CarLock upgrades its devices to 4G LTE Technology

ANNOUNCEMENT: CarLock transitions to 4G devices for US customers in July 2021 

With global advances in mobile technology and faster connectivity, CarLock wants to keep its position as one of the market leaders in after-market car security devices.
