Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 04, 2013
Firstech, makers of Compustar remote start and security solutions, will announce across-the-board compatibility between all current Compustar systems and the new DroneMobile DR-3100. DroneMobile is the company's smartphone car control solution that gives users the ability to control and GPS track their vehicles from anywhere on their smartphone.
The DroneMobile DR-3100 is the latest hardware update to the smartphone-car control solution that was awarded CES "Best of Innovations" in 2011. The new hardware is 60% smaller than its predecessor, the DR-2000, and features new processing technology powered by the Verizon CDMA network.
Previously powered by AT&T 2G (Edge), DroneMobile is one of the first telematics/tracking products to switch to the Verizon CDMA network. While comparisons between both networks are inconclusive, the network switch is attributed to the pending shutdown of the AT&T 2G network.
Termed as the "2G Sunset," AT&T recently initiated the discontinuation of the older wireless network in New York City, forcing customers with older smartphones and hardware to upgrade to 3G or 4G supported devices. The network provider has set 2016 as its goal-completion date.
With Firstech's direct partnership with Verizon, the company ensures the longevity of both Compustar and DroneMobile products. "Connecting your car to your smartphone is the future of the remote start and auto security industry," shares Compustar's Director of Sales Jay Kaminski. "Now we can promise to be a part of that future."
The DR-3100 refreshes DroneMobile's pricing structure: $199.99 MSRP and $149.99 MAP. Network changes are only applicable to users in the continental United States. Consumers and retailers can find more about the new DR-3100 by visiting http://www.compustar.com/drone.
