Forget self-driving cars. If you own car within the last two decades, you’ve probably been wondering about how you might better check up on your car. Automatic has a dongle that divulges troves of information about how you can treat your car of this problem or that route.

But add LTE and Tizen OS and you get Samsung’s Connect Auto dongle. It, too, plugs into that OBD II diagnostics port that cars have (usually under the dashboard or steering wheel) and connects users to their car securely (using Samsung KNOX protection) through LTE — acting as a Wi-Fi hotspot as needed, too.

Data gathered from the car can be useful for Usage-Based Insurance calculations and for signalling to automotive associations in case trouble arises.

AT&T will have first dibs on the Connect Auto come Q2.
