The automatic Emergency Call (similar to the eCall) independently contacts emergency services in case of an accident – you do not have to (be able to) do anything. I.e. it works (especially) if you have lost consciousness after an accident. You phone does not have to issue a call for this. The PACE app registers that an accident happened and triggers an alarm via the data connection of your smartphone. Now you have 30 seconds to cancel this emergency call by tapping on the screen of your phone. If you do not do so, PACE will automatically send out an emergency call to the rescue services. In this case, the location of your car, the time of the accident and your phone number will be transferred to the emergency medical services.
For the Emergency Call to work without problems, your mobile phone is required to have a working data connection, location services and an active GPS signal. Your phone moreover needs to be connected with the PACE Link via Bluetooth, and the PACE Link has to be plugged in correctly.
