Sign Up as a Developer Today
So you’re a developer that wants to build the next cool connected car app? Maybe you want to have your car integrated with your home security system? Or perhaps automatically suggest traffic routes to you? Maybe you’re a business owner that wants your customers to be automatically notified when their order is en route? These are just some of the ideas we’ve heard developers talk about. What’s your idea?
Of course, if you want to build a connected car application, you need a connected car. Developers want to focus on what they’re good at. They don’t want to worry about how to actually connect a car or how to manage that connectivity, they just want to treat it like everything else in the digital world – access it through an API! And that’s where we come in!
Carvoyant provides the tools needed to connect any car from 1996 and newer to your application. We manage the connectivity, monitor the information flow and normalize it into a standard set of RESTful APIs that developers can easily integrate into their own applications.
The best way to get started is to register as a standard developer and create a Sandbox API key. This will let you make calls against our API using artificial data. It will let you get familiar with what our platform can do. When you’re ready, you can order a developer device and start working with the data from your personal vehicle. As your application moves from the proof of concept, through testing through active deployment, we can help you connect your customers. With our growing fleet of connected drivers, we also have opportunities for you to market your application to cars that are already connected.
Carvoyant’s API gives you visibility into your car about information including geo-location, speed monitoring, battery voltage, engine speed, engine temperature, miles driven and the mysterious check engine light. As the connected car technology improves, the Carvoyant API will grow with it providing even more information to our developers. Leaving our developers to focus on providing amazing applications to their customers.

What data is available through your API?
- Miles Driven
- Battery Voltage
- Diagnostic Trouble Codes
- Fuel usage rate
- Fuel level
- Odometer Reading
- Accelerometer data (harsh breaking/accelerating, hard turns, impact detection)
- Towing Detection
- Some devices models support plug/unplug detection
- Some of these data points are limited by what is available from the specific Engine Control Unit of a particular vehicle.
Note that as connected car technology improves and as we integrate with other partners, the data that we can provide will grow. Please refer to the API documentation for exact information about what information we can supply.
Can I upgrade after signing up?
Yes, you can upgrade at any time after signing up. Just contact us and we can take care of it!
Will this work on all cars?
In the US, our platform works for any car built since 1996. We need an OBDII port in order for a device to connect to the vehicle using our supplied devices. For vehicles that are already connected in some other manner, we can work with the connection provider to give you access to the vehicle. Globally, many manufacturers also use the OBDII design but it is not mandated. Contact us for questions regarding global deployments.
