If you’re the parent of a teenage driver, you’re in a constant state of anxiety whenever they get behind the wheel, especially when they’re just getting started.

Add in the new concern of distracted driving because of smartphones and your anxiety heightens not to mention the concern over basic care and maintenance of the vehicle.

That’s where Car Connection from Audiovox comes in. It’s a complete system for monitoring vehicle health, location and usage with a side of smartphone restriction technology.

You can monitor fuel consumption, maintenance alerts and know when the vehicle goes out of your pre-set safety zones.

It also allows you to provide coaching to your new driver based on the data that shows driving habits.

The system works on all cars 1996 or newer by plugging a small device into the port your mechanic uses to get error codes and loading the smartphone app.

It’s also worth considering if your business has a fleet of company vehicles that you’d like better data on.

This type of tracking and monitoring may not be for everyone, but if you’re looking for something to give you some peace of mind, give this system a look.
