Toronto, Feb. 9, 2005 -- InTouch | motion Inc., North America’s first complete end-to-end mobile data service provider, announced today the launch of its in-vehicle data platform.

Intended to expand on OnStar’s current service offering, InTouch | motion Inc. takes the mobile market to new heights by providing wireless Internet and media content to any vehicle.

InTouch | motion Inc. will enable motorists to experience a variety of security, entertainment, and high speed online services via its integrated touch screen console. In addition to phone services, one-touch emergency, two-way voice communications and GPS capabilities, InTouch | motion delivers a complete range of media products such as news, traffic, e-mail and weather with a simple touch of the screen.

InTouch | motion’s system will not only give users the ability to play their own DVDs, CDs, and MP3 music files, but by utilizing its online content portal, InTouch | motion users will have access to partnership-provided media libraries, containing a growing collection of movies, music, news and games. InTouch | motion’s innovative network connectivity infrastructure allows for media selections to be transferred to any InTouch | motion equipped vehicle.

A wealth of entertainment features, as well as the ability to securely transfer personal files and Internet access for up to 5 passengers via any wireless laptop and/or PDA, round out InTouch | motion’s service offering.

“We are entering an era where online communication and content services are available within a moving vehicle,” says Peer Dischleit, CEO of InTouch | motion Inc. “We believe that not only are we capable of more functionality than OnStar is currently offering, but our entry-level security and emergency package at CDN $19.99 per month, which includes InTouch | motion’s media and communication solutions, is not only affordable and flexible but offers unprecedented functionality for all vehicles.”

“Coupled with our online and emergency voice support infrastructure, InTouch | motion can offer unparalleled service in real-time,” states Renato Fabrizi, COO of InTouch | motion. “Directions, traffic alerts or dispatching roadside assistance can now be handled at a touch of a button. Peace of mind and peace and quiet on long trips while your children watch their favorite movies and your spouse browses the Web on their laptop - what driver wouldn’t want that triple advantage!”

InTouch | motion’s initial service will focus on partnerships within the lucrative automotive markets and intends to be available as an optional service in next year’s car models. Through additional partnerships with consumer electronics manufacturers, a retail product line will also be made available.
