Abstract

Disclosed is a method and system for storing personal preferences, such as preferred settings for an automobile driver (including seat adjustments, mirror adjustments, ventilation and so on) on a personal, portable device. When a person carries this device to a foreign environment, such as a rental car, the settings in the device are transmitted to a remote server that computes equivalent settings for the new environment, using the stored settings and the original environment as a reference. The device then may be used to establish these new settings in the new environment, thus achieving settings that are equivalent to those of the original environment.
