iPhone App

Transform your iPhone into a personal driving companion.


The OttoMobile™ application (OttoMobile Pro) is available for purchase on the App Store and includes a download of one coverage area map (Home Map). Additional coverage area maps are available for purchase separately using “my Maps” within the application itself.


OttoMobile for the iPhone provides a rich visual interface that augments your existing dashboard instrumentation. OttoMobile displays your speed, heading, speed limit and various location-based alerts (where available with a coverage map). The display also shows real-time trip statistics, displaying distance, elapsed time, speed statistics and the idle/rest time.


A trip begins when the OttoMobile application is launched or when the driver manually ends a current trip. The trips are stored on the iPhone and trip information can be recalled and viewed by trip category, either business or personal.The trip reports include a trip map, mileage and other trip statistics, speeding exceptions (where available with a coverage map), and a trip cost based on fuel consumption estimates entered by the driver.


The OttoMobile application also includes an OttoHeartbeat location tracking function. If you have a data plan included with your iPhone service provider, you can configure the OttoMobile application to securely transmit your location periodically to a remote server, which will store up to 10 location points with date-time-heading information. You can send the link of this remote server to friends or family to allow them to track your location, or just as easily, you can clear the location function or turn it off when you require privacy. The main benefit is the peace-of-mind resulting from the knowledge that access to your whereabouts is available at any time and roadside assistance or emergency assistance could be easily dispatched if necessary.


The OttoMobile application can be personalized to your driving requirements. The application’s settings include speed limit tolerances, (i.e. speeding notification at 5% over the speed limit), the number and type of alert notifications, a selection of imperial or metric units for display, and management of your Otto account for maps and the OttoHeartbeat functionality.


OttoMobile provides you with relevant and useful information about the world around you. With more information, you can make better decisions, enjoy an enhanced driving experience, and have greater peace of mind!
