CarLinkBT Long Range offers today's most advanced convenience and security solution allowing users access to their vehicle without the use of a traditional remote control transmitter when combined with a Prestige, Code Alarm or Pursuit remote start, security or keyless entry system. The new transmitter concept was developed to eliminate the need to carry additional devices on your keychain. It's extremely thin design and rechargeable battery were intended to "stick-on" the back of any smartphone device or placed inside of a briefcase/purse to provide two-way functionality to the CarLinkBT smartphone app to lock/unlock and start your vehicle with over one mile of operating range.

We are excited to continue to introduce innovative telematics products to the remote start market," said Aron Demers, Senior Vice President, VOXX Electronics Corporation. "We believe CarLinkBT Long Range completes our CarLink Telematics offering, by giving the consumer three different and distinct control options – CarLinkBT with Bluetooth range of up to 100 feet, CarLinkBT Long Range for over one mile of operating range and CarLink Cellular with virtually unlimited operating range.
