The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is used for two primary purposes.
First, the VIN is utilized to associate the data from your device to the right vehicle in your account. Most vehicles communicate the VIN directly to the Bouncie device on the OBD port. Our system then uses this information to ensure the driving and location data are correctly linked to the vehicle. This feature enables you to switch the device between vehicles and still make sure the data reflects appropriately in the app.
Secondly, the VIN is needed to register your vehicle for roadside assistance.
