Getting a high-tech car is now much cheaper than it used to be.
Instead of buying a new vehicle, start-ups like Voyomotive are introducing apps and accessories that help drivers turn "dumb" vehicles into smart connected cars.
The Voyo system allows users to retrofit cars sold in the U.S. after 1996 — cars that were fitted with an on-board diagnostics II (OBD-II) port — with modern technologies.
In addition to obvious bells and whistles like unlocking a door from your phone, Voyomotive wants to capture the data cars generate to reveal insights about driving habits, performance and maintenance. (This data are usually only available at car service centers.)
