Datacom Wireless Corporation ("Datacom" or "the Company"), (TSX VENTURE:DAT), a Canadian leader in the design, development and marketing of mission critical vehicle fleet management and theft prevention and recovery solutions, is pleased to announce the signing of a partnership agreement entitling La Capitale General Insurance ("La Capitale") to offer the Mobiguard™ program to its car insurance holders. La Capitale is now the third insurance company to join this car theft prevention program.

Under the 24-month agreement, La Capitale will assume a significant share of the cost for its policyholders for obtaining the latest generation Mobiguard™ electronic immobilizer system, while also giving substantial discounts on premiums to clients who purchase Mobiguard™. La Capitale General Insurance is one of Quebec's five leading insurance companies which is placing Mobiguard™ at the core of its vehicle theft reduction strategy.

Datacom and La Capitale have jointly developed an electronic referral system that will allow La Capitale's agents to transmit real-time referrals of policyholders who have been targeted for this program, thus ensuring them with timely and rapid service. Datacom's customer service specialists will contact these customers to help them schedule Mobiguard™ installations at service centres throughout Quebec.

"This agreement with Datacom will now enable us to provide policyholders with a theft prevention solution that stands out from conventional systems. This announcement attests to our commitment to recommend prevention measures to our policyholders for protecting their property and for reducing car theft. We are proud to be able to offer our customers high value-added products and services," said Francois Dumas, Director of actuarial and underwriting services, La Capitale General Insurance.

In addition to offering exclusive theft prevention benefits, Mobiguard™ is easy to use and is compatible with remote starters, with no compromise in efficiency. Equipped with a remote device, the system activates itself automatically and immobilizes a vehicle if the remote device is not activated at the moment of ignition.

"This partnership corresponds with the growth forecasts of our business plan. This new agreement represents a milestone in Datacom's continuing growth and reflects our commitment to provide products with significant market potential," said Pierre Collins, Datacom's President and CEO. More than 15 000 Mobiguard™ systems have been sold during the past 18 months, which confirms consumer confidence in the resilience, quality and performance of our product, all directly related to the fact that its installation leaves no trace," said Mr. Collins.
