Bringrr is a device that plugs into your car’s power outlet/cigarette lighter, gets paired up with your cell phone, and then searches for that phone whenever the car is started. If it makes a connection, meaning that the phone is in the car or in close proximity to it, The Bringrr will flash blue and emit a confirming beep. If it can’t find the phone, it will flash red and emit a warning tone.
Bringrr works with any Bluetooth-enabled phone, and any vehicle with an outlet. No additional software on your phone, or anything else, is required. It won’t, however, work with a phone that doesn’t allow dual pairing. If a hands-free device is already being used with that phone, you’re out of luck. An upcoming firmware upgrade will allow dual pairing.
If you’re already using your vehicle’s outlet to charge your phone, you can also buy a Bringrr Charge, that combines a Bringrr with a cell phone charger.
The Bringrr will be available on the company website in mid-July for around $25. The Bringrr Charge will go for $44.99.
