A new innovative device has been created by Jonathan Cohn called the Dash Car Tracker, which has been designed to enable you to tracker your car and visually see what is going on under bonnet via your iOS or Android device.
The Dash Car Tracker is a Bluetooth low energy device that plugs into your vehicle and wirelessly transmits data to the companion smartphone application. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Dash project and see it in action.
Whilst you are driving the Dash Car Tracker is constantly reading information from your car’s engine computer and sending it to the Dash Car Tracker App for tracking and analysis. Once you have completed your trip the data can be uploaded to the Drivewithdash.com website where you can compare your data with other drivers and Dash users.
“The Dash App (free on iTunes and Google Play) creates a new profile for every car you plug Dash into. When a new car is detected, Dash will automatically configure a profile with the make, model, and year. You’re then ready to track your first trip and monitor your data. Dash uses Bluetooth low energy technology, which preserves battery life and can run even when the App is minimized”
The Dash Car Tracker project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Dash is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Dash Car Tracker become a reality.
