01 / ACCURATE
Smartphone GPS/sensor (aka "ground truth") methods show greater than 98% correlation between the vehicle distance ranges and speed profiles of OBDII telematics, which rely on a connection to your vehicle's Engine Control Unit (ECU).
02 / SECURE
Any vehicle with an OBDII reader or telematics device plugged into it is vulnerable to attack, manipulation, and potentially damage of internal sensors and driver controls. Our smartphone-based telematics eliminates this critical safety and security concern.
03 / INEXPENSIVE
Because we utilize the smartphone already in your pocket instead of expensive hardware installed in your vehicle, we offer comparable data accuracy and finer granularity than most traditional telematics providers, for a fraction of the cost.
