Mojio has launched a new program and upgraded 4G connected car service specifically designed to help automotive OEMs navigate the imminent shutdown of 3G cellular networks. These shutdowns will impact millions of American drivers and disrupt critical, telematics-based emergency services.
Mojio’s 4G Upgrade Program gives OEMs the ability to purchase vouchers to be exchanged for an 18 month subscription to Motion by Mojio, which includes a plug-and-play 4G LTE telematics device, new automatic crash notification and e911 emergency response service, plus access to a growing range of app-based features that enhance the driving experience. Vouchers can be purchased from Mojio at a one-time cost of $295 per vehicle and distributed digitally to customers impacted by the 3G shutdown.
“We’ve made it easy for automakers to keep their customers connected beyond the 3G sunset,” said Mojio CEO, Kenny Hawk. “Our OEM-grade solution is affordable, ready for deployment and most importantly, provides drivers and passengers with a high-value mix of features, including life-saving emergency services.”
Volkswagen of America is the latest automaker to collaborate with Mojio on a customer-centric response to the 3G sunset. VW is offering Mojio’s new voucher program for certain model year 2014-2016 Car-Net equipped vehicles and is providing certain eligible customers with Motion by Mojio free of charge. Volkswagen customers can learn more about the 3G Sunset by entering their VIN on the 3G sunset information page.
Mojio is also collaborating with Audi of America to provide affected customers with a dealer-installed connected vehicle service called Motion for Audi connect, developed alongside Audi to address certain telematics-based services impacted by the 3G sunset. Audi customers are encouraged to contact their Audi dealer to determine eligibility and schedule the required service.
Motion by Mojio subscribers will also receive access to a growing range of helpful app-based features, including live vehicle trip tracking; vehicle timeline with trip history, driving statistics and RoadScore; nearby fuel station finder with real-time pricing; vehicle diagnostics and safety recall information; Mojio’s latest AI-powered predictive maintenance alerts for battery failure and air filter replacement; and customizable notifications for a range of vehicle health, status and security alerts.
