Innovation that will transform your driving experience
Suzuki Connect\: A BackgroundIn today\’s busy lifestyle, where we are always facing a serious lack of time, technology has stepped in and is playing a vital role in easing our lives. When managing between home and office, somehow the health of the car that takes you to places is often neglected. Maruti Suzuki, one of the largest player in the Indian automotive industry, with its innovative thinking has launched just the right product addressing the situation, Suzuki Connect. An advanced telematics solution that can radically enhance the whole experience of owning, driving and maintaining a healthy car.Built using ultra-modern telematics technology, Suzuki Connect is fitted into the engine control unit of your Nexa car, allowing you to access a ton of information about your car from your smartphone. It displays the live status of the vehicle, live tracks on a map, assesses your driving behaviour, and also relays a number of timely alerts for you to take preventive actions.
Collecting Information How it works is pretty simple. You get a little device that gets fitted in your car. Once it is installed, you can access important information about your car from Nexa app, available on both Android and iOS devices. Suzuki Connect can be installed in a Nexa car and the device costs Rs 9,999/- including three-year subscription charges. The device uses a Telematics Control Unit that is constantly sending information to a centralised server and your device via a cellular network.The question that remains is what data can you access? Well, for starters the device allows you to track the vehicle\’s live location, prompts you if the vehicle is being towed, or crossing the set geo-fence and it also helps you track where you have parked your car. Additionally, you can remotely see essential vehicle stats like the fuel level and the odometer reading. It also gives you a live status of whether the seatbelts are being used and what the status of the climate control system is. There are more alerts as well \– over speeding alerts, service reminders \– that can be configured according to how the user wants them. In fact, since the device is constantly monitoring the car's health, it can alert Maruti Suzuki directly if it detects a malfunction and the customer care will contact you and get the problem resolved.One of the crucial aspects that Suzuki Connect really can help with is safety and recovery. In case of an accident where the airbags are deployed, the system will send alerts to up to five pre-set emergency contacts along with your precise location. It also allows you to contact the customer care with a single touch, in an emergency.
Suzuki Connect is also constantly monitoring and collecting data about your driving style. It shows you parameters like how aggressive you are on the accelerator, brakes and gives you a driving score. The smoother your driving is, the better the score.Life is better after seeing what Suzuki Connect is capable of. For starters, it enhances safety. The fact that it will send out a distress signal when it detects a bad accident could actually save lives. The alerts for seatbelts and speeding also prioritizes the safety of the passengers. There\’s no denying the convenience it adds as well. Features like service reminders, vehicle tracking, emergency alerts and fuel reminders just make the ownership experience much more hassle-free. Technology is constantly making our lives simpler and Suzuki Connect is an ideal example for the same.Suzuki Connect could also potentially save you a lot of money. A lot of problems in cars go undetected till something really expensive goes kaput. However, having the system constantly monitoring things and sending word to you when something isn\’t functioning right can save you from bigger repairs later. The fact that it monitors your driving and encourages a smoother style will also boost fuel efficiency, saving you some more money there.If you\’re as excited as we are, you can visit your nearest Nexa showroom or Nexa service to get a hands-on experience or just log on to www.nexaexperience.com/suzuki-connect to get this super cool gadget installed in your Nexa car.
