US: AAA to offer telematics services (aftermarket) using Delphi TCU

Delphi announced at its annual Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas, its agreement with Auto Club Enterprises, the nation’s largest AAA affiliate, to produce and market Delphi’s aftermarket telematics “plug-and-play” device to its AAA members.

This new technology will help deliver additional benefits to members, such as convenient mileage verification, remote door unlock, vehicle preventative maintenance and GPS vehicle location enabling faster emergency roadside service.

The Delphi telematics device connects to a diagnostic port most frequently located under the vehicle dashboard enabling wireless communications between Auto Club Enterprises and members.

Delphi telematics technology uniquely positions Auto Club Enterprises as a complete telematics solutions provider to its members, offering a vehicle relationship management experience including services such as:

Enhanced roadside service

Preventative maintenance

Vehicle locator

Remote door unlock

Note: Future initiatives may include systems integration to connect members with nearby AAA Approved Auto Repair (AAR) shops, as well as crash notification.
