According to the New York Times, the hardware side of Zubie is a Fig Newton-size "key" that plugs into a car's OBD-II diagnostics port.

The 99.95 dollars worth Zubie unit also has a GPS receiver and a cellular data connection.

Drivers can access information about their cars using a Zubie app for iPhone or Android devices.

The car's location can be shared automatically by setting up groups that will be notified of your whereabouts, a useful feature for families.
