OttoMobile - An application for your GPS-enabled iPhone smartphone
(BlackBerry app no longer supported)
This product is available and can be purchased online by browsing to the online store at www.myottomobile.com.
OttoMobile uses the GPS receiver on your smartphone to display speed, compass and trip statistics. If you subscribe to a data plan, you can also take advantage of vehicle location tracking that allows you to configure how often to transmit your location to the ottomobile web server. The last 10 positions are maintained on the server to allow anyone that you authorize to locate you to do so. The main benefit is the peace-of-mind resulting from the knowledge that access to your whereabouts is available at any time and road side assistance or emergency assistance could be easily dispatched if necessary.
To further enhance your driving experience, you will receive speeding notifications and other location-based alerts with voice, sound and visual feedback in real-time as you drive about the community. The maps contain community-specific information that include speed limits, school zones, playgrounds, hazardous intersections, wildlife crossing, crosswalks, and photo-enforced (red light camera) intersections. The main benefit is the driving assistance and coaching, making you more aware of your surroundings and reducing your speeding infractions. Ultimately, you will drive smarter and more confidently.
