Vikram Chaudhary from The Financial Express gives a positive nod to DriveMate, our latest IoT connected car technology!
“…DriveMate will warn you if someone is trying to break into your car, it will send you a message if your driver exceeds the speed limit, it would even tell you which all places your car had been driven. DriveMate is more than a car tracker, it also functions as a wallet for storing soft copies of driving licence, insurance, registration and PUC.
Small in size around about two cubic inches, the DriveMate is activated when you plug it into a car’s OBD port (most modern car have this port, generally under the dashboard, near the accelerator and brake pedals). In case you are looking for more features, you can go ahead and buy the DriveMate Max device, for Rs 14,990.
