Suzuki Connect allows you to keep a track of your vehicle at all times thus offering you complete peace-of-mind. With features such as live vehicle tracking, geo-fencing, location sharing, and tow away alert, you can stay updated about the status of your car at all times. The embedded GPS transmitter lets you access the location of your car on your phone and allows you to send real-time and automatic location updates to your emergency contacts.
Emergencies come uninvited and it is important to make sure you are always prepared to deal with one. Suzuki Connect offers emergency assistance that automatically calls for help and provides the exact location if it detects deployment of airbags. In the unfortunate event of any breakdown or if an emergency is detected, it sends an emergency alert to the driver’s family and friends with details about the car’s live situation and location.
