It's not a bad idea for an app. I think it has the potential of making good drivers out of everybody. It does have quite a few flaws. Today I was driving in a 55 mile an hour end zone and I was penalized for speeding because in the app it only has it listed as 45 miles an hour. I've notified them about this twice and had failed to change it. Also when I use voice command through my car to answer a phone call or make a phone call I get penalized as well for phone distraction. I think that is something that needs to be fixed. My score right now is 99.0 so I don't need an app to tell me that I'm a good driver.
Stopped working 6/18 in the afternoon. Restarted 6/20. Misses trips. Sometimes gets weird speed number. I think highway speed rating should be changed to ignore speed limits which are almost universally ignored. Judge on turning and braking on highways and accept virtually any speed, even 110 in a 55. The defacto speed limit seems to be 75, even on NYC highways.
Good app, the UI is a bit to get used to & the app is a HUGE memory hog. (Tried to turn off bg data but no whenever phone tries to put it to sleep for battery, it comes back on w/ the notifications. I wish there was a way to ONLY have it running when I want it. I can remember to turn it on when driving. Also me using Google maps shouldn't count as phone distraction. I'm not texting or on the phone Otherwise good app. Fun competing with family who claim to be better drivers
This is a great idea, but like most ideas it doesn't pan out. This app eats battery life and has docked me for harsh turns when the entire road speed never reach 5mph. 3 times. My trip requires a u -turn harsh turn every time. I believe that my reception in rural areas may be to blame, but algorithm should accommodate that.
Couldn't detect gps and then never recorded any trips, saying battery was low when I arrived home, although phone was plugged in the entire time and above 60% (78%). Will give it one more try on a fully charged battery and if it doesn't record, will uninstall. Okay, that it !!!Couldn't take the constant notification that my gps wasn't activated while I was home using my WiFi and I turned off notifications in the app. Just effing annoying app. Uninstalled.
Great app for keeping me mindful of driving habits. My son and I use it to compete to get a better score than the other. Only issue is I cant figure out how to turn of the notification and email notification that my drive was evaluated. I had rather just go to the app when I am ready to see it - not get notifications over and over and over.
