Vehicle Diagnostics By Delphi

Vehicle Diagnostics by Delphi

Description: Delphi’s newly launched Vehicle Diagnostics, a 2013 Popular Mechanics Best in Show from the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), was developed in partnership with Verizon Wireless to provide users with car-to-cloud/cloud-to-car connective services for almost any vehicle manufactured in 1996 or newer. By simply plugging the device into a vehicle’s OBD II port, users have the ability to: • Receive email alerts for select driving and vehicle performance issues • Set up geo-fences and receive email alerts for entry and exit • Locate and access family or businesses vehicles anywhere and anytime without having to tag the vehicle's original location (a feature that can immediately ease the midnight panic attacks surrounding the whereabouts of your young driver) • Use a smartphone, laptop or tablet as a key fob for your car, regardless of where you are, to help when accidentally locked out • Monitor overall vehicle health status • Summarize all trips from engine start to stop (date, times, distance, starting and ending locations) Vehicle Diagnostics by Delphi is giving users, whether their regular carrier is Verizon or not, the power to access the full potential of their vehicles despite the age and factory technological bells and whistles. I’d be happy to set up a conversation between a Delphi and/or Verizon Wireless expert to discuss how Vehicle Diagnostics and future devices will revolutionize how we interact with our vehicles, as well as provide a demo unit for you to try out yourself.
