Being a mother of two teenage daughters can be very stressful at times. When you factor in driving, it makes you feel like you have completely lost your sanity. Although my oldest daughter is very responsible, I still can't help but worry a little each time she leaves the house. My younger daughter has been studying her driver's book to get ready for her license this upcoming summer.
Aside from the stress of having teenage drivers and thinking of their safety, I also think about the actual car itself. Is there enough air in the tires? Is the battery holding a strong charge? Is the temperature at a normal level? One of the best things in this day and age is technology. Introducing, Zubie.
What is Zubie, you ask?
Zubie combines a smart device (about the size of a matchbox) that plugs into a standard port in every car* along with a smartphone app that help you get the most from your car. Features such as:
- Family Safety: AlwaysSmart™ location tracking and alerts when family members arrive at home, work or school.
- Problem alerts: Be alerted to car problems before they leave you stranded, such as a Check Engine light or a dying battery.
- Safe Driving: Track and improve your driving, and connect and compete with friends. Monitor and coach teen drivers.
- Trip Coordination: Connect with friends to share locations and simplify coordination on short trips or car-pools.
Know and understand what’s going on under the hood. Zubie helps you keep your car running by giving timely information about your car’s health, and alerting you to potential problems.
- Engine Problems: Be alerted to problem codes reported by your engine, and understand what they mean.
- Check Engine Light: Know exactly why the light is on, and avoid an unnecessary trip to the repair shop.
- Dead Battery: Track battery levels and be alerted to a problem BEFORE a dead battery leaves you stranded.
- Repair Cost & Insight: Know how serious a problem might be, and receive an estimate of likely repair costs before you go to the repair shop.
