obd2 device Sign In

Hello.
We are working on a new OBD II tracker/scanner. Our device is almost finished but we still have time to add new functions or change some of the existing ones. I want your advice to make it better if it is interesting for you to participate in the process of creating a new device for your car.
Main functions of the device:
- reads engine error codes;
- shows the data from dashboard indicators;
- real-time 24/7 vehicle monitoring;
- location tracking;
- notification when vehicle enters or leaves a geo-fence;
- driver's behavior analysis;
- accident notification;
- 3d reconstruction of the accident;
- mobile application; Which other functions would you find useful? What functions do you think are unnecessary?
I will be thankful for any ideas. Feel free to say what you think.

Who are you building this for? I mean who is your target user?

Owner? Tech?, law enforcement? Insurance companies?

Does this thing plug into the diagnostic connector? How big is it? Some vehicles hide the diagnostic connector behind panels, so the panel might not fit or close with it plugged in.

More aftermarket junk IMO that could break and short out the data bus.





Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

The device is not bigger than an ordinary OBD2 scanner

Thanks for the idea! Do you have a link on a website where I can get more information?

This device is supposed to be used by car owners. We will be glad to cooperate with insurance companies too.

What is the size of an ordinary OBD2 scanner? They come in all different sizes and shapes.

You'll have competition already since they are already being sold.

We work hard to make it as small as possible. Approximate dimensions are 2*3.5*5.3 cm
