Jio’s foray into the automobile telematics sector with a Car Connect device will also make it among the first telecom companies in India to venture into this segment. The Jio Car Connect On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) device will offer comprehensive connectivity to the car. Once the OBD device is attached to a car, it will gain access to important information regarding the vehicle. The device will function through a Jio SIM card, which will be inserted into it. On activation of data, this device will function as a hotspot, thereby letting users connect their smart phones as well.

The OBD device may be used with the Jio Car Connect app. It will enable users to receive important information about their cars like the battery, fuel, and temperature, besides other things. Users will also receive alerts regarding speed, fuel levels, and harsh brakes. Other alerts that the device is capable of sending include door alerts and even panic alerts. Door alerts will indicate users in case their vehicle’s doors are open. The OBD even has the ability to control the air conditioning system in a car. Moreover, it can record driving patterns to alert owners in case of unsafe driving patterns.

The Jio Car Connect OBD device is currently being tested before being launched for the masses. The device will most likely be launched only after the roll out of Jio DTH service and JioFiber broadband facility. JioFiber services are also being tested for their performance in various cities across India. With regard to Jio’s data service, customers are currently enjoying free Internet facilities under the Jio Happy New Year Offer valid until 31st March 2017.
