TalkyCar is an automated voice assistant for drivers utilizing real-time data from your car engine ECU through a Bluetooth OBD / ELM adaptor.
A car has her own character, and like everyone does, you'd rather think your car as a real person, perhaps your best buddy? TalkyCar enables your car to speak her mind in human languages. With comprehensive built-in straight line and corner A.I., whenever there is any interesting performance result (e.g. 0-60mph, hard cornering, distinctive acceleration/braking G force and lot more) coming out of the engine or any driving event (e.g. drifting, poor revs management during intensive driving, engine cold start etc.) might be of your interest, TalkyCar will speak out to let you know what is going on with exact numbers in real-time. You can even customized an event (e.g. your best shift-timing, rev limit alarm) to let TalkyCar notify you when your preset criteria is met. TalkyCar could even tell jokes when you are bored with traffic.
Eyes-free and hands-free
TalkyCar is both eyes-free and hands-free. The application is highly automated based on voice interaction. So distraction to the driver is absolutely minimized, which is our number one design principle since the building of TalkyCar from day one. We want you to know these interesting numbers of your car right at the time when you are pushing towards your car’s limit without putting you in any kind of unsafe driving circumstances.
No drills, no suction cups and no wires
Not like many other applications, with TalkyCar, you don’t have to dock your phone somewhere in your car to get it to work. As long as TalkyCar is running on your phone, you can leave it in your pocket and even pick up any phone call without stopping data logging. It is absolutely hassle free during the entire installment and usage.
Difference between free/lite version and paid/full version:
The paid/full version has industry-leading cornering features, full straight-line features, more hot chick voice packages, and MANY other features not included in the free version.
