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?
As a heavy and long-time tech user, I didn't expect to have set up difficulties with a $500 product that touts how easy it is to connect. The FAQs are useless for my issue and when I use the "call us" button I get a 4 digit phone number. Update: After using it for over a year I am still very disappointed. Video fails and I have to wait for it to recover every single time it's used. Completely unacceptable for a $500 Gadget. Not happy at all.
Anyone know how to reset the wifi passcode? I tried the take out the obd sensor and plug it back in then wait 2 min and it does not work.
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!
Hardware was well built and sturdy, however, the application itself was unable to detect my OBD device. This renders the product completely useless.
Performance improvements and bug fixes.
