Telecom major Reliance Jio has introduced a new OBD (on-board diagnostics) device — JioMotive– that can transform any car into a smart vehicle. This pocket-size device is easy to install and simply needs to be plugged into the car’s OBD port, commonly found under the dashboard. By using an e-SIM, the device connects to the Jio network, eliminating the need for a separate SIM card or data plan.
Jio OBD Device price:
Interested buyers can purchase the JioMotive device for Rs 4,999 from Reliance Digital’s website, as well as popular e-commerce platforms like Amazon and JioMart. The service is subscription-based and is being offered as free for the first year. From the second year, you will be charged Rs 599 as an annual fee for the service. The service works only with a Jio SIM card.
The JioMotive device comes with a range of key features that enhance the overall car experience. One such feature is real-time vehicle tracking, which allows users to monitor their car’s location at any time, even when they are not present. This feature can be particularly useful for ensuring the safety of loved ones and preventing theft.
Another notable feature is geo-fencing, which enables users to set up virtual boundaries on a map. When the car enters or exits these boundaries, users receive instant alerts, providing an additional layer of security and peace of mind.
Speed, Break alert:
Additionally, the JioMotive device collects valuable data on various driving parameters, including speed, rapid acceleration, and aggressive braking. This data can be utilized to improve driving habits, reduce fuel consumption, and identify potential issues with the vehicle.
Monitor Car’s Health:
Furthermore, the device offers remote diagnostics, allowing users to monitor their car’s health and performance from a distance. By alerting users to potential problems before they escalate, JioMotive helps reduce maintenance costs and prolongs the lifespan of the vehicle.
