POWAY, Calif., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The company behind the Auto-Finder(TM), a patented new family safety product that guides you to your parked vehicle from up to 1/2 mile away, announced that sales of the product during the Holiday 2009 season exceeded expectations and the initial consumer feedback from customers who purchased the device has been very positive.
Finder Technologies, located in Poway, California, said that the Auto-Finder was just introduced to the market in October 2009, and the Company has received unsolicited comments from customers who attest to the effectiveness of the device and are relieved to not have to worry again about where they parked.
"We have received letters and emails from customers thanking us for inventing such a helpful device," said Jim Berntsen, President and CEO of Finder Technologies. "For instance, we received a letter from Marilynn and Gordon of Ramona, California. They said that they were parked deeply amongst many cars outside the mall and the Auto-Finder brought them right to their car. They said it was '..amazing and fun!' and that 'this gadget is really helpful, especially for folks who are at this forgetful age.'"
Berntsen said they have sold the Auto-Finder through select Radio Shack® retail locations, catalogs such as SkyMall®, and directly through their website at www.auto-finder.com. He said this month they are scheduled to be in more catalogs like FirstStreet® and JC Whitney®, and featured on websites such as CarAccessories.com.
The Auto-Finder is the first of a new category of family safety products featuring Finder Technologies' micro antenna system. The Fynder(TM) technology platform is superior to GPS or mobile device apps because it guides you to your vehicle instantly without the requirement of open sky for satellite signals or having to preset your location every time you park. The Auto-Finder is the perfect gift of safety and comfort for loved ones who need to find their vehicle quickly in the event of danger, severe weather, snow, forgetfulness or confusion.
Finder Technologies will have more information about the Auto-Finder and the Fynder technology platform available at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 7 - 10, 2010, booth number 1026, in the Location Based Services TechZone section, in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
