A must have!!!

Absolutely a must have in any situation! First it works as it’s described and does what it says!!! Control of your vehicle from anywhere at all! It will save you money on insurance if you have full coverage because when you have the full premium version it’s considered live tracking and theft recovery. So it essential pays for itself but even if not it’s so cheap per month for the service it’s absolutely a no brainer!!! You have your phone all the time now you have your remote all the time and you have multiple remotes because it’s email based app that can be installed on unlimited amount of phones for one price!! There’s so many pros for this and almost no cons!!! If your thinking about it let this be the read that puts you over to I need this in my life because quality of life will become so much more in any weather hot or cold!!! I use mine year round hands down the best on the market cause I’ve tried the others and so glad I found this!!! Drone mobile for the win!!!!

Inconsistent- Don’t Recommend

This app is very inconsistent! Currently it’s not starting my car even when it says that my car is running. The status of my car is ALWAYS inaccurate! It will say that the doors are unlocked when they aren’t, also it’ll say that a door is open when it isn’t. I refresh the app thinking it will display accurate information and it doesn’t, also the time in the app is never correct either. I’m very frustrated because I’ve spent my money on this and it’s not working properly. Living in Michigan I thought this would be a great option especially with winter approaching. I can’t rely on this app to start my car. The app will say my car has been started and once I get there I realize that my car wasn’t even running. At least display a failed to start car notification. Please fix the issue!

Hi KaylaJ20,

We are sorry to hear about your inconsistent experience with the DroneMobile App. DroneMobile is used on all different kinds of vehicles, and sometimes status may not be reported correctly under circumstances with certain vehicles.

If your DroneMobile app is telling you that a remote start command was successful, but it doesn't actually execute the command, this may be an issue with your remote starter and not necessarily the connectivity of the app or the DroneMobile Module itself.

That said, we'd love to connect with you about this issue and provide some further detailed assistance once we have investigated your account. Please send us a support ticket at or give us a call at (888)820-3690 on Mon-Fri 8am-5pm PST. Thank you!

Servers down Info in real-time

Whenever servers are down I don’t know what’s going on and when I send start or stop instructions from my phone nothing works and says device error and check if the device is online etc. I went to blogs to read and it seems every 3 hrs the servers get refreshed. The feature I would like to see is if at all the drone servers are down or going through an upgrade , and when a user tries to remote start at the same time , the app should give me an alert onscreen saying the servers are down and try after a calculated down time and not any vague eta. This will help not to try to remote start as it won’t via the app since it works via the car keys . But when you have drone mobile , the manual key startup beats the whole purpose specially in winter with kids freezing . Secondly I wanna see my subscription/ plan info on the app itself atleast not sure why that is not here in the latest version .
Hence 3 stars and when I see these 2 critical features it will go to full 5 and I hope this comes soon to The app.

Developer Response ,

Hello customer,

Thank you for reaching out. I can tell you confidently that our servers do not shut down or restart every 3 hours. We strive for 99%+ uptime, and a 3hour refresh rate would not be acceptable.

That said, we will take a close look at your feedback and continue to improve this app experience.
