Nonda presents a complete kit to enhance the capabilities of an old car. Compromise of six devices connected to an application, it is usual, this is the kit on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform. The project is already funded, and the Californian manufacturer is not at his first attempt, so much so that it is neither more nor less than a pre-order, ZUS Connected Car System.
ZUS Connected Car System
Especially since the kit includes the connected market of the end of last year and the pressure of the market for a few months.
The most interesting element is undoubtedly the reversing camera, which is fixed under the license plate. Powered by two removable batteries, it has a field of view of 170 ° and has infrared diodes for night vision. The “Vehicle Health” is a more traditional product, a small box plugging into the OBD-II diagnostic port, and retrieving most of the data produced by the car.
The last two accessories are more anecdotal, but no less useless: a Bluetooth keychain, and a remote control deporting the controls of the music system. The various accessories are available individually or in the form of packs corresponding to different needs, or all together in a complete package offered at a price of $ 299 (about 252 €) for a few days.
If you are interested in the connected charger, which we tested at the beginning of the year, or by other devices, this Indiegogo project is an opportunity to save shipping costs. Nonda’s products are not always available from French resellers, so they have to be brought from the United States. On Indiegogo however, international delivery is offered.
ZUS Connected Car System TRANSFORM HIS iNTO VEHICLE
While connected cars are today at the forefront of the automotive industry, the majority of vehicles in circulation do not have such features. Hence the niche that the Californian startup has become.
The first of these, the most charged, remains the most efficient (and most popular): Once plugged into the cigarette lighter, it can charge up to two more devices at the same time than speed. The small device also serves the purpose, to a glance in the dedicated app, the location where one parked or to know the state of the battery of the vehicle.
To modernize their vehicles with the Nonda range, the motor drivers can also use the smartphone holder that connects directly to the vehicle audio system, the rear detector integrated in the license plate, which adds help to maneuvers back to recurrent in the new models – it is displayed here in the app – or tiny sensors.
