    I think you’re mistaken and if you would like to call me up I can set the story right in your mind, because you have no clue about what you’re talking about in this subject. 303-328-5216 I’m sure that won’t happen because you don’t really know the truth, sir!!!. You’v obviously heard second hand fictional information about the relationship between Wonde Proud and Intraphex. As the story is stated above truthfully and accurately, Wonde Proud(Amy made a spelling error) and Intraphex are business partners and several solutions we’ve co-developed. They’ve attended every major show with us from SEMA two years ago and we don’t hide our relationship. It is a strong one and we are one in the same now!!! So please call me me and set me straight, I’m sure I’ll not be hearing from you.

  2. Thanks for the comments and your opinions. As the story stated, nothing has changed except the brand name. Our corporate name has been and still is TATTMAR, LLC. You can check the public records. Our overseas hardware mfg, sees the potential in the USA and as the story says, they have a minority stake in the company. Prodigy One hardware is sold in multiple countries around the world and has been successfully selling in USA for two years now.

    The main product is navigation, with other feature rich products on board, and the ability to add wifi, radar detection and BT. It’s pretty much a computer attached to a touch screen as the input and display device. We add these features to LCD screens in cars, whether its OEM screens or aftermarket screens.

    I think that is simple enough to understand. Also INTRAPHEX stands for INTEgration and FLEXability with a phonic change to the word for certain reasons.

    Sales have been increasing Qtr after Qtr and I’m happy there are people concerned about our well-being!!!!

    Next up more solutions for other cars. If it has an LCD in the dash, we’ll attempt to integrate to it!!!!!

    I’m happy to discuss this openly!!!

  3. Based on their past issues it sounds like Directus went under and their main supplier changed their name rather than pay their debt! I would be surprised if they stay in business for more than a year. OH! Say good bye to the US based outfit, if history tells us anything is that the US office will be closed within the next year.

  4. No offense to Intraphex, but the original name of Directus was better.

    Although neither their brand name or their product names give a customer any idea of what their product actually is.
