CruiseConnect from U.S. Cellular Keeps Families Connected
U.S. Cellular’s CruiseConnect is keeping families and businesses safe and connected while they’re on the go. Parents can use CruiseConnect, a vehicle connectivity device, to monitor driving habits and promote safe behaviors with their new teenage drivers. They can track the location of their vehicles at all times, create virtual boundaries to know that their teenage child arrived safely at school or has left and is on the way back home, and will know how many unsafe driving events such as speeding or texting while driving occur on each trip.
Parents receive alerts on their smartphone from CruiseConnect if there is a critical vehicle issue, if a vehicle is low on fuel, and if a vehicle has a manufacturer recall. In addition to teenagers, families can keep an eye on the location, driving behavior, and vehicle health of their aging parents and grandparents. The in-vehicle device is easy to install, and the app is intuitive and easy to use from any smartphone or tablet.
