Most recent update fixed stuck notifications for one day, but today I again have a non-dismissable notification each time any of my cars is driven while I'm nowhere close to the car itself. I love this service in general and have several Automatic Pro adapters.
Needs landscape mode and it would be cool if it were available in android auto so you don't have to exit android auto to enter a gas fill-up. Persistent notification needs to go always while the car is off and not connected
While others are getting too many notifications I am getting none. No notification of vehicle start or parked. This is a feature I use daily and renders the app much less useful. I've checked the Android notifications settings and the app settings, cleared app cache and data, force stopped, rebooted the phone, launched and setup the app again. Still no notifications. Appreciate any information to resolve this issue. Pixel 2 running 8.1 with the February update.
I use my personal car for business so I need to track my mileage. This app has saved me a ton of work but it's missing key features so it's not compatible with the IRS should someone be audited. 1. Like MileIQ, it needs the ability to automatically tag trips as "business" based on your location. 2. When I tag a trip as "business" it needs a place for me to write in specifics, such as which client I saw and why. The IRS wants this info if they audit you! 3. I have mine connected to IFTTT so it loads all my trip info into Google Sheets. I wish it didn't load this info until after I selected a trip as "business" because I have to go in and record the info a second time. In fact, batch processing each night would be best. 4. The ability to review trips, tag as business, and write a description before being loaded to the server or Google sheets is important. Sometimes I'm running around too much and don't have time to input that information until the evening. 5. There should be a reminder that pops up every night or every morning reminding people to mark their trips as business or put a description in there. That way we won't forget. 6. A mileage estimator would be great as well. A reminder would pop up each month to input your current mileage and it would try and even it out and keep track. Without these features this app is nice but almost useless, in my opinion. Please do these features!!! PLEASE!!!!!!
Okay, you got rid of the persistent notification icon, but the connected notification still shows up in the drop down window. This is incredibly annoying. I do not need to be constantly told that the device is connected while I'm driving. Please make this go away or at least let me dismiss it or turn it off altogether.
Pixel 2 XL says app is running in background and consuming lots of battery, have to force close after driving.
