FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif.--Sept. 13, Corp. has been selected to showcase its new consumer automotive product at the PC Magazine Digital Village during the DigitalLife show, October 12-15, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. CarMD(TM) is a revolutionary automotive diagnostic tool and online database providing drivers with a fast, convenient way to monitor their vehicle's health. CarMD ( is available direct to consumers for $89.99.

"Anyone who owns a car and PC can benefit from CarMD," said Kristin Brocoff, marketing manager for Corp. "That is why we are so pleased to participate in Digital Village. Once drivers and holiday shoppers see its many benefits, we are confident CarMD will take its rightful place in glove compartments and PCs across America."

The CarMD tester, which fits easily inside a purse or toolbox, works on all 1996 and newer cars, light trucks, SUVs and minivans manufactured for use in the U.S. - foreign and domestic. The easy-to-use tester can be used to quick check an unlimited number of vehicles. Within seconds, its color-coded LEDs tell the driver if the vehicle's systems are running normally, which is beneficial when inspecting a used car or preparing for a trip.

CarMD customers also gain free access to an unprecedented diagnostic database with coverage for up to three household vehicles and support from ASE Certified technicians. This feature is invaluable in helping drivers with little or no automotive experience determine why their "Check Engine" light is on. All CarMD customers need to do to get a detailed diagnostic report for their vehicle is install the CarMD software, link the tester to their PC via an included USB connector and create an account. The CarMD online database does the rest, including running a report with probable cause and estimated dealer repair costs.

"Priced below a typical trip to the repair shop, CarMD provides empowerment and value for drivers," says Keith Andreasen, CarMD's director of technical services. "In the unfortunate event that their 'Check Engine' light comes on, consumers can now quickly determine the problem and what they can reasonably expect to pay to fix it. Drivers across the country are benefiting from CarMD, whether by saving time and money on repair costs, or simply obtaining peace of mind before taking a family road trip."
