Do the big car makers have you convinced that to enjoy all the benefits of a “connected” car…you need to run down to the nearest showroom and take the plunge on a brand new vehicle? Vinli wants you to know it’s all hogwash…and that for $99, you can:
“Instantly upgrade any car making it smarter, less expensive, more efficient, safer, and fun.”
Are you an “early adopter”? This aftermarket adapter may one day be swallowed up by the big car makers and built into new cars in the near future. Starting in August (2015) however, it will be available to the general public in the form of a little black box that plugs into your car’s dashboard…for a mere $99.
Why would you want Vinli? The primary reason is that Vinli downloads the On Board Diagnostic System Information (OBD-II) from the vehicle it’s plugged into…and sends that data to a variety of apps on your smartphone…via Bluetooth. Another huge reason…it’s “the only connected-car device” that includes 4G LTE Internet. And as powerful sidekicks to your new found wireless capabilities…a growing variety of apps to help do everything from helping keep your teen drivers safe…to diagnosing car problems before they become problems…to helping follow and track down your vehicle, if it ever gets stolen.
Twenty (20) apps will be plug n play, ready to go, out of the box…when Vinli hits the market in August. Among them, services like:
- eCall – If you’re ever in an accident…notify your loved ones by SMS or Voice.
- My Service Shop – Always forgetting scheduled car maintenance? Your friendly neighborhood mechanic is a click away.
- Roadside Assistance – Dead battery? Flat tire? Out of gas? Lost & need directions? Vinli helps get you back on track.
