ZTE announced that has developed the new smart adapter CarConnect in cooperation with Deutsche Telekom.
The device now appears in a completely revised version. In addition to faster access to mobile Internet, drivers are offered new functionalities and more security. SmartCar applications are not exclusively found in high-priced new cars for almost two years: The CarConnect adapter opens up practical digital services to many owners of older car models.
With the associated application (app), driving routes can be planned, the vehicle location can be called up and shared, or vehicle-specific data such as battery voltage can be recorded. With the second version the range of vehicles that can use CarConnect has been extended. Truck and bus drivers can now also use 24-volt automotive transport systems to go online. Car drivers connect the adapter as usual via the OBD2 port of their car.
The premium function of CarConnect is the mobile hotspot, which brings fast Wi-Fi into the car, with a 10 GB allowance. The new edition makes surfing the Internet even faster and more stable, thanks to LTE with Cat-4 standard and transfer rates of up to 150 Mbit/s in downloads. 10 devices can now connect to the hotspot at the same time - twice as many as the previous model.
