VIPER GOES PINK! KEEP WARM THIS WINTER WITH THE VIPER RESPONDER LE SPECIAL
EDITION VEHICLE SECURITY & REMOTE START SYSTEM
VISTA, Calif., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Directed Electronics, a wholly-owned subsidiary of DEI Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: DEIX), has joined the fight against breast cancer with the availability of Responder LE Special Edition 2-Way Vehicle Security & Remote Start systems from Viper, supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure. For each pink Responder LE sold, Directed will donate $14. The company has made a donation of more than $50,000 to date.
Responder LE is the most advanced and user-friendly vehicle security and remote start system in Directed's history. The owner is able to start the vehicle's engine with the push of a button from up to 2,000 feet away and receive confirmation on the remote that the vehicle has started and is either warming up (in the winter) or cooling down (in the summer). The 2-Way remote will also make an audible tone if the system's siren is sounding within range of the remote, alerting the user to a possible break-in attempt.
Viper Responder LE was recognized with a prestigious Best of Innovations Award at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), one of Directed's eight Innovations Awards. The award reflects the company's #1 market share position in aftermarket Vehicle Security & Remote Start. These are Directed's thinnest and most advanced 2-Way remote controls ever, with an ergonomic patent pending industrial design, made to fit the user's hand comfortably, enabling effortless and intuitive single-handed operation.
Other key aspects of the Responder LE remote are the GhostLights(TM) that enable 2-Way operation of the pink remote, confirming that commands sent to the vehicle have been received. These GhostLights are LED indicators concealed in the bezel, which can only be seen when illuminated. Each Responder LE Special Edition system comes with two pink remotes: one 2-Way transceiver and an identical 1-Way transmitter.
Responder LE Special Edition systems supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure are available at http://www.viper.com and at Viper retailers in North America with an MSRP of $479. For more information and a store locator, please visit http://www.viper.com

Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize the science to find the cures.
