Driver is here to ensure you’re taken care of on the road. Driver offers a fully connected driving experience through our Cloud + App platform, covering liability protection, roadside services, claims assistance, driver education, legal and vehicle support, partner deals, and more.
The Driver App has two primary modes for liability protection: 1) Dash Cam 2) Pocket Drives. In both modes, your trips are fully enriched with location, speed, G-force, weather, and telematic events and are automatically uploaded to the Driver Cloud after the end of your drive. Sharing a trip with your insurance, boss, or family is as easy as sending a URL link to your trip on the Driver Cloud.

Forward Collision Warnings
Get audio alerts to warn you if you're getting too close to the car in front with just your iPhone. Our proprietary advanced computer vision algorithm adjusts the system’s sensitivity based on the driver’s attentiveness to improve the system’s performance.
Get visual and audio alerts if you’ve nodded off while behind the wheel. The system will start calibrating at a speed threshold of about 20mph.
Driver uses machine learning algorithms to automatically capture hard braking, hard accelerations, speeding, near accidents, unsafe following events, and more. Data is knowledge and can be used by anyone to become a safer driver.
- Connect your phone to Apple CarPlay to use Driver in Dash Cam Mode alongside your preferred navigation and music apps
- Use a dash mount that allows Dash Cam mode to record in landscape
- For longer trips, keep your phones plugged into your charger (USB cable)
- During hot summer days, avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight

Ratings and Reviews
Easy, effective, just what I needed
It’s easy to open the app, place the phone on my magsafe mount in the center of my dash, press record, and go. I do it without thinking now. I love the fact that I can quickly delete uneventful trips, or set a schedule for deletion so it doesn’t overload my phone. I can also see stored videos online if needed for a truly modest subscription. I can choose HD if I want to capture small details like license plates, etc. I recently saved some video of a near miss so I know I can access an accident if needed. I’m able to review trips on my Mac—a nice convenience. I also used it with navigation and it worked fine.
I’m on an iPhone 14, so I don’t have an option to record sound yet, but that’s not a feature I have to have. It beeps if it detects a possible hazard, and clearly identifies the objects in front of me by name—car, bus, truck, person. Frankly, I can’t believe this app is available for my phone. I can’t think of a single reason why I’d want to pay for an independent dashcam. This does the job effectively, with a device I already own. Great app.
Nice, but missing key feature
Easy to use app, but speed is locked behind premium. Not worth $5/month when I can get that feature with a one time payment of buying a dash cam. Average speed is useless, if I need to fight a ticket, live speed synched to camera and gps is needed. I was pretty excited about this until I realized the speed wasn’t there. I’d be willing to pay a higher one time fee to unlock live speed, but I’m not paying for anymore subscriptions. No wonder people complain about not being able to afford rent when they’re spending their rent money on 100 different subscription services.
ETA: they did offer a free trial of premium for me, but I will have to decline as I will not renew and I don’t want to use services that cost you money when I know I won’t be convinced in the end. If it ever becomes available in the free version though, let me know, this is a great app that I would happily use. Another option if you want to still incentivize the premium plan is to have the live speed stored in the video data but not displayed in the free version. So you gotta go premium to see it live, but if you need to defend a ticket with the free version, you can pull up your saved video and see the live speed.
Developer Response ,
Hello, and thank you for the review and feedback! We understand providing your real time speed is an important feature when it comes to defending yourself. Driver Premium is required to view your real time speed as it is linked with other real time trip information available in the Driver Cloud to provide the driver with a complete backup of an incident, not just video. We appreciate your feedback, as making real time speed available without a subscription is a future possibility. I would love to provide you with a trial of Premium so you can see for yourself how it works! Please email us at email@example.com and we can set you up! Thanks again for using Driver!
I’ve enjoyed hundreds of different apps since the 2007 inception of iOS.
Never before have I felt the need to congratulate a developer on a job well done; as it’s my humble opinion: a job is not worth doing if it can’t be done right.
Driver however is SO incredibly well done, I’m embarrassed i looking into physical dash cams at all.
Usability: the app itself is straightforward and wonderfully designed. In all honesty, skip the tutorial and go straight to the app— navigating the tutorial was more confusing than the app itself.
Features: base app is loaded to begin with, add the 4.99 premium and you’re upgraded to the cloud which can store videos as well as make trip summaries, driver assistance features such as object identification and crash warning… and literally what blew my mind: if you provide your address, they’ll mail you a car mount. A FREE car mount. A free COOLING car mount to prevent your phone from overheating in the windshield. I expected the thing to arrive in six month given the price point… it arrived in three days.
Quality: I’m downright flummoxed how they’ve managed to accomplish recording simultaneous high quality feeds with limited storage space required. About 6 hours of dual-cam fed footage is equivalent to 2 gigs on my phone.
Wishlist: just one (which says a lot because I got needs)…you can identify people, you can identify buses and cars… how bout an alert when the light turns green?

Hello, and thank you so much for the kind review! I have ensured the developers got to read this and pat themselves on the back! We love our product, and get excited about improving it to make the best tool we can for drivers. A lot of work goes into these features, and hearing that they are appreciated means the world to us! Driver's ability to identify objects has endless possibilities in what we can do with it! In time, we can work towards identifying objects that we believe increase the safety of the Driver, such as traffic lights. We hope to hear any additional feedback you may have by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you again!
