Mavizon AutoBot Monitors Where Your Car is And When You Need an Oil Change
 
 

I don’t typically have any problem recalling where I park my car. That said I once took my kids to see a big NHRA drag race. We got there early to get seats and when we parked, we were already about half a mile from the track. I figured that the track was full and I was wrong.

When I got there about 100 rows of cars were already parked and when we left, there was about a thousand rows of cars. I had no idea where I parked and had to walk up each row hitting the keyless entry button until I heard the car honking. It sucked. If you are the sort that loses your car all the time. you need something like the Mavizon AutoBot in beta now.

The name naturally brings to mind Transformers and will probably be forced to change once Hasbro gets wind of this thing. The AutoBot is a small box that plugs into the ODBII port of your car under the steering wheel and should work with any car 1996 or newer according to the maker. Once plugged in the thing can tell you what errors codes are on your ride making warning lights glow and it will tell you when you need an oil change or other maintenance.

The best part is that the thing is GPS enabled and will dial 911 or other numbers if you are in an accident. The device has GPS to tell the people at the number dialed where you are. You can also use the GPS capability to find your car in a crowded lot. The system has no monthly subscription fees and would work on multiple mobile devices. If your car is ever stolen, the GPS functionality will also allow police to find your car quicker.

You can also use the GPS capability to keep up with kids or employees that are driving your car. An exact price on the AutoBot system is unknown. The maker says that it will be under $300 and it needs no installation, it's a plug in and go product. The system works in the US only at this time.
