ATLANTA, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Speedemissions, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SPMI), a leading vehicle emissions testing and safety inspections company with 38 stores in Atlanta, Houston, St. Louis and Salt Lake City today announced that its newest version of CARbonga, CARbongaBT is now available in the Apple® app store.
The CARbongaBT app along with its new Bluetooth Device, gives drivers an x-ray of their vehicle's emissions and safety codes. In addition to operating the app, this Bluetooth device has driver evaluation, vehicle maintenance and fuel economy provisions. Both the CARbongaBT app and the Bluetooth device can be used on multiple vehicles making it a very low cost way to diagnose your car's emission problem and more.
The device is a plug and play adapter that taps into the vast amounts of information available in today's cars. There are two unique features which make this device different than similar products on the market. First, it captures and stores driving & trip information for over a year using its patent pending technology. Next is the size. It is incredibly compact with a width of 1.8 inches, height of 1.38 inches and depth of just 1 inch, making it an easy install in the OBD (On-board-diagnostic) port of any 1996 or newer car or truck. It allows car owners to see stored data on their personal computer.
Delivery of the product will begin in early 2013 and retail for $69.99. It will be available for purchase at CARbonga.com, Speedemissions.com and in the Speedemissions emission testing stores. The CARbongaBT app sells for $4.99.
Rich Parlontieri, President/CEO stated, "This is a project on which we've been working for quite some time. And one that took a lot of energy, patience and resources. So obviously we're very excited to be able to have this Bluetooth device available to operate our CARbongaBT app and to sell on the open market. Plus, the Bluetooth device offers a significant benefit for parents, who care about keeping their family, especially teenage children and the car they're driving safe. It's a really great 'peace-of-mind' tool when using the CARbongaBT app".
