Bouncie, a developer of innovative products and applications for the automotive industry, has launched a connected vehicle device that provides drivers with access to valuable data from their vehicle and it promises to make them safer drivers in the process.
Today’s automobiles are computers on wheels, producing large amounts of data that can be difficult to access or understand. With Bouncie, drivers can plug into the power of a connected car and view helpful information such as trip histories, driving habits, vehicle location, and maintenance reminders.
The Bouncie smart-device plugs into the On-Board Diagnostics port (OBD) of a vehicle, through which the smartphone app provides a clean, simple way to view the information it retrieves. Drivers and families can access useful information and features such as:
- Driving Data – Bouncie delivers real-time insights into driving habits. By monitoring key elements such as hard braking events, rapid acceleration, average speed and trip history, parents can guide their teenager to becoming a safer and more reliable driver.
- Vehicle Location – Drivers can view their vehicle’s location at any time. Plus, Bouncie can help parents create driving zones with Geo-Circles that alert them when family members enter or leave a designated area.
- Vehicle Health and Diagnostics – Bouncie constantly keeps track of vehicle health. If anything mechanical ever needs attention, drivers will receive an alert on their smartphone, so they can manage the little things before they become big problems.
- Vehicle information – Bouncie helps manage all the important information about family vehicles in one place and reminds drivers when it’s time to update and renew insurance policies, vehicle registrations, licenses and more.
Bouncie’s smartphone app can manage more than one vehicle in a household and gives a vehicle owner access to important safety features such as roadside assistance and maintenance reminders.
