Rogers Smart DriveTM is the connected car solution for your family that works with your Share EverythingTM plan. There are two components: the Rogers Smart Drive device, which plugs directly into your car, and an app. The app will collect information from the device and track things like your car’s location and your driving habits, plus provide diagnostic alerts so you can make sure your car stays in good shape. What’s more, Rogers Smart Drive lets you turn your car into a Wi-Fi hotspot and connect up to 5 Wi-Fi-capable devices. The Rogers Smart Drive app will show you how to locate your on-board diagnostics (OBD II) port and how to install the device. Always make sure that your car is turned off when plugging in or removing the Rogers Smart Drive device. You are responsible for ensuring that the device is installed securely and properly. Once the device is installed and your car is turned on, Rogers Smart Drive will start working to collect data from your car quickly – usually within 10 minutes. You can also check out our Quick Start Guide for more info. You can roam with this device and use your plan just like you would at home. However, if you don’t want to be charged for any data used by the device while you’re travelling, you need to turn off your car and completely unplug the device from your OBD II port. Otherwise, the device will use up data by transmitting information to your phone even if you’ve turned off the Wi-Fi function.
With Rogers Smart Drive, you can monitor driving activity, diagnose car trouble and track your car’s location in real time. Plus keep the family entertained with in-car Wi-Fi. Just another way your family can stay connected worry-free with Rogers — all you need is a Share Everything plan plus the Rogers Smart Drive device and app.
