Can you tell us the cost of the unit and the installation?

To get it installed, it's $45 at Garber Automotive. Then, people must pay a $75 per month service fee, which includes the monitoring of device. Data is stored in the device then eventually gets to the state if someone fails tests, etc.

We'll have more in-depth reporting on this in a couple weeks.
