Abstract

See full text

A user makes a contract concerning provision of a rescue service with a center in advance. The center sends service contract expiration date information to an in-vehicle information terminal device. A microcomputer of the in-vehicle information terminal device receives and stores the service contract expiration date information that is sent. Then, the microcomputer determines whether an expiration date of the service contract has been passed, every time an ignition switch is turned on. If the expiration date has been passed, the microcomputer sends contract renewal determination information and vehicle ID information to the center. The center determines whether the contract has been renewed based on the vehicle ID information. If the contract has been renewed, the center sends the latest service contract expiration date information to the in-vehicle information terminal device.
