OttoMobile™ is an application for GPS-enabled iPhones that is designed to be used while driving. It features:
• Alerts for speeding, school zone and playground areas, crosswalks, hazardous intersections, wildlife crossings and even red-light camera controlled intersection locations (where map coverage is available).
• Trip logging with real-time trip information, post trip statistics including trip mileage, and trip trace routes on a map.
• OttoHeartbeat real-time location tracking that sends your location to a secure website, where your family and friends can keep track of your whereabouts (10 trip positions maintained).
The benefits include:
• Increased driver awareness, providing greater focus and relaxation.
• Assistance for inexperienced and novice drivers, improving their driving habits.
• Assistance for drivers in unfamiliar cities and surrounding.
• Trip tracking and mileage expense reporting.
• Potential savings from speeding violations and red light camera infractions.
OttoMobile will assist you in driving safer and smarter by reminding you when you exceed the speed limit and by alerting you to potentially hazardous areas.
Attach your smartphone with an appropriate mount near your dashboard, launch the OttoMobile application, and experience a new sense of driving confidence.
With your OttoMobile at your side, you can continue to use your phone safely by taking calls via Bluetooth or by speakerphone or you can continue playing music, knowing that your companion is there to assist you!
