Pearl Auto please work on the proximity sensors working even if video goes out, and the camera recognizing the car is in reverse and opening the app. To those that have had issues. I would remind you there is almost an unlimited combination of hardware and versions of Android. And that doesn't take into consideration open apps, amount of ram, rooted phones, 3rd party launchers... Etc etc. I can only say that the RearVision so far works as it should with my phone. App opens when attached to the mount, video is crisp and clear, and setup was simple.
I wish it knew I was in reverse from the obd2 port. Sometimes I'm already backed up by the time the screen comes up. And will it be supported now that the company is shutting down? How is the warranty honored?
The hardware is great BUT the software is thier Achilles heel!!!!! Never ready when you need it the most, takes forever to load and establish connection and ALWAYS, ALWAYS automatically "updating " when you need it the most! Why can't we chose when to update or not update? They took away the best feature, landscape mode, and FORCE their inferior "Driving apps" on you. Why can't we specify our own apps or better yet disable the annoying "Driving" app feature altogether(Obviously they are getting paid by these other useless apps to force their junk on us)!!! If knew about this before I bought it I would have been better off buying a regular backup camera instead. Save yourself time and LOTs of MONEY and buy a regular backup camera it will work INSTANTLY and no time delaying, annoying updates. Now I see that the company is shutting down and we are stuck. Pearl should offer to buy back anyone's unit at full price!
A few minutes to install is bull#### been in my vehicle for over an hour waiting on updates I'm about to put it back in the dam box and send it back,
Amazing. Just need to fix on the connection sometimes.
I received the Rearvision on Feb 20th, so I have only been using the device for a few days. So far so good! I love it. The automatic app launch when you place phone on the mount is awesome. I am an Android user with a Samsung S6 Active and it take only a few secs for the rearveiw image to pop up. I have had no issues yet with the phone recognizing the device's wifi network. One thing I have noticed is the sync happens more seamlessly when the car is started first and then I place the phone on the mount. I am very impressed with the quality of the phone mount and clip. It is not some flimsy piece of crap plastic. I highly recommend setting up the guidelines. The lines superimposed in the display is a good feature. Good job Pearl!
Performance improvements and bug fixes.
