Delphi, an auto-tech company that creates in-vehicle electronics, has paired with Verizon to bring customers Vehicle Diagnostics by Delphi—a small, easy-to-use device that can remotely monitor and control a car.
The unit lets you remotely monitor your car's health, track your car, and perform any tasks that you could do with the car's key fob (such as remote lock/unlock, and remote start, if you have it)—all from your smartphone.
The device uses Verizon's network to stay constantly connected so you can always see where your car is and what it's doing. Delphi and Verizon haven't announced pricing yet, but they promise that the Vehicle Diagnostics will be "reasonably priced" and available within the next month. —Sarah Jacobsson Purewal
