  • Publication number: 20050208936
    Abstract: A method and system for testing cellular network integrity using telematics comprising determining at least one network condition data at a telematics unit, initiating a data call from the telematics unit to a telematics call center, establishing a data call communication channel between the telematics unit and the telematics call center, and transmitting at least one network condition data to the telematics call center via the established data call communication channel. A computer usable medium with suitable computer program code is employed for testing cellular network integrity using telematics.

  • Publication number: 20050187680
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for providing automated vehicle diagnostic function within a mobile vehicle communication system. The method includes configuring a primary diagnostic script for a telematics equipped mobile vehicle, providing the primary diagnostic script to the mobile vehicle, executing the primary diagnostic script, and collecting diagnostic data based on the executed primary diagnostic script. The primary diagnostic script may recreate known problem sequences when executed or may trigger data capture when specific conditions exist. The step of configuring the primary diagnostic script may include determining at least one diagnostic script based on diagnostic options and retrieving the at least one determined diagnostic script. One or more diagnostic scripts may be combined into the primary diagnostic script.

  • Publication number: 20050164695
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for managing wireless network information collection utilizing a telematics unit within a telematics equipped mobile vehicle. The method includes detecting at least one wireless short-distance communication network identification signal, generating wireless network information based on the detected wireless network identification signals, and communicating the generated wireless network information to a service provider. The wireless short-distance communication network identification signal may include an internet protocol address, a location identification tag, GPS coordinates, points of interest, venue capacity, venue size, or category.

  • Publication number: 20050165514
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for managing registration requests of a telematics unit within a telematics equipped mobile vehicle. The method includes receiving a restricted use command from a service provider, initiating a restricted use mode based on the received restricted use command, and modulating a transmission rate of at least one registration request based on the restricted use mode. The restricted use command may include a contact increment. The contact increment may include contact rate information. The contact increment may include contact initiation information. The restricted use mode may operate the telematics unit in a low-power configuration. The step of modulating the transmission rate of the registration request may include identifying a contact increment within the received restricted use command, determining contact information within the contact increment, and implementing the modulated transmission rate based on the determined contact information.

  • Publication number: 20050136978
    Abstract: The current invention provides a method and system for establishing communication to a mobile module. A plurality of call signals is initiated into the mobile module from a plurality of remote communication devices based on a timed sequence. Which of the plurality of call signals has established communication with the mobile module is determined. The call signals that have not established communication are terminated based on the determination. A computer usable medium with suitable computer program code is employed for establishing communication to a mobile module.
