With the Vehicle Diagnostics module installed in a car, owners can call up this Delphi Web site to check their car's current location and see maintenance and driving alerts.
Vehicle Diagnostics logs and sends alerts for events such as the engine revving above 4,000 or the car leaving a set geo-fence area.
The Vehicle Diagnostics app uses the same basic format as the Web site, making it possible to see car information and location while on the go.
The virtual keyfob lets you unlock the doors, sound the horn, and even start the engine from your phone.
The system logs each trip for the car, including start and end times, locations, and miles driven.
More detailed trip information is available for each entry, and users can even see a map of the start and end locations.
The app shows the same vehicle alerts as the Web site, but neither lets you set custom alerts beyond the geo-fence.
The app shows where the car was last parked, which could be useful for forgetful drivers.
The system lets you set simple, circular geo-fences. When the car is driven outside of this range, it sends and alert to the app and Web site.
