When it doesn’t freeze up
I downloaded this app so we could plan a cross-country trip with stops approximately every 10 hours. I have not found another app which allows this except for this AAA app. I find this feature extremely important for our trip the only issue I have is their application likes to freeze. I don’t use this for my insurance discounts. I think you’re a complete fool if you let your insurance company track your driving habits because things happen on the road which you might have to speed up or slow down abruptly. I can’t imagine getting dinged on my insurance because the application thinks I am speeding or swerving or driving reckless. Farmers insurance wanted to track my driving and I also thought this was a ridiculous notion. Why does everybody think it’s a good idea to have a watchful eye over your driving habits. Dumb dumb dumb idea. I’m just saying, if you plan on using this to track your driving for insurance purposes I think you’re making a foolish decision. Who the hell wants their insurance agent riding around shotgun with them all the time!

Great idea, poorly executed
The AAA Drive part of the app is a great idea. I like to save money on my insurance. The AAA Drive part of the app is poorly executed though. Metrics for distracted driving does not make sense. How does one earn a score of 100? The phone is face down in the center console of the car, the phone has do not disturb turned on, the radio is off... and I score a 91 out of 100? Not cool. Smooth driving is mostly dependent on how you have your phone secured. If it is hanging and swings about, expect a low score. I find flat works best, but it’s not perfect. I scored a 60 in a parking lot and I was going slow and not accelerating or stopping hard. The map showed that I was accelerating hard and slamming on the brake. Really? Phone was in my jacket pocket. The funny thing was that distraction metric was 99 on that test drive. I received a phone call in a parking lot. I answered and pulled into a parking spot. I got dinged hard for that handsfree call while parked. Might I make a suggestion to the dev team and just use the do not disturb as an over riding metric. Also, have an OBDII BT option to get the correct metrics from the car’s system. This app doesn’t have a way to detect if one fully stops at a stop sign either. Create a way to note on the map where it shows sudden braking why that happened.
The app uses location services to, among other things, tell you you’re driving by another Hampton Inn or Pearls Vision and you can get a discount there through AAA. It’s great if you’re driving around looking to randomly get hotel rooms or prescription glasses.
So, then just turn location services to “Only while using the app” and problem solved, right???
Well, I’ve never seen an app so determined to track my every move every day. Every time I open the app I get this message that says I should turn on location services on to use the app, with a link to the phone settings saying to turn location services to always. Open the app, try to find a repair facility and get directions? Here’s your admonishment that the app won’t work unless you set location services to always. Wanna turn the notification off? Sorry, you can only ask to be reminded again later or go to settings.
It’s annoying and really shows how desperate they are to gather sell data points on their membership. It’s unnecessary, I can use the app just fine with location services enabled while using the app only. I’m reconsidering deleting the app, which is the opposite of what they want. Im pretty sure using their services and discounts is a bigger revenue generator than membership dues
