News MetroPCS Announces MetroSMART Ride™

MetroPCS Moves Forward as the only Prepaid Brand with Comprehensive Connected Car Solution — MetroSMART Ride™

Check engine light on? Lock your keys in your car? Need a jump? MetroPCS (NASDAQ: TMUS) is the only prepaid brand to drive these types of worries away with MetroSMART Ride™, a comprehensive connected car solution launching today. The Internet of Things (IoT) device combined with a helpful mobile app gives you peace of mind through safety and security features, vehicle diagnostics, and an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot.

MetroSMART Ride™ helps you:

  • Keep your car running smoothly: Car trouble alerts, recall information, fuel levels, battery life, and more are sent straight to your phone. 
  • Take care of roadside problems: Roadside Assistance from Allstate Motor Club® helps with everything from lock outs, to jumps, to tows.
  • Locate your car or loved ones: GPS tracking lets you quickly and easily locate your car, or monitor your family’s whereabouts. 
  • Know what happens to your car when you’re not around: Get disturbance notifications if your parked car gets hit or towed.
  • Keep new drivers safe: Monitor new drivers with smart driving analytics, plus set speed and geo-fencing thresholds. Review trips taken, speed, harsh braking frequency, idling and more.
  • Stay connected on the go: Use the in-car 4G LTE Wi-Fi (2GB) as a dedicated Wi-Fi source when traveling or when you need it on the go.
     

For a limited time, customers can get the MetroSMART Ride™ device for free* when they add MetroSMART Ride service to a new or existing account. Customers on all rate plans can add the service for only $10 per month. The plan includes 2GB Hotspot with 4G LTE Wi-Fi data and unlimited data for diagnostics.

Once you’ve purchased, just plug MetroSMART Ride™ into your car’s OBD-II (on-board diagnostics) port – standard on most cars built after 1996. You can manage the device right from your smartphone and cruise around knowing it’s always on, and doesn’t require charging.

As the first comprehensive connected car solution from MetroPCS, it was important to use best-in-class partners to develop MetroSMART Ride™. That’s why MetroSMART Ride™ is powered by Mojio, the leading connected car technology platform for mobile network operators.

MetroSMART Ride™ is available today at MetroPCS retail locations. To learn more, please click here.
