Keeping an Eye on Your Precious Things

Tired of having to carry more than one key fob? Sonic Electronix is excited to introduce the future in car security and safety. As an iPhone and smart phone enabled system, Scytek's Galaxy Mobile 500 is everything you will ever need in a security system. This encompassed with the numerous safety and monitoring features, you will have more control than ever before.

The Galaxy Mobile 500's remote start feature will allow you to turn on your vehicle without even having to be inside the car. This is perfect for those days you are running late and want to get your car running while you quickly get ready for the day. This alarm allows you to control your car's security system with your iPhone or any smart phone with the simple push of a button. So if you happen to lock you keys in the car no need to worry you will still have full control thanks to the iPhone and smart phone features. The 2-way monitoring system sends automatic alerts to your smart phone to quickly notify you of any tampering. If you are a parent who is constantly worried about your children when they are out driving, with the Mobile 500 those days will be long gone. With the GPS tracking you can keep a constant up to date watch on the whereabouts of your vehicle. Time curfew violations and speed alerts will ensure that your kids are being safe and responsible drivers. With geo-fencing you can set your own parameters of how far your car should be traveling, once those parameters have been breached a quick alert is sent out to notify you of the violation. The Scytek Mobile 500 is the whole package, sure you can go with a lesser system but is the your safe and those of your loved ones really worth it?

Remote Start Car Alarm

Remote Start

Allows a vehicles engine to activate without physical contact from the user. This feature is useful for warming up your vehicles engine and transmission to operational temperatures. In cold climates you can have your interior hot or in warm climates you can cool it down before use. All of this can be done while in the comfort of your home or office.

Keyless Entry

Keyless Entry

Performs lock and unlock tasks without physical contact with the vehicle. Power door locks can be controlled from several feet away or even within a building using a remote fob. The fob emits a radio frequency that is digitally encoded to prevent frequency stealing so no one can enter into your vehicle without your wireless transmitter.

Dual Zone Shock Sensor

Dual Zone Shock Sensor

This shock sensor utilizes warning chirps for minor disturbances and will trip the alarm if it detects more serious impacts or disruptions. Most dual zone shock sensors have adjustable sensitivity to reduce false alarms or warnings. These sensors let would-be thieves know that your vehicle is equipped with an advanced alarm system and to keep away.

Dedicated Trunk Release

Dedicated Trunk Release

This unit comes with trunk release capability and remote control integration for OEM alarm or add-on trunk release systems. Pop your trunk using your remote transmitter for convenience and ease of use. Carrying a handful of groceries? Arms tied up with luggage? Pop the trunk without using your key so itís open and waiting for you when you arrive.

Latest update

January 2, 2013

The Galaxy Mobile has frequent problems being offline. When offline, you cannot communicate with the vehicle from your mobile device or from scytrak.net. By having this feature be offline, it completely voids the entire purpose of mobility.

Scytek Mobile

November 16, 2012

The Scytek Mobile is an accessory that uses the Galaxy 5000/5100 brain. It simply uses the Scynet port to become mobile. Here are some things to note: - The "newer" Skytrak modules do NOT have a GPS antenna. Despite what the manual says, it does not. The cell antenna works for GPS and cellular transmission. - The mobile website works great on iphone 4/4S. It is terrible on iPhone 5; albeit still usable. - I had to call Scytek to get the mobile portion setup. When I tried to set it up online, it errored saying "Serial Number Already In Use." I'm not sure if Sonic activates them ahead of time forcing customers to call in and getting the year free that way or what. I hope that my unit wasn't a return that somebody already set up. - Once installed, setup, and working, the response time is very fast. The desktop website is quite thorough. It tracks very well and is quick while tracking. You can tell the people creating this website were not strong at English. But, it works. At the end of the day, I can start the car, lock it, check the status, ect from my iPhone 5. It also receives texts when the warn away or car alarm is triggered. So, you essentially have 2 way unlimited distance confirmation. I really like the device and would purchase again.

This alarm system is great. Being able to start my van while still at work 5 miles away, and having it being warm when I get off the train is great. Worth every penny.

Ups and Downs

June 4, 2012

Well, after having this unit for 6 months, there are some ups and downs. First, the remote that comes with the Galaxy 500 is not a two-way remote, it is one-way so if someone breaks into your car, it's not going to ring. I think they do offer a two-way remote but you have to charge it and it seemed like a hassle to me. The alarm is nuts sometimes too, if you have the original key fob, keep it tucked away somewhere, you may need it, the alarm went off at this giant gas station when I was going to Houston and everybody was staring, I couldn't turn the alarm off for 20 minutes, don't lose the OEM fob. The navigation is cool, I can see where my Acura is at just by going to a website. It was HORRIBLE setting up the system so keep their tech support number handy. The car can start by itself, you have to be kind of close to the vehicle for it to work, but it's a nice feature. It locks the doors so you'll still have to unlock the doors and sometimes you have to push it 3 or 4 times for it to unlock. If you lock your keys out of the car, just call a friend you trust, get them on scytrak.net, and they can unlock the car for you at least. It would be nice if the Galaxy Mobile 500 had a backup power source for the alarm, just disconnect the battery and that's it for the alarm, its just too easy to disarm. The antenna kept falling off too, but I bought Molding Tape and that solved that. So overall, there are definitely some flaws but overall I'm happy with the product and would not trade it out for something more expensive.

It works...

April 17, 2012

... and it works pretty well, when you get it working. I had the unit installed and the features worked well with the remote immediately. However, I had some problems with the satellite control features. I signed-up on the site, but couldn't get my vehicle to be recognized. The email support from Scytrak is non-existent. I loathe having to call, wait for a warm body, and be passed around until finding someone who knew what they were doing, so I put it off for a while. When I finally got a knowledgeable warm body on the line, the problem was fixed and the system worked like a charm. I am VERY happy with the system and plan to buy another for my other vehicle. The transmission time from the iPhone app (actually a webpage) is quite short and the tracking feature is cool. Setting up alerts for geolocation and speed are easy and work well. My only complaint is the lack of email or chat support on the website.

nice but a lot of cash spent

March 25, 2012

Awesome feature with the smart phone but this much money on the alarm then additional for a year to use the service. I dont care much for the gps tracking unless my car gets stolen or towed. I had a kill switch added since this does not come with one but you cant even use the smart phone feature unless you pay. I dont mind paying just wish i knew a head of time and i rather someone get a regular 2 way remote because after instalation and alarm you are already a lot of dollars in.
