in defense of litigation involving a
DaimlerChrysler Corporation product
3. Requested by police under a legal warrant
4. Otherwise required by law
Data Parameters that May Be Recorded:
• Diagnostic trouble code(s) and warning lamp status
for electronically-controlled safety systems, including
the airbag system
• Airbag disable lamp status (if equipped)
• Time of airbag deployment (in terms of ignition
cycles and vehicle mileage)
• Airbag deployment level (if applicable)
• Seatbelt status
• Brake status (service and parking brakes)
• Accelerator status (including vehicle speed)
• Engine control status (including engine speed)
• Cruise control status
• Traction/stability control status

Your jeep key fob remote starter is only good for 328 feet,with a fancy celluar phone with a data plan ,you could save their website to your phone,log into your account,and start your vehicle from anywhere in the world,use it as a remote extender to start your vehicle from thousands of miles away,while having the security features with it.

Awesome technology.

Yes, I suppose so.

But these systems will be easy for hackers to create mayhem in the future. Can you imaging some 15 y/o in a far away country hacking into the OnStar system and shutting down every car connected to the system at once - just for fun?

Don't think it's possible? I do, and I'd rather not be a part of it.
