The NXM platform includes a powerful automotive router that keeps people connected on the road, and through mobile apps, helping to save money and keep track of vehicle performance and location. Features include maintenance reminders, preventive notifications, scheduling and booking service appointments.
The platform will provide on-demand, unlimited high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity, powered by the Sprint LTE network that’s ready for even faster speeds and more capacity when Sprint 5G service begins in the first half of 2019. Drivers and passengers can connect their favorite devices in their vehicle and choose to order cellular broadband by the day, week or month without relying on their smartphone plan.
Smart parental controls, anti-theft, roadside assistance and collision detection features help keep families safe. The platform also makes it easy to find nearby parking and low-cost gas, plus keep track of driving expenses. Multiple family vehicles can also connect to each other allowing family members new ways to communicate.
The platform will be available starting this fall at leading automotive dealers nationwide.
