ADVANCED IGNITION DETECTION
NC1701 FEATURE INCLUDED AS STANDARD
VEHICLE IGNITION STATUS
WHAT IS IT?
Understanding the state of the vehicle’s ignition is paramount for a CAN connected telematic device. Without this information, it is possible to cause issues with the car by attempting to run commands on the CAN Bus when it is not in the correct state.
Furthermore, with certain cars like BMWs, unless your telematic device detects ignition in the correct manner, the vehicle’s alarm and immobilizer will trigger, causing immense issues in the field.
HOW IT WORKS
Most telematic devices use standard OBD2 commands to detect ignition but, as in the BMW example above, these are not always effective. NC1701 uses Configuration Files from our MECH5 cloud to specifically determine the vehicle model from the VIN, which in turn allows that NC1701 to look at ignition sources from all over the CAN bus and not just OBD2 derived commands.
