Cars are, if you think about it, one of the last great frontiers of apps. Compare how almost anything else in your life interacts with your phone, and you’ll notice your car is a bit behind. That’s for a number of reasons, both technological and in terms of safety. But there are some ideas on the way to automate your car, and the DroneMobile is one of them.
Start Your Engines
It’s actually a pretty simple system; download the app, which comes with a little map of your car. Plug the module into your remote starter or your car’s security system. Boot the app, and you’ve got control of your car, no matter how far away you are. You can unlock it from a mile away if you feel like it. But, of course, that’s just the start.
Tracking Your Ride
The DroneMobile module includes a GPS system to give you the precise location of your car at any given time, something of a godsend when you’re trying to remember where you parked. Furthermore, it allows you to, for example, create a “geofence,” so that if your car leaves a certain area, you’re alerted immediately. Handy, for those times when your anti-theft system doesn’t work. Or, more likely, when your car is being towed without your knowledge.
Taking A Ride
In addition to all that, DroneMobile can set you up with speeding alerts, service requests, and other useful stuff for your car. In short, it finally allows you to get everything into one place, so you can stay on top of it: Another way to finally get organized. That said, you will have to subscribe to get up and running; it starts at $50 a year for basic service, but the full boat runs $120.
