Mavia is a small box (see picture left) that plugs into your vehicle’s ODB-II port. For you non-automotive guys and gals like us, that’s the connector used by technicians to check on the car when there’s a problem. The Mavia combines readouts from this port with its own internal GPS receiver to provide location and technical information that is sent back to an online hub at www.mymavia.com. Of course, there’s an app for this for Android and iPhone where information can be downloaded too.
The MyMavia hub will show plenty of data – gas mileage, distance to next service, any diagnostic error codes, interpret some of the diagnostic codes, enables the owner to consult other resources to problem shoot. MyMavia incorporates location services too, showing where the vehicle is on Google Maps. Sure, why not! Let’s throw in some connections to social sites like Foursquare while we’re at it. The Mavia is in a beta testing phase so pricing is not confirmed but is expected to be around $200. The device will be available from retail outlets later in the year and requires no special fitting; it’s a self-install.
