Maruti Suzuki utilizes their market cap in a very positive manner and is at the forefront of many technological and safety initiatives that take place in the mass market. One such technological change India is connected cars via Telematics solutions – the ‘Suzuki Connect’ Telematics.
How to use Suzuki Connect?
The Suzuki Connect telematics system is available to customers as an option which can be installed in their cars across Nexa network in the country. Once installed, customers can download the Nexa app available both for iOS and Android and connect with the smartphone. The customers then get an access to features like emergency alerts, vehicle tracking, driving behaviour analysis, car assistance, driving analytics, live vehicle status along with preventive maintenance calls and more.
More secure than other OBD devices
Unlike the other OBD (On-board diagnostics) based telematics solutions, it is a TCU based solution which is better, safer and more user-friendly. It essentially means that the Suzuki Connect is ‘deeply embedded’ and is difficult to tamper with, providing greater security to customers. Maruti Suzuki’s system utilizes a Telematics Control Unit (TCU), which exchanges information through a cellular network with a centralised server connected to NEXA customer care, subject to applicable terms and conditions of the NEXA app.
The Suzuki Connect can be used for live tracking.
