Want to make sure your teenager is driving safely to the cottage alone for the first time? Setting off on an epic cross-country road trip with the kids and need to keep them entertained? Today, Rogers launched the first solution of its kind in Canada that helps Share Everything™ customers keep their car connected worry-free.
With this new connected car device, Share Everything customers can:
Track their car’s location and set alerts to monitor vehicle speed
Turn their car into a Wi-Fi hotspot
Diagnose car trouble, get maintenance reminders, and be alerted of disturbances, like being hit while parked
Built by ZTE and powered by Mojio’s open platform for connected cars, the Rogers Smart Drive device is compatible with most vehicles built after 1996 and simply plugs into the car’s On Board Diagnostic (OBD-II) port. Customers can purchase the device for $99 on a two-year term and add it to their Share Everything plan for $15/month, plus they get a 1 GB bonus of shareable data for 12 months.
A province-wide state of emergency remains in place in British Columbia with wildfires burning out of control throughout most the province’s Cariboo and Interior regions.
Thousands have been evacuated and the risk of new fires starting throughout the province remains high, with continued hot, dry weather expected with risks of thunderstorms.
Our thoughts are with all those affected by the wild fires.
At Rogers, we are supporting those affected by the fires with a $50,000 donation in support of the Canadian Red Cross’ relief efforts.
We also recognize that this is a crucial time for our customers in evacuated areas to stay in touch with family and friends, which is why we’re waiving domestic voice, text and data overages until July 21.
There’s a quick and easy way to help: you can donate $10 to the Canadian Red Cross relief efforts by texting FIRES to 45678.
