What is VOYO?

The World’s Most Advanced Connected Car Technology

 

We have developed the world's most advanced, aftermarket connected car system. At the core of the VOYO platform is the ability to acquire and utilize the large amounts of complex data produced by modern cars. 

 

The VOYO controller is based on a specialized, high speed data logger that is typically used by auto companies in their development work. 

VOYO connects to the OBD-II port of your car, generally located underneath the dash. Any car built since 1996 has one, and most of VOYO’s Standard Features will be supported in a wide number of cars.

 

For certain models/years of GM, Ford and Toyota, you will have the option to add our remote controlled Relays that increase VOYO's fuel savings and add unique security features. Additional makes/models are planned post Kickstarter. 

 

Depending on the vehicle, you may also have the option to upgrade to our Premium Pack services. See below for more details on VOYO hardware, Standard Features, Premium Pack services and supported vehicles.

 

By the time your VOYO ships, you will be able to download the free VOYO phone App. It will provide you with a whole new digital experience and allow you to collect a wealth of information about your car as well as control its systems. 

 

The App will also guide you through the set up process and confirm that VOYO is correctly installed.  

 

The whole system is plug and play and is connected in under 2 minutes. No tools or automotive experience are required.

I've been using Mojio in my car for almost a year. It helps close the gap between what the vehicle can tell me on board and what I need to know when I'm away from my car. It can't start/stop or lock/unlock, but it's great for showing location and fuel level while away from the vehicle.

 

Also, if there are any diagnostic codes thrown, I receive an alert with a list of possible problems and links to nearby repair facilities.

This technology stuff is getting really awesome!

 

Does Voyo do more or is it similar to what you're using now?

It seems that if you use the wireless relays you can control things such as engine stop/start, door locks, and immobilizer remotely.

 

The downside is it requires your phone for bluetooth to connect to the cloud.

 

My device, the Mojio, has a cellular modem that connects to the cloud without the need for a phone connection.  It does fuel level/consumption, diagnostic codes, avg speed, idle time, harsh braking, heavy acceleration, location, engine/transmission status, and tow alerts. 

 

Keep in mind, many of these devices require a subscription to these services.
