More about connecting vehicles

can you spot the differences?

Can you spot the differences? And I mean the technical differences (not the colors of course)…

Firstly let tell you some facts:

  1. The Chinese dongle (Ton Won) was in the market 3 years in advance the other 3 pieces.
  2. All of these mount the same chipset: ELM37
  3. What data can these read, depends on which OBDII protocol the firmware is able to read.
  4. None of this connects your car. They read data from the vehicle and send it to a provider by taking advantage of the user data connection (yes, they will not work if the user mobile phone is not connected via Bluetooth to the dongle).

Now that these differences are clear, let’s discuss the pricing.

The Chinese one (Ton Won) is sold to the market at $5,00 per piece (pricing goes down for bulk quantities). We are talking about a one time fee.

All others go from €75,00 to €99,00 per YEAR!

Crazy isn’t it?

But that is not the craziest thing.

Those makers of the most expensive version claim that their products is able to perform tasks such as:

  • Tracking. FALSE! Tracking is done by the user smartphone.
  • Crash detection. FALSE! Also done by relying on the user smartphone accelerometer.
  • bCall or SOS call. FALSE. The signal is sent by the user from its smartphone.
  • Sending vehicle KM and DTC to the dealership. FALSE! Odometer value is not readable through OBD and DTCs are not sent to anywhere if the user is not connected to the Dongle with its smartphone.
  • REALITY

    All these devices need the user’s Smartphone to work. If the driver has Bluetooth off, or if it changes smartphone, or if it isn’t driving his vehicle, all OBD data is lost forever (these devices don’t have internal memory).

    SOLUTIONS?

    We came up with a solution that is much more reliable as the dongle does not need the user smartphone at all. It connects to a small device with a data connection that provides real-time tracking, crash detection, besides dozens of incredible services.

    All details here.

Point of view

blackbox

Dear Mobisat fans,

We just released to all stores Greenbox version 1.3.4.0, available now for PC, Android and Windows Phone (Apple’s version will be published within the week).

What’s new?

  • Bearing. It is the GPS / GNSS directional angle. It is now possible checking the travelling direction of any remote object by a directional arrow appended to all icons on real-time services (such as Where is). Current beta version of the service is in continuous and constant improvement.
  • Network Off. In those circumstances in which the internet connection is lost or unavailable, the Mobile application will not lose your account credentials thus avoiding to having to repeat signing in.

We announce that in the (very) near future, we will release new products and services that we hope will excite our customers as much as ourselves.

We wish our clients a pleasant day.
