Take Care of Your Car with Your Smartphone
Delphi Vehicle Diagnostics is an innovative new product at Verizon Wireless. This unique gadget puts vital information about your car into the palm of your hand.
Check the health and status of your vehicle using the Delphi Connected Car smartphone app.
Decode a check engine light so you can know what's amiss before calling a mechanic.
Monitor your fuel level and battery voltage.
Locator and Geo-Fencing
Find your parked vehicle quickly and track its location in real-time thanks to Vehicle Diagnostics by Delphi's built-in GPS.
Also, you can create a geo-fence to alert you when your car travels beyond a mileage range you designate on a map.
See Your Driving History
Get insights into your commute with Recent Trips, a running tally of dates, times and distances traveled between points A to Z. It even calculates vehicle idle time.
You can also set optional email alerts for when your car is traveling at speeds over 75 MPH or revs over 4000 RPMs.
Manufacturer Key Fob Controls
If you have a factory-installed keyless entry system in your car, you can now make your smartphone a remote control for your car.
With Delphi, you control functions including unlocking your door, popping the trunk, or remote start.
Delphi Vehicle Diagnostics works over Verizon’s reliable wireless network and costs $249.99.
