Zubie is a "Connected Car" company that provides remote diagnostics and tracking of vehicle health, as well as location tracking and safe driving monitoring.
The mobile hotspot version of the Zubie also creates a local Wi-Fi network while your vehicle is powered on, with data provided by adding the Zubie to your shared Verizon data plan for an additional $10/mo.
The Zubie plugs directly into a vehicle's OBD-II Port - which is found hidden under the dash in most vehicles manufactured since the mid-1990's.

Mobile hotspot devices are small, self-contained units that receive a cellular data signal and transform it into an internet connection. They are a cellular modem and router combined. Most can create their own personal Wi-Fi network.
They are typically designed with a specific cellular carrier in mind and require a suitable cellular data plan of their own to operate. You might see them called Jetpacks (Verizon's term for them) or MiFi (Inseego's name for them).
