    Minda has comeout with smart device for Honda under the name of Honda connect and CAROT for other vehicles (https://www.carot.com/).
    I was inquisitive and purchased one and subscribed their data base. However on fixing it on Linea emotion OBD (On board diagnostic system) port it did funny thing as below (refer pictures too)
    1. Fuel gauge showing complete exhausted despite of tank full
    2. Low fuel warning glows
    3. Temperature shows blank
    4. Door doesn't get locked / unlocked with remote
    5. disable air bag light glows
    6. starting problem

    I was in touch with Minda group but unfortunately no resolutions was made available and finally I have requested for return and refund.

    Does any one have any positive experience in using this

    To all those who want to know what this Carot instrument does.
    The instrument reads the status of the complete engine and other accessories status, reads the location through builtin GPS unit, Has a rechargeable battery inside, which holds power for around half an hour in the event of accident or detach of the instrument from the car and sens all the reports to a server through built-in GSM chip to the Minda premises. The mobile phone app is available which reads the data from the server on real-time basis. therefore following benefits can be obtained.
    1. It can be fed with 5 emergency numbers to inform in case of distress, accident
    2. Friends and relatives can track your movement and location.
    2. any problem with the engine will be informed immediately to the mobile app.
    3. you can count total travel time distance.
    4. in case of stolen vehicle you can trace the vehicle.
    5. you can analyse your driving style - it shows when you put a hard break, raced beyond pre-determined speed etc.
    6. it can record towing also.
