Giveaway and information provided by AT&T.
Have you ever wished your car could do more? I do! Now there’s an aftermarket mobile app that can give your car smart features that give you more control and convenience. Enjoy maintenance, diagnostic, trip, and fuel reports that let you know the health of your car. Plus a locate feature that can help find your car if it’s lost or stolen or you just can’t remember where you parked it.
Audiovox Car Connection 2.0 by AT&T gives you those features and more. It allows you to block texting with the free ZoomSafer app which disables texting while the vehicle is on. You can also designate up to five driver safety zones with text alerts when the car goes outside of that area. These are great features for keeping tabs on teens as well as senior drivers.
It can also provide a driver score to help you discuss your teen or senior’s driving habits. It keeps track of how often they speed, brake excessively or drive aggressively. Share your driver score with your insurance company and you may be eligible for a discount.
This little device also automatically notifies the Car Connection Emergency Response Call Center if it detects that you’ve been in an accident. It relays that information to emergency services for you. You can also ask for emergency services with your smartphone and Bluetooth LE paired device.
But Car Connection 2.0 is more than just an app. It’s also an emergency roadside assistance program that takes care of you should you get a flat tire, run out of gas, need a tow, and more. Assistance is always available with just a phone call.
You can even add an Accessory Kit (sold separately) which gives you the power to remote start your car so the temperature is comfortable when you get in and lock or unlock it with your smartphone from anywhere in the world.
