The Internet Connected Car

Think about it. First it was SmartPhones. You could get your email all the time from any where. Next it was tablets. Take the Internet into your living room so you can watch TV and surf the Internet. Now the Internet (the Cloud) is becoming part of your car.

There are a number of technologies that are bringing the Internet to your car. With winter just a month away, it’s time to look at the Viper SmartStart 3.0. It will connect your car to the Internet and keep it warm for you on a schedule.

The Buzz

The Viper SmartStart 3.0 is the first Viper Android, iPhone or BlackBerry smartphone app that serves as a cloud-connected remote start system and offers SmartSchedule — a patent-pending feature that lets your phone act as a auto remote start and warm up your car based on an electronics schedule.

“Directed Electronics is the only company in the game bringing customers the revolutionary features of the cloud-connected car,” said Mike Simmons, President of Directed. “Viper SmartStart 3.0 offers drivers unprecedented connectivity with their vehicles — and this is only the beginning, we have a lot more to come for our customers.”
