Default Guidepoint GPS unit failed

Got a call from Guidepoint , My GPS Security Company stating the remote maintainance on my unit failed . No other info as they left a message on my tel . I called the local installation company and they came out and replaced it for free . I never even knew anything was wrong with the box . I was told that this GPS unit can perform a lot of stuff gps wise like take a snapshot of where my truck is parked and store it so I can look it up online , If the truck is moved without the keys , , it will contact myself as well as Guidepoint . I can track it all over the US online as well . It uses some sort of a gyro type of set up and knows the truck is being moved . They know more about my truck than I do LOL ! The installer told me how to reset a new key instead of paying ford to program the keys as well as You can have up to 8 spare keys ( including the remote starter is counted as a key as well ) . Wish I had more time to hang over his shoulder , but I was in work when He showed up and had to leave there by himself after I gave him the keys . There is absolutely no info manulas or documents online that I can find about these as they are very secretive about the unit ( which I kind of liked to hear ) . He also told me He knows all the little secrets about how to set up and program the unit as well . Hope He doesn't share the info too much lol ...

Sure

www.guidepointsystems.com

$99.00 a year but I am not sure what I paid for the install . They have dealers across the country that install them . Ford dealership put it in as My Wife's honda has one too . Thats why I bought this one . No issues with hers at all since 2007 when it was installed .
