Hum has expanded its product lineup. It has been claimed by the company that now driving experiences can be made safer, smarter and more connected by choosing the Hum that’s right for them. For the first time, Hum customers can choose between three options, including the premium HumX service, which includes a brand-new Wi-Fi hot spot capability, premium hardware and a new mobile app.
Interested consumers can purchase it from Verizon Wireless stores starting tomorrow – March 23. The new Hum app can be downloaded from Google Play and the App Store for both current and new customers.
The HumX premium hardware package contains a 4G LTE OBD-II device and a stainless-steel Bluetooth speaker that clips to a car’s visor. The speaker supports HD voice for optimal audio quality and has LED touch icons for contacting Hum customer support functions such as roadside assistance, mechanics’ hotline and emergency assistance.
The HumX Wi-Fi hot spot capability allows up to 10 devices to stream content over the nation’s largest & most reliable 4G LTE network. HumXwill also launch with an enhanced vehicle location feature that allows users to visualize their vehicle moving on a map.
The standard Hum offering, including the core set of Hum features like auto health and diagnostics, driving history, boundary and speed alerts, and vehicle location, will now be known as Hum+. Also launching tomorrow is a free app that allows consumers to access some of Hum’s basic features, or giving them the option of upgrading to either Hum+ or HumX.
All three Hum tiers launching on March 23 will include two brand-new service features:
- Safety Score calculates driving behavior on factors such as braking, cornering, acceleration and phone handling while driving. Safety Score also provides the driver with tips about safe driving.
- Navigation provides turn-by-turn voice-guided directions, search by location name or address, and multiple route options based on estimated trip time and level of traffic congestion.
- Customers can try out the two new features in the brand-new free Hum app, simply called Hum, by downloading the app from Google Play or the App store and creating a free account, which will also provide access to a wide range of retail, dining, service and travel discounts.
