Let’s face it, there are plenty of GPS trackers around for mapping driving or riding journeys. But what if you could get a notification if someone backed into your car in a carpark or sat on your motorbike? SIZZAPP can do that.
More than just a bog standard GPS tracker, SIZZAPP is a complete 4G eco-system that puts a control unit in your car or bike, which connects to a smartphone app to give you complete awareness of what’s happening with your vehicle while you’re away from it.
It has an SOS function should you have an accident, or find yourself in trouble, which adds to the security and safety capabilities on offer. In a nice touch, if you’re car or bike’s in for a service, you can shut off the alerts temporarily.
Fully waterproof, which means it could work in boats, the system is connected to your car or bike via a simple two wire connection. Should someone remove the unit, it will notify you and continue to track for a few hours thanks to a battery backup.
Aside from the security capabilities, it can also do all the normal stuff too, like logging and sharing routes, monitoring your speed and braking habits, stop times and essentially keeping a full log of data, which means it’s great for fleet and rental vehicles too.
What we like more than anything though is the fact there’s no monthly fees for SIZZAPP, it’s a one time purchase, so every future update is free. Not only that, you own the data, which is stored dedicated encrypted secure servers.
Priced at $439.95 (at the time this article was published), it’s distributed locally by you guessed it, SIZZAPP Australia (and its partner Custom Motorcycle Addiction). You can find out more, and even buy it, online.
