Motor Pulse is a unique diagnostic and monitoring device designed to watch over the health of a car, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The device synchronizes with the car's computer system to generate reports. These reports are easy to read, and the owner can also get alerts via the free app. There isn’t an installation process or additional equipment needed for the device. Once plugged in, it does a deep scan of the system, giving important information about the engine, transmission, brakes, cooling system, upcoming repairs, urgent issues, and more.
The cost of Motor Pulse is $39.99 plus $8.99 shipping, for a total price of $48.98. Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: buymotorpulse.com
The device uses a state-of-the-art industry standard set of diagnostic codes to gather information about the car. It generates detailed reports that are interactive, easy to read, and for free, all on your cell phone. You also get a complete status of the car along with other details, like potentially problematic areas, upcoming maintenance checks, urgent repairs, or general information about the car. The device is always monitoring the car, so, all reports are based on current and latest information.
The device comes with a free phone app that is supported on common mobile platforms like Windows & Android, irrespective of their versions. This makes the app usable on practically every available smartphone or tablet on the market.
The device is pocket-friendly twice over, because of how affordable and small it is. It’s a compact sized device that is smaller than a cell phone but slightly bigger than a flash drive or Bluetooth device. It is portable and ready to use whenever and wherever it’s needed because there are no extra parts or cables.
Nowadays, almost every car comes with a diagnostic data port, and the Motor Pulse has just that single requirement – a data port. This data port is the same one mechanics use to run their tests or diagnose problems in a car. This makes it usable in almost every make and model. It works on any type of vehicle, including new cars, used cars, large trucks, or Recreational Vehicles (RV). It's also supported on vehicles running fossil fuels like Gasoline or Petrol, Diesel, or in Hybrid electric vehicles.
The device does not tap into the car’s battery unnecessarily when not running. It doesn’t even require too much power to run its monitoring algorithms, or for report generation. This means that it is safe to leave plugged in at all times.
For a short period, the company is offering two devices for a little more than the price of one. This device comes in handy when monitoring the car of a family member. For example, an elderly parent, or a teenager who is learning to drive. So, a second device at a nominal fee is a great offer. When placing an order for one device, the buyer has to simply pay an extra nominal fee during checkout for the first device, to get the second one almost for free.
Whether it is one’s own car or the car of a loved one, it is important to know any underlying issues that could lead to dangerous incidents. The device immediately notifies a user through the phone app if urgent action needs to be taken. It also sends notifications if there is any maintenance servicing due, such as getting the oil checked, replacing brake fluid, and so on.
This becomes useful in day-to-day life, or in the case of long-distance road trips where a lot of planning is required. This is especially useful for emergency journeys where there isn’t time to go to a mechanic beforehand. Always stay updated where the functionality of your car is concerned, and receive updates on the status of your brakes, oil, fuel, cooling systems, and so on, without spending time at a garage.
A major plus point for this device is its ability to provide an estimated cost of repair. A common problem for both average and experienced car owners is knowing the true cost of repairs. The app gives you an estimated cost, which gives you a good idea of how accurate, or overblown, your mechanic’s bill is. It is easy to negotiate on a bill, and get reductions, once a user is aware of the true costs of any part.
Car mechanics often take advantage of unsuspecting customers through incorrect assessments, expensive maintenance checks, or inflated prices for replacement parts. It can be difficult to successfully identify a problem. It's equally difficult to know whether a generated invoice is fair or simply contains costs that are entirely out of proportion to the repairs done on the vehicle. One is usually left with no choice but to go along with whatever the mechanic says since there is no way to check or compare prices.
There’s also the question of ‘unexplained problems’, such as an unexplained knocking sound at the rear of the car, which refuses to repeat itself at the garage. In other cases, an owner might have a difficult time reproducing or describing a problem. This leads to multiple visits to the garage, which in return means expensive bills with perhaps no resolution of the problem with the vehicle. Motor Pulse aims at removing this barrier by providing accurate information on what needs to be fixed, and what the estimated cost should be. This knowledge is powerful since you won’t be talked into having expensive tests done, or have to unnecessarily replace well-functioning parts or leave the garage without the problem fixed.
This device is an excellent tool if you’re looking into buying a car, especially if you intend to buy used. You won’t get a lemon palmed off on you if you use this device to assess the vehicle. This device can be your greatest ally during a test drive. Just plug it in, and download a detailed report about the vehicle. This allows you to save money on a deficient car, or on potential expenses in the future.
Pocket Mechanic is a small computer system that is handheld. It's aimed at helping drivers find problems in their cars without necessitating the services of a professional mechanic, or a trip to a dealership. Users can connect it to the car’s data port, and a simple three-color display shows the status of the car. It is not advisable to drive if the device shows that the vehicle is in the red zone. A yellow code means that there are some important repairs due. A green code means that the car is good to go. The device uses a high-tech data interface that retrieves information based on the car’s diagnostic codes. A driver can gather further details about their car if they connect the device to a computer.
