Verizon announced Tuesday that “Verizon Vehicle” is a new service that will help millions of owners of older cars have the same in-car electronics and connectivity that most of the newer models of cars have.

“Verizon Vehicle” will feature several items like roadside assistance, stolen-vehicle tracking and diagnostics to help figure out if your car is having mechanical issues.

“There’s no bigger, more powerful connected device than the vehicle,” said the head of Verizon’s telematics unit Andres Irlando at the North American Auto Show in Detroit. “We will empower the millions of drivers who have been locked out of the digital experience.”

Interestingly, since the service helps travelers, and will compete with companies like AAA, “Verizon Vehicle” will also offer discounts on hotels and car rentals.
