CES 2006: DriveSync GPS car tracking


Are you a concerned parent who worries about their son or daughter borrowing the car? Are they driving it too fast? Are they driving it safely? Now you can find out with the introduction of the DriveSync.

Information on speed, distance and how a car is being driven is tracked via GPS satellites and recorded on the DriveSync receiver and USB data key. Because the information is tracked off-line, there are none of the high fees often associated with GPS tracking. Results can be viewed by detaching the data key from the receiver unit and inserting it into your USB port. Tracking results are uploaded to the DriveSync server, which turns the data into reports.

All sounds great in theory, but I’m not sure I’d have appreciated a parental driving analysis when I was a young ‘un! If you’re worried about your kids about their driving habits, the DriveSync will be available in February 2006. Or you could simply stop them using the car!
