Taser Android Lockdown: If You Need To Spend $250 On This Take The Kids Car Away

We’re not so sure how we feel about this first thing it’s really expensive for anything related to Android that doesn’t auto start the car or print money however “Taser” has produced a system called the “Taser Protector” that completely locks down your phone except for emergency calls and some settable numbers that you can store as emergency contacts, perhaps mom and dad, home etc.

Across the pond in the UK it is illegal already to use the phone at all while in motion in a vehicle.  Earlier this year Brent F reported on our own Department of Transportation considering similar laws.  We tend to not agree with such a blanket law, but that’s another story another day.

As for the Taser system, if you want to lock down your child’s phone you’ll get a hardwired dongle that transmits a signal to the phone which will not allow you to use it within 30 feet.  So basically at the entrance to the movie theater, while parked at school, heck in some cases probably in the house.. but heck who’s counting.  If you need that much control over your child’s phone than perhaps the child needs one less thing be it the car or the phone.

One of the good features is that it will track your car if it’s lost or stolen.  Other features include tracking speed, location and if the program and device have been tampered with.

Here’s the kicker boys and girls the device is $249.99 with a $14.95 subscription rate. Parents that rich should have their kids chauffered to school right?
