Automotive Apps

The mobile phone industry has become life-changing. Smartphones have changed the way we think, the way we plan (or don't plan) and certainly what we do when we are in our vehicles in route or stopped at an intersection.

Whether you need turn-by-turn directions, a map or the cheapest gas in the area, it can all be accomplished on your phone. Performance testing, of course, is easy with the right app. And now you can also use your phone to diagnose problems. Popular Mechanic has an article featuring "10 Diagnostic Apps and Devices to Make You a Better Driver" utilizing OBD-II apps and devices. Or simply head on over to PLX Device to see what automobile devices they have available.
