Drivemode and Urgent.ly partner to bring connected car services to smartphones

Drivemode, an app that allows drivers to access smartphone functions while looking at and focusing on the road when driving, has teamed up with roadside assistance company Urgent.ly.

Drivemode, the mobile-based automotive technology company, has partnered with roadside assistance technology provider Urgent.ly to allow Drivemode's active users to have in-app access to Urgent.ly's fast and safe roadside assistance.

Based in Silicon Valley, California, Drivemode is an Android app created by former Zipcar and Tesla innovators.  Designed to change the way consumers interact with their cars, Drivemode's 'no-look' interface allows users to focus on the road ahead, not their phone, while easily accessing music, navigation, calls, texts, and now roadside assistance.

This convergence of the automotive and high-tech sectors will provide Drivemode users with access to connectivity features, the latest apps, and all of the technology in their phones as though it is embedded in their car, making it easier for them to focus on the road when driving.

The partnership will see Urgent.ly, which provides roadside assistance technology through branded- and white-label products, featured within Drivemode's app alongside other partners such as Spotify, WhatsApp and Waze.

"We're thrilled to now be able to offer our users the very best in roadside assistance," said Yo Koga, co-founder and CEO of Drivemode. "With Urgent.ly we're expanding the level of services drivers can access within our product, furthering our mission to provide a safe and distraction-free way to enjoy full connectivity while behind the wheel."

"Urgent.ly and Drivemode are giving everyone with a smartphone access to a premium driving experience," said Urgent.ly CEO and co-founder Chris Spanos. “Drivemode democratizes connected-car technology, bringing an advanced feature set to the mass market, regardless of the car you drive."
