The Escort Entourage powered by Blackline GPS is a device designed to monitor a vehicle and track its location. The device creates a security perimeter around the vehicle, notifies the owner by e-mail and text message of any intrusion, and can help recover a stolen vehicle by tracking it with GPS technology.
The device is offered in two versions, the Escort Entourage CIS, which is permanently attached to a vehicle, and the Escort Entourage PS, which is a portable system that can be hidden in a vehicle or in personal possessions.
The CIS version costs $399.95 and the PS version is $349.95. Both require a monthly subscription fee of $14.95 for service. The devices use real-time GPS tracking technology and Google map and Microsoft Earth programs to transmit locations via the Internet and mobile phones. The Escort Entourage works with wireless service throughout the U.S. and Canada,
The product is being offered jointly by Escort, Inc., an Ohio manufacturer of radar and laser detectors, and Blackline GPS of Calgary, Alberta. For information, visit EscortInc.com or blacklinegps.com.
