Following on from the S series the AVS A4 has also had a recent update.
The A4 now has built in Courier function and built in OEM/MAP which means that it has the potential to work from the factory keyless entry or the remotes provided.
The A4 was the first model in the AVS range to feature the waterproof remote which is the same remote as found with the current S Series.
The main point of difference between the A4 and the S Series is that the A4 has dual Immobilisation where as the S Series has three. The A4 is also laking the built in Shock sensor found with the S4 and S5.
Immobiliser Security Housing?
Well, the AVS does not really have one, this in my opinion is it biggest weakness with the AVS A4. For more details read the AVS Immobiliser post.
Data Battery Back -Up Siren
Whilst the Siren is Battery Back-up (NZSA 4 star requirements only need a standard siren) it really does not offer any added protection due to its need to be accessible to access the over-ride key switch.
AVS A4 RRP:
AVS A4 (With no Sensors) $425.00
AVS A4 (With shock Sensor) 449.00
AVS A4 (With Glass Break) $549.00
AVS A4 (With Microwave) $549.00
AVS A4 (With Ultrasonics) $549.00
Obsessive Rating: Let down by lack of Immobiliser security housing!
The Autowatch 446RiS or RiSGS would probably be a better option!
