Aftercare, a leading provider of F&I products — including the Aftercare Extended Warranty — has announced the introduction of a remote GPS tracking device for powersports vehicles. The device is available through dealers and can also be purchased directly by consumers from Aftercare (uninstalled).
AftercareGPS is a must-have for consumers who want to keep track of their powersports equipment. AftercareGPS can be set up to send alerts to a cell phone, an email address or both. Alerts can be modified to meet the owner’s individual preferences. Motion, low battery, speed violation, geo fence entrance and departure are just a few of the alerts that users can receive to keep track of the vehicle’s use. With AftercareGPS, owners can stop worrying about their ride while they’re sitting inside.
“The Aftercare GPS system is a natural fit for us because it offers tremendous peace of mind, and that’s what Aftercare has been all about for more than 25 years,” Aftercare vice president Tom McCarthy said.
Aftercare’s GPS Tracking System comes with a small unit that is attached to the vehicle battery. The customer receives a unique code that allows him/her to log onto AftercareGPS.com and create a unique user name and password.
AftercareGPS.com also retains a history of the vehicle’s use. Remember that restaurant with the great apple pie? Where was that? With AftercareGPS you can locate that special restaurant in moments! Reminisce about a previous trip or plan a new adventure with the help of the AftercareGPS.
And if the vehicle is ever stolen, the owner could find it within a matter of minutes, contact the police and have it recovered before any damage is done.
The Aftercare GPS Tracking System retails for $639 (uninstalled), which includes a one-year subscription to a personalized tracking map. Renewal subscription fee is $80 per year.
AftercareGPS offers huge profit potential for participating dealers, including residual income from renewal fees.
