Viva is introducing connected car services powered by Vinli. The hi-tech device turns any car into a connected smart car within seconds of installation. It enables on-board entertainment with a 4G Wi-Fi connection. Vinli by Viva also assists with safety, security, and car diagnostics. Vinli comes with an embedded SIM Card. Using this SIM Card, Vinli can act as a Wi-Fi Hotspot to provide in-car Wi-Fi. Using the embedded sensors, Vinli can detect a crash and immediately notify the pre-defined contacts via SMS. Using the GPS module, Vinli will list nearby maintenance and roadside assistance shops in case of a flat tire or dead battery. Vinli will show the maintenance milestones and provide detailed information on the health of the car.
