The VOC system is linked to the car’s SRS and alarm systems as well as other systems (such as locking and climate control). The car has a built-in modem for communication with VOC services.
Once the remote control key has been removed from the car, the system's functions are available continuously for 5 days and then once per hour for the next 17 days. After these 22 days the system will be deactivated until the car is started.
The system utilises GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) to locate the car. The car’s built-in modem is used to communicate with the VOC service centre and the VOC mobile app.
The system only works in areas where VOC's partners have mobile coverage and in the markets where the service is available.
Just as with mobile phones, atmospheric disturbances or sparse transmitter coverage may lead to connection being impossible, e.g. in sparsely populated areas.
A subscription is initiated in connection with the purchase of the car when the system is activated. The subscription has a time limit but can be extended, and validity is market dependent.
