This month, we’re excited to announce a brand-new design for Connect Your Car, a new version of the Compatibility API, and updated back-end SDKs.
Connect Your Car is a resource that informs vehicle owners on how to set up their connected services account. We’re proud to announce that Connect Your Car now has a brand-new design and even more information for vehicle owners. Visitors can learn what connected services are and how they can connect their car to an app using Smartcar. They can also check whether their vehicle is eligible for a connected services account.
The Compatibility API now features a new response format with more detailed information. Instead of only indicating whether a vehicle is compatible or incompatible with the Smartcar platform, the Compatibility API now also tells developers which of the requested API endpoints the vehicle is capable of.
Our Python, Node.js, Java, Ruby, and Go SDKs now support v2.0 of the Smartcar API. This major release includes usability improvements and additional features. Returned objects like odometer and vehicle info are now more similar to the response documented in our API reference. We have also added SDK methods for scheduled webhooks.
Vehicle brands and model names belong to their respective trademark holders and do not indicate endorsement of or affiliation with Smartcar.
