If you’ve ever wanted to take your old car and add smart features to it, your best bet for doing so is the new Vinli OBD-II Dongle, which adds a WiFi hotspot and integrated apps aplenty.

Sure, you could use the dongle the same way you’d use other diagnostic tools to get important information from your vehicle’s innards. But, this tool also doubles as a 4G LTE WiFi hotspot, and you’re able to download a wide selection of car-inspired apps. The device also has an onboard accelerometer and a standalone GPS with GLONASS, which can be used by apps for numerous things such as collision detection. The dongle easily installs into any OBD-II port under the dash. 4G data is offered on a pay-as-you-go basis. What’s more, the device has its own processing system (using Linux), making it easy to turn your old car into a smarter vehicle. It’s available now for $199. [Purchase]
