The LokaTAG device integrates directly into your car

KUALA LUMPUR: Tired of searching around for your smartcard reader each time you come to a toll plaza? How about installing one permanently in your car?

Lokatech Engineering Sdn Bhd, in collaboration with Austrian company Efkon, is offering a built-in toll reader for your vehicle as an aftermarket solution.

Priced at RM499, the LokaTAG is directly integrated into your car, and powered by your car battery.

The device follows in the heels of the company’s portable MaxTAG, which was launched last year.

“Market response to the portable MaxTAG has been excellent, with average monthly sales of about 12,000 units.

“As for our built-in toll readers, we currently have five major car brands featuring our customised products with more coming on board soon.

“The combined total monthly sales of the portable and built-in units are about 25,000 units,” said Efkon Asia Sdn Bhd director Helmuth Blasch.

Lokatech Engineering is targetting sales of about 1,000 units per month for the new device.
