What’s a connected car?
The simple answer? A connected car is connected to the internet. The connection is made with a mobile connection, pretty much the same way a mobile phone is connected to the internet.
Convenience and communication
Imagine you’re driving home. A traffic jam appears ahead. Not a problem. You ask your car to find an alternative route. Maybe you ask for cinema times. Or any other question. Perhaps you give your car orders. Your car then takes a quick look around the internet and gives you the answers you need. You don’t need to take your eyes off the road.
Information and insights
Fleet managers benefit too. A connected car gives you its maintenance status, fuel consumption and even tells you the number of kilometers driven. Insights like this make fleet organization run more efficiently than ever. And they make it easy to focus on cost savings.
