Ok, Zubie is pretty darn cool. This product comes with a "key" that plugs easily into your diagnostic port on your car (yes you have one, and its easy to find). While plugged in, and synced with an app easily downloaded to your smartphone, Zubie allows you to do many things, with a very small amount of effort from you. While tracking your trips, Zubie can help you become a more efficient and safe driver, and allows you to track not only your trips, but your good (and bad) driving habits, locations of family members cars, and also your engines efficiency, among other things.
I wished I had this Zubie a while ago, when trying to pin point what made my "check engine" light come on. It would have nailed it down immediately to needing a replacement O2 sensor, and I could have saved a trip to the mechanics. There isn't much I like more than saving money, so helping my car to prevent breakdowns and including low-battery alert and simple translations of engine codes make Zubie something that should come standard with every car!!!
I was interested to find out I wasn't as bad of a driver (according to Zubie) as I thought I was. I was anticipating hard breaking, quick accelerating, and speeding to be amongst a few of the flaws in my driving pattern. Surprisingly enough, I didn't rank that bad. Zubie was able to give me a check up on my engine, which is always good to know before things like large road trips, and would be an absolute blessing out on the road.
The idea of being able to plug one into my daughters car, once she is a little older and able to drive, to check up on her whereabouts would really help to set a parents mind at ease.
This is a really cool gadget and it doesn't get in the way, or annoy you like other things that might plug into your car. Safely tucked away out of sight, it's there for you when you need it. The engine diagnostics alone make it worth having around, but to alert you to your driving patterns, so you can drive more efficiently, really make it a product worth purchasing.
