With Mojio’s open platform and AT&T’s expansive mobile network, the reality of the connected car is now accessible to everyone
September 23, 2014 – (Vancouver, BC): Mojio today announced it will enable cars manufactured after 1996 to become connected cars via AT&T’s wireless network.
The Mojio solution is a cellular device that plugs into any car’s onboard diagnostic port – a port present in most cars manufactured after 1996. With AT&T’s wireless network connectivity, car owners will be able to locate, monitor and diagnose their car from their iOS or Android smartphone.
Unlike other after-market connected car devices, Mojio is built on an open platform that supports an ecosystem where developers can focus on continually improving the driver experience by creating apps that run on Mojio’s platform. “The possibilities are endless,” says Jay Giraud, CEO of Mojio. “With 20,000 codes and hundreds of sensors, cars are basically our biggest mobile device. Mojio’s open platform offers valuable functionality for just about every driver with a device that anyone can install in seconds and an app on your phone.”
The Mojio device can be used to connect cars that are already on the road, providing a customized driver experience that will mirror the highly personalized relationships people have with their smartphones. With its core app, Mojio makes driving more intelligent, while keeping driver safety and convenience top of mind.
Third party apps currently in development include parking payments, automated trip expensing, simplified car rental, home automation connections, and much more.
“We see potential in connecting cars already on the road. By providing connectivity to the Mojio solution, customers will be able to get diagnostic services plus other applications only starting to roll out in vehicles today,” says Chris Penrose, Senior Vice President of the Emerging Devices Organization. “This device is appealing to not only consumers but also fleet managers. We’re excited about the addition of Mojio to our connected car portfolio.”
“Having AT&T as our US based carrier is a huge milestone for us,” said Giraud, “Not only does it have an extremely powerful network, our interests are aligned in leading the connected car space.” AT&T has the nation’s most reliable 4G LTE network and is a leading provider of wireless services to millions of customers.
Mojio will be available in the US in time for the holiday season. The device will be offered for $149 which includes the first year of service and can be ordered at www.moj.io. Second year of service will be $4.99 per month.
Mojio is reinventing driving by keeping drivers connected to their favorite people, places and things providing accurate, real time information about cars when it is needed most. As a cloud-connected device for the car and an app for the smartphone, Mojio improves the driving experience by automating tasks, bringing intelligent solutions to the driver and protecting their investment. Mojio’s open platform makes it easy for third party developers and partners to create apps that connect drivers with the products and services they want and need.
