ZTE Secures Partnerships With All Three Major Canadian Wireless Carriers For ZTE Connected Car Device

You’ll recall that I recently reviewed ZTE’s Connected Car device under the Rogers Smart Drive name. ZTE has since announced that they’ve secured a deal with Bell for them to carry the device under the Bell Connected Car name. Rogers and Bell join Telus in carrying the ZTE Connected Car device which means that 90% of Canadians now have access to it.

In case you need a quick refresher on what this device does, here’s a quick rundown. The connected car device, built by ZTE, is compatible with most vehicles built after 1996. and simply plugs into the car’s On-Board Diagnostic (OBD-II) port. After downloading the Android or iOS app, powered by Mojio, for their wireless carrier’s connected car service and completing the easy setup, customers can access a range of valuable features, including:

  • Vehicle Diagnostics: diagnose and understand engine problems, easily check the fuel level and monitor the car’s battery health.
  • Location Tracking: track connected vehicles in real-time via GPS and use geofences to get notifications when a car enters or exits common locations like home, office or school.
  • Smart Security: get immediate push notifications when a car’s ignition is started, when the OBD-II device has been removed from the car’s port, or if the parked car has been bumped.
  • Wi-Fi Hotspot: keep passengers connected on up to 5 mobile devices with a 4G LTE in-car Wi-Fi hotspot that doesn’t drain a smartphone battery.

To see how it performs, take a look at my review and I should mention that since that review, an app update on the iOS platform has really allowed this platform to up its game.
