DALLAS--Nov. 18, 2013: AT&T* today announced that on Friday, Nov. 22, it will sell the Audiovox Car Connection™ Elite Series, a telematics and location-based service solution designed to help consumers monitor, manage and maintain vehicle health and safety. AT&T will exclusively provide wireless 3G connectivity for the Car Connection Elite and consumers will be able to access up to the minute information through a mobile app or web interface.

The Audiovox Car Connection™ Elite Series is a do-it-yourself plug-in On-Board Diagnostic (OBDII) device that will work on almost all 1996 and newer model year vehicles. The solution allows you to know where your vehicle is and can provide you walking directions to where it is parked when needed. Users can setup safety zones and receive alerts when a driver enters or exits those zones. The device can reduce driver distraction by restricting cell phone usage** and provides driver scores to coach young drivers. It also monitors your vehicle's health with diagnostic reports and reviews recent trips to help monitor fuel consumption which may allow you to conserve gas and save money.

Audiovox Car Connection™ Elite Series will be available on AT&T or through AT&T retail stores at a price of $179.99. The product comes with no contract required, no activation fee, and only needs a $10 per month data plan.

"Combining the power of the AT&T wireless network with Audiovox telematics services allows our customers to connect to their cars and continuously receive up-to-date information," said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, Emerging Devices, AT&T Mobility. "Safely enabling connectivity across all vehicles is our goal, and we are excited to work with Audiovox to bring such a great set of services to the market."

"AT&T and Audiovox are pleased to provide a new self-installed telematics solution for today's consumer driving needs," said Tom Malone, president of Audiovox Electronics Corporation. "The driver distraction, teen driving and safety zone features of Car Connection Elite all help protect the driver and vehicle, and it addresses a growing area of consumer concern."
