Spireon Inc. recently introduced GoldStar Connect, a full-featured connected car mobile application that gives buy-here, pay-here dealers and other creditors the opportunity to increase customer loyalty and profitability.

With the new GoldStar Connect mobile app, consumers now have access to all the benefits of connectivity - real-time location access, trip history, vehicle health alerts and recovery solutions for stolen cars - as an add-on at the time of purchase.

Among the new features are stolen vehicle recovery and insurance discounts.

PassTime has debuted the Elite 6 device, the latest entry in its Elite line of GPS devices.

With an installer-configurable starter-interrupt setup option, installers can now integrate Elite 6 into a much broader selection of vehicles than ever before. The setup configurations also allow Elite 6 to more easily address the challenges posed by newer ignition technologies found in push-button start vehicles as well as many advanced stop-start engine systems.

Elite 6 also features LTE communications for superior network longevity as well as a discrete, precision GPS system for enhanced location pinpointing.  In addition to the advancements in installation flexibility, Elite 6 also boasts a 20-percent size reduction.

Further, Elite 6 contains advanced self-override features which give consumers multiple options, including a mobile app, to utilize disable override commands.

Elite 6 will begin shipping to PassTime customers in early November.
