Well, where there's a problem, technology is bound to find a solution.
That solution is a new service, devised by Advance Auto Parts in collaboration with mFoundry, that keeps track of your vehicle's maintenance schedule and can remind you, say, if your oil is due for a change after the Advance Auto Parts recommended interval of 90 days. The service, available to web-enabled users of Sprint, Nextel and Cingular phones, has a range of other auto-related features from how-to articles on vehicle repair to business locators and driving directions.
The service would entail a $2.99 monthly service charge, billed directly to the mobile phone user's invoice. The how-to information is stored directly on the mobile phone, in an effort to avoid eating up excessive minutes by downloading the necessary files.
