Telefónica last week launched Movistar Car, an easy-to-install device and an app that connects the car to make it safer and smarter.

Movistar Car has a registration price of €20 and a monthly fee of €3 (VAT included). Movistar Car, which will be available to all mobile phone users is compatible with petrol cars manufactured from 2004 and diesel cars manufactured from 2005.

Movistar Car features the following functionalities:

Connectivity: The SIM included in the device creates an exclusive 4G Wi-Fi network for the car (with 3GB per month, included in the price), to which up to 5 devices can be connected at the same time to browse without consuming data from the customer's mobile tariff.

Security: in the event of a car crash, Movistar Car automatically calls a platform that triggers the assistance protocol, including the management of the emergency service 112 if necessary.

Car’s condition: allows the customer to schedule maintenance checks and receive alerts related to possible vehicle failures.

Tracking and navigation:  you can locate the vehicle at any time and set up movement alerts, or access the trip history. In addition, the driver will be able to go to the destinations they select or has stored as favourites through the browser included in the application, avoiding difficult or uncomfortable traffic situations.

Savings: offers the driver exclusive offers of fuel, garages, insurance, traffic fines management and more advantages associated with the car and their journeys, thanks to agreements reached with third parties.

Movistar launched the Movistar Car reservation website in December 2018 and has so far received more than 15,000 reservations.
