The company claims that the app analyses the user's driving style by accumulating data such as speed, braking behavior, coolant temperature, acceleration and RPM. The customers can also reach out to the customer care or Road Side Assistance using the app in case of emergencies. Also, the app will be useful in scanning, uploading and storing critical vehicle or related official documents. It can also be used to set renewal reminders for the car's insurance and receive ‘over the air’ (OTA) software updates.
