Don’t let the title fool you, this device is not meant exclusively for Smart Cars! This is a special gadget that makes your car smarter using some very clever technology and I have had the privilege of testing it out.
The Zus has two main attributes that make it an extremely useful car accessory. The first is a specialised fast charger, which allows 2 USB devices to be plugged in simultaneously, and then both charged at double time (i.e. it takes half the amount of time to charge an iPhone than a regular car phone charger). For me this is the main selling point as I frequently need to charge my phone, and I often have multiple apps and Bluetooth activated thus the battery does not last as long as I would like.
A secondary purpose of the Zus, but by no means a simple extra to compliment the charge function, is the ability to locate your car anywhere. To use, simply download an easy to use app from the App Store, install the Zus in your car charger port and turn on Bluetooth – that is as hard as it gets. From there, your phone and Zus will work in harmony to register each time you park the car and then record the location so you can find it again.
In full honesty, the car location aspect worked fine for me and I tested it in a multi-storey car park as well as around my hometown however, I don’t often lose my car in any of these locations so for me, in the areas I tested it – it was slight superfluous. That being said, I can see how a function such as this could be extremely useful in areas you are unfamiliar with or in countries you may be visiting. I imagined being in a large foreign town, parking and then walking through the twisted cobbled streets and ending up completely lost – at this point, the Zus would be perfect!
The Zus has a compact quality design that is neither intrusive nor obstructive, plug it in and then forget that it’s there (unless you need a quick charge!). It is the perfect addition for any car driver or gadget lover.
