GPS Roadside Security and its mobile

by jaguaracer / April 11, 2006 4:58 AM PDT

I have used a GPS/Cellular device from RadioShack called the Roadside Companion.
With a one year contract you receive all of the great benefits of roadside assistance, plus real-time vehicle tracking. Services include towing, jump starts, fuel delivery, flat tire repair, winching/stuck-vehicle service, lock-out service plus reimbursement for expenses up to $500. Comes with a Cigarette Lighter Adapter and can be used in any vehicle! My friends have even used it on the ATVs.

24/7 call center operators can pinpoint your exact location to alert police, fire, ambulance or roadside assistance. It has a big red button that you push for help and they have a website you use to locate/track your vehicle in real-time. It is down to $49 on

I just wanted everybody to know about this great product as it has been a life saver for me.
