Talk about street smart. Today, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) launched major
upgrades to its all-in-one connected car solution, SyncUP DRIVE™, with
more features and a refreshed app. Now, SyncUP DRIVE customers can
request and track their included Allstate® Roadside Assistance in
real-time through the app just like you would a rideshare, easily see
gas prices and nearby stations, and get an improved overview of vehicle
diagnostics – all without any extra cost.

“This is just what the Un-carrier does. We listen to customers and find
ways to upgrade your experience without upgrading the cost!” said John
Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. “This free upgrade is yours, whether you’ve
been with us for a while, or are just joining the SyncUP DRIVE family.
We’ve got you – and your car – covered and connected.”
What is SyncUP
DRIVE? It’s a connected car solution compatible with most vehicles
on the road today, and it helps you understand your car better and keep
you and your family safer on the road. With today’s updates, your SyncUP
DRIVE app gets a whole new look, making it easier than ever to navigate…
and it gets a whole new set of features that help you:
Track your roadside assistance in real-time: Request roadside
assistance from the new app and track your tow truck in real-time –
just like your favorite ride-sharing app but for 24/7 assistance for
lockouts, jumps, tire changes and more.
Be gas-savvy: Save time and money at the pump – the new app
displays gas prices and nearby locations.
Monitor your car’s needs at a glance: New dashboard gives you
an overview of your car’s health with color-coded icons to help you
prioritize what needs your attention first, whether it’s your gas
tank, engine or battery – and gives you other helpful insights.
Go paperless: Your new virtual glovebox can store a digital
copy of your insurance, registration and maintenance records so you’ll
have it all at the ready, when you need them.
Stay better connected: With the recent hardware update, SyncUP
DRIVE is 600 MHz capable, giving you better coverage than before in
rural areas and structures like parking garages.
SyncUP DRIVE also turns your car into a mobile hotspot with in-vehicle
Wi-Fi, helps you to pinpoint the location of your vehicles – super
helpful for parents of teen drivers or if you forgot where you parked –
and analyzes driving behavior, offering tips to save on wear and tear.
And, because SyncUP DRIVE plugs into your car’s OBD-II on-board
diagnostics port (standard on most cars built after 1996), you’ll
finally have some insight on what’s happening when that dreaded, vague
‘check engine’ light pops on – it’s like having a digital mechanic along
for the ride. And you can manage it all through the new and improved
app, which will be rolling out starting today on iOS
– available for all new and existing SyncUP DRIVE customers.
T-Mobile’s SyncUP DRIVE is available in select T-Mobile stores across
the nation. Well-qualified customers can get one today for just $4/month
($0 down, FRP: $96) – all on T-Mobile’s no-interest 24-month Equipment
Installment Plan. Connect your SyncUP DRIVE with plans starting at
$10/month with Autopay. For more information on Roadside Assistance from
