Rogers was ahead of the game when they launched Rogers SmartDrive back in July 2017. TELUS followed shortly after last month with TELUS Drive+. The remaining of Canada's "Big three" launched Bell Connected Car yesterday on November 21st, and Canadians now have plenty of options for a more high tech vehicle experience.
All three of the carriers' devices for the connected vehicle options are manufactured by ZTE. The programs all offer very similar features, including location and trip tracking, driving and vehicle diagnostics notifications, and a Wi-Fi hotspot for when you are on the road.
The ZTE device is compatible with a port that is built into most cars produced 1996 onward. You can connect your vehicle to your Bell Share plan for $10 per month without a term, or $15 per month a 2-year term. Like with Rogers and TELUS' connected car plans, there is a one-time hardware cost for the ZTE device. Bell has their priced at $199 without a contract, or $99 on a 2-year term.
