“Start Your Car from Virtually Anywhere with Your BlackBerry”

Vista, California (CES) – Directed Electronics announced that its award-winning Viper SmartStart, which allows users to start their car with their iPhone, will also work on most BlackBerry smartphones starting in Q1 2010.

According to Mike Simmons, Executive Vice President of Directed Electronics: “Viper SmartStart will soon be available on BlackBerry devices through a free app in BlackBerry App World, allowing BlackBerry users all of the great SmartStart features that iPhone users have been enjoying since the product was introduced in October.”

According to John Durbin, Director of Project Management for SmartStart, “Retailers already carry the necessary hardware – either the VSM100 Viper SmartStart module, or the equivalent DSM100 Directed SmartStart module, each with an MSRP of $299. Besides the free App, users will also need a compatible Viper remote start or remote start security system.”

The DSM100 is available at thousands of authorized Directed retailers nationwide while Viper SmartStart hardware continues to be available at Best Buy stores.

BlackBerry users with premium security or remote start systems from Viper, Clifford or Python will be able to download the free SmartStart app from APPWORLD, have the VSM100 or DSM100 professionally installed on their vehicle, then activate their account. Depending on installation, SmartStart users will be able to start their car, lock and unlock the doors, pop the trunk, or panic their horn or siren which can also be used as a car finder – all using their BlackBerry.

According to Kevin Duffy, President of Directed Electronics, “We are making SmartStart technology readily accessible to millions of new consumers with BlackBerry smartphones, and SmartStart for other platforms will follow later in the year.”
