Among the gizmos we’ve just got up close with at CES 2011 is this smart car tool letting you peep the vital diagnostics of your car from your iOS or Android to tell you what’s wrong with your automobile well before you know it. You could even use it to check into Facebook with your automobile. Want to know how to do drive by Facebook check-ins? And when you can get it? Details this way.
Previously called the Autobot, Mavia, developed by Mavizon Technologies is a device that connects to your car. Simply mount it under your dashboard and it’ll use its built-in Internet connection to grab the vital statistics of your car and its compatibility with almost any mobile phone. It promises to make driving safer and your car smarter.
Mavia always connected so you’ll know when your car needs an oil change. In fact it’ll always tell you when something is wrong with your car using Mavia’s diagnostic features.
The Mavia car diagnostic device should be arriving in Summer 2011 at around $300, but its makers will be hoping to scotch that down to the $200 mark. A UK price could not be confirmed yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we get it.
Rest assured UK drivers, it is coming. Talks to bring it to these shores are ongoing. As well as Android and iOS devices, development on Mavia for Windows 7 devices has already begun.
Rather excitingly, an ability to check into Facebook just as you would using Foursquare could soon be a reality, we were told. Fun for drivers,not so fun for those bothered by constant Facebook friend updates.
