car 300x168 Understanding the Difference Between Smart Car Connection Services

A smart car connection service is an advanced electronic and or microprocessor system that gives a driver more driving control by improving stability, braking, and improving a driver’s comfort when driving a smart car.

In general, there are multiple smart car connection services and each is intended for a particular role. Are you interested in understanding the difference between various smart car connection services? If you are, then this article might be helpful.

What are the different roles played by various smart car connection services?

As earlier noted, various smart car connection services are designed to help you control your vehicle in various ways. For instance, night vision intelligent connection services help drivers to visualize objects beyond a driver’s normal visual range.

Furthermore, some smart connection services improve stability, braking, and some assist you when parking. Additionally, some smart car connection services are used in GPS navigation and for smart card activation systems.

How are smart car services integrated into your car?

Just like a mobile connectivity service, there are several ways through which the smart car services are integrated into your car. Firstly, your car might be tethered to a smart car service using an embedded SIM provided by your car’s manufacturer.

Secondly, you can connect a smart car service to your car using a digital interface powered by a SIM. Unlike the embedded SIM, the digital interface equipped with a SIM lets the drive use a SIM of his or her liking.

Finally, you can opt to integrate your car with a smart car service using a compatible digital display which lets you plug your mobile phone into the system. The mobile compatible digital display enables you to control your vehicle through an application in a mobile gadget.

Where Can You Find Smart Car Connection Services?

Finding the appropriate smart car connection service to your car should not be a problem since there are lots of car manufacturers and technology giants who supply the three types of smart car connection services.

Some of the industry leaders in the smart car connection services sector include Google and Apple. The two tech giants are recognized as industry leaders in the manufacture of smart tethering technology like Apple’s carplay and Google’s Android Auto.

MirrorLink is another top service provider of smart car connection services. Like Google and Apple, MirrorLink provides OS-agnostic, a tethering solution used in conjunction with a MirrorLink compatible smart mobile device to control your car.

If your car uses an embedded SIM service, then you might want to consider services from top providers like Telefonica and AT&T. These are some of the top SIM service providers who offer telematics and fleet management services. The embedded SIM service is the commonly used smart car connection service.

Besides the smart car connection service from Google’s Android Auto, Apple’s carPlay, and MirrorLink, you can also consider other numerous smart services as alternatives. Some of them include the Smart Cross connect app, an infotainment downloaded to your smart phone to let you control your car’s radio function, stream music, find a parking space and to navigate.

Another excellent smart car connection service is the Smartphone Cradle that lets you control your car’s entertainment system from your mobile device.

Does your insurance provider cover smart Car Connection Services?

Ideally, most auto insurance providers offer insurance schemes that cover your smart car connection services. However, since vehicle insurance companies differ depending on the vendor, we recommend that you ask your service provider to clarify if their policies cover your car’s connection services.

Investing in smart car connection services is a wise way to enhance control over your vehicle. This is because the smart services improve your navigation and give you efficient control over your vehicle’s infotainment system. We hope the article helps you choose the right smart car connection service for your vehicle.
