Bluetooth for Rental Cars

Friday 06 January 2006 at 08:37 am Why hasn't Avis or Hertz or someone big built a bluetooth module that plugs into their cars that, when connected to by an approved device, will transmit information about the fullness of the fuel tank, the odometer reading, and any other information the car has to offer that is useful at the end of a rental.

On top of speeding up the rental return process (though it's pretty fast already), you can poll your entire lot, potentially remove the need for the checkout guy at the spikes gate, and reduce errors on data entry of the information upon return. Just a thought.
