VERDICT

Aside from its aforementioned awards, it also makes you feel safer when you drive.

You may have heard about GPS tracking systems, but do not really know how they work. Typically, a GPS tracking system uses the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) network, which incorporates a range of satellites that utilize microwave signals.

These signals are then transmitted to GPS devices to provide information on vehicle speed, location, direction and time. As a result, a GPS tracking system can possibly give both real-time and historical navigational data on any kind of journey. Looks helpful, right? Thus, if you want that kind of help, the Vyncs Connected Car OBD Link is a great product to begin with.

Pros

The Vyncs Connected Car OBD Link is powered by Agnik’s patented connected car technology. One of its achievements was winning the 2016 Fleet Logistics Tech Outlook Top 10 Fleet Management Solution Provider.

It is also among CIO Review’s 2015 20 Most Promising Automotive Technology Solution Providers. Further, it’s got the 2010 Frost and Sullivan Enabling Technology of the Year Award in terms of Commercial Vehicle Telematics. Plenty of awards, right?

And what is really good about this product is that it makes you feel safer to own and drive a car. Having this is also a lot less expensive. All you need to do is plug the 3G wireless Vyncs Link into the OBD-II port of your car and create an account. After that, you are good to go! And perhaps unlike most similar products, Vyncs has no monthly fee, activation fee, automated billing or contract.

What’s more is that it provides a one-year and 24/7 service and 3G data plan throughout Canada and the USA. You also get to pay the same amount for renewal after the first year.

Other details include the ability to save a one-year history, provide zone departure and arrival notifications and offer optional roadside assistance like free towing, for instance, in the USA. It also comes with assistance for stolen vehicle recovery and OBD diagnostics such as check engine light, battery health, and fault code.

It also provides information about fuel economy, as well as fuel level reporting. Moreover, you are allowed to check if you failed or passed the emission test as well and receive maintenance reminders, car OEM recall notifications, and driver scoring. And for teens, it provides feedback regarding unsafe driving to keep young drivers safe.

Cons

Some customers are not comfortable in sharing their private information; thus, they can’t activate their account since it requires personal information like name, birthday, gender, address, phone number, driver’s license number, and others. Moreover, you may also have to give your car model, odometer and number of the vehicle you are installing the product in. Also, the account is not optional.

Generally, users do not find the product’s appearance as appealing and worth the price. And with the product’s website, it takes one hour to register your account by e-mail activation, which other users find a bit long.

Verdict

Despite some issues with sharing your private information, the product’s appearance and website performance, the Vyncs Connected Car OBD Link is still recommendable. Plus, it is easy to operate.

Just plug the 3G wireless Vyncs Link into the OBD-II port of the vehicle, make an account and you are good to go. What’s more is that it comes with zone departure and arrival notifications as well as optional roadside assistance such as free towing in the USA.

Its one-year and 247/7 service, plus 3G data plan are also a thumbs-up because you pay the exact same amount for renewing the two after the first year. And, they are available in both USA and Canada. Moreover, the product does not require any monthly fee, contract, automated billing nor activation fee.
