If your car is on the list of supported cars, your EON will automatically recognize the model of your car by using the 2 following independent functions:
- It queries the VIN number of your car and verifies that the combination of model year, car make, car model and trim is with the list of supported cars.
- It performs an analysis on the CAN network traffic of your car. The presence of certain CAN messages and their lengths is also an indication of the model year, car brand, car model, and trim.
The combination of those two verification methods ensures that your car is being correctly identified. If your car isn’t recognized as supported, your EON will fall back to a dashcam only mode, preserving the stock functionalities and the user will receive a notification on the EON’s screen.
