Find My Car Smarter
Building Success with Bluegiga
A smart solution based on wireless connectivity
(Virtual Press Office
) - Find My Car Smarter is a California based company, developing easy-to-use personal assistance applications compatible with iPhone 4S. The Find My Car application uses GPS location services and Bluetooth Smart Technology to automatically mark your car's parked location and save you valuable time and hassle in searching through a sea of cars.
The Find My Car Smarter system automatically saves your parking location. There is no fidgeting with your phone every time you park. With the Find My Car Smarter system, your iPhone 4S will automatically remember the last place you parked. The only time you have to launch the app is after you have realized that you have lost your car, not before.
The Find My Car Smarter system works by placing a Bluetooth Smart device in your car. When you start your car, the Find My Car Smarter App wirelessly connects to the Bluetooth Smart device. After you have parked your car, your engine and the Bluetooth Smart device,powered by your cigarette lighter, turn off. The App realizes that your car is parked and then activates the GPS on your iPhone momentarily to save your car's location. If you lose your car, simply launch the app and it will help you navigate your way back by showing you your current location and the location of where you last parked your car.
"I highly recommend it to anyone who regularly parks in a large parking lot. It's so convenient. You only have to set it up once and then you can forgetabout it", says Kelly Hodgkins of TUAW.
A complete Bluetooth Low Energy solution from Bluegiga
The decision to choose Bluegiga was driven by its readily available Bluetooth Smart offering and the Bluegiga BLED112 with its Bluetooth Smart stack and software development kit was easy to work with. This enabled Find My Car Smarter to create our application within a matter of weeks. Since the BLED112 is FCC and Bluetooth SIG qualified this saved us a great deal of time and expense in getting our application to market. This allowed us to be the first to market with a Bluetooth Smart application for the iPhone 4S.
Fast responsiveness and knowledgeable product support
Bluegiga's supported us all the way, responding to our questions quickly – and in today's day and age it is refreshing to have a company support their customers in the way Bluegiga has for Find My Car Smarter. Bluegiga's deserves its strong reputation in providing high quality, robustness, and highly interoperable devices and Find My Car Smarter would highly recommend Bluegiga as a partner for other companies wanting to create their own Bluetooth enabled wireless device.
