Technology that "Just Works"

Plug the Groove module into your vehicle, sync your phone and that's it. Groove knows when you're driving and blocks distractions until you complete your trip.


Groove technology determines who is in the vehicle, who is driving, and which distractions to block. Groove's intelligence creates the best possible user experience for every scenario.


Our telecom partners have invested in network technologies to limit distractions on your mobile phone while you are driving. Groove notifies the mobile phone carrier when a subscriber is driving, limiting distractions until the drive ends.

Leveraging Good Intentions
