Maruti Launches TCU

Owners of Maruti’s Baleno, Ciaz and other Nexa cars can now monitor information related to their cars through the NEXA App which is available on Android and iOS. Maruti Suzuki has just launched a Telematics Solution for their Premium NEXA range of cars.

What is this?

This technology is something similar to what GPS tracking Services like Map my India and AutoCop provide albeit its manufacturer backed and has no warranty issues and you don’t have to run to pesky Automotive accessories shops to get it installed. This device connects to your vehicles ECU and works over the cellular network to provide you with real-time information about your car via the NEXA app.
