Join Us for a Sprint M2M Twitter Party on 9/4 at 6:00 PM PST #DriveSafe
If you follow my blog, you know how much I love Twitter Parties! You also know how important it is to me that we keep our family, friends and those around us safe while we’re driving. How do we do that? We don’t text and drive! Well, Sprint has come up with a fabulous device (OBD2) that disables text messaging while you’re driving. Pretty cool, right?
Now that I’ve piqued your interest, you are probably wondering how it works, right? It’s simple really. You plug the device into a spot under your dashboard called OBD (onboard diagnostics). This sounds complicated but it’s just as easy as plugging into your cigarette lighter. The device then sends you information on how your vehicle is being driven. For example, you can get alerts if there is excessive speed (you define what excess is in your settings) or outside a given boundary. You can also disable text messaging while the car is being driven. The OBD2 device can be used as long as you feel it’s necessary. With a subscription, the device sends you, the vehicle owner, feedback about how your vehicle is being driven. This is really useful with newer drivers or caretakers (aka nannies) where you can’t be in the car with them, but you want everyone you love to be safe in the car.
Sprint has various products for insurance companies, such as the OBD2 device. In fact, every car made from 1996 until today has an OBD plug in site. OBD stands for On Board Diagnostics. This spot is where mechanics plug into your vehicle to obtain diagnostic information. For years, fleet managers have used OBD2 devices to keep track of their vehicles and now we, the general public, have the opportunity to learn more about how helpful these devices can be in our lives.
Now that you know a little about the device that makes driving safer, I’m excited to invite you to our Sprint M2M #DriveSafe Twitter Party on Wednesday, September 4th at 6:00 PM PST! We will be giving away 3 $25 Amazon Gift Cards during the Twitter Party!!!
