There are a lot of advantages to participating in the OReGO test drive. Not only are you helping to test out a first-in-the-nation pay by mile program, but you are helping pioneer the future of road and bridge maintenance in Oregon. But what about for you? Well, one of our account managers, Azuga, offers some cool new features free to OReGO participants.
You can get an overview in Tom Fuller’s new video.
Here’s what’s new in a nutshell:
Safe Zones – allow you to set a boundary on a map. Then when your vehicle leaves or enters that space, an email is sent to whomever you want. So let’s say you want to let your significant other know when you’ve left the office in case there’s something needed at the grocery store? Put a safe zone around the office and when you leave, they get an email. Parents could use this to put a safe zone around school to make sure their kids get there safely. The uses are endless and totally under your control.
Battery Voltage – shows you the condition of your battery. As your battery ages its voltage drops. Below a certain range and it’s time to replace it. It could also show you if there is a problem with your charging system if suddenly the voltage drops.
Engine Health – so I think this is really cool. Have you ever had your “Check Engine” light come on? I know I have in my F-150. I have no idea what it means and how serious or minor the problem might be. This feature alerts you to a check engine light and gives you the diagnostic code.
Don’t forget about driving scores, badges, trip logs including cost and events (like hard braking or acceleration). For me, I’ve actually witnessed my driving improve. I noticed that I was braking hard at times and when I looked up the locations I realized I hadn’t anticipated some stops. Gentler braking and acceleration not only makes you a safer driver, it also saves gas and wear and tear on your vehicle.
You get all these features for free by volunteering for OReGO. So why not check out our vendors, choose the one that’s right for you and sign up!
