Ratings and Reviews
Improved phone app; not great on the watch
I’m really liking the newly updated app! It’s a lot more consistent when starting my vehicle and it just looks way better! However, the app on the Apple Watch has plenty of room for improvement. If I go to start my car, I have to hold my watch up because the second I put my hand down it reverts back to the home screen and does not start the vehicle. So I’m basically having to wait with an immobile hand to make sure it actually starts. For some reason it also has an incredibly difficult time starting with the Apple Watch. It will actually process the request about 2/10 times. This is quite a nuisance because it defeats the purpose of it being more efficient. I truly do love the new phone app, but I would love it if they made some improvements to the watch app as well.

Yes, we are working a completely new platform for the iWatch. We are aware of these issues and they will be resolved shortly.
Horrible app, horrible technology...... keep away everyone!!!
Watch doesn’t work. It won’t sync with my iPhone. It keeps telling me to “sign into drone mobile on your iPhone. Handoff is available” I’m always logged in on my phone. I even deleted the app, downloaded the app again on both the phone and watch, logged back in, and I still have no function on my watch, and the same message. I don’t have the function to start my car automatically when it’s under a certain temp, nor do I get low battery notifications like it was said to be capable of doing, and having. I feel I wasted my money with you guys. I’m removing everything from my car involving this unit, starter and all, and will never change this review. I want do give no stars, and to make sure nobody buys this stuff. I was informed that everything will be back to normal as of March. It is the middle of April, and all I have for options is to keep opening the app, check my car, if my battery is dead, I can’t do anything about it???? This is bad technology, and a waste of $100+ dollars for service that doesn’t work. With my multi month travel, I can’t get off a plane, and into a working car??? I have to hope for a jump , of travel with a jump pack?????? Refund in order...... I only had this unit for 2 months and had use of it for a week with all functions working....... This isn’t a game you guys.... I want a refund for this...... Viper here I come!!!

Please accept my apologies for all of these issues. I am not able to find any support emails, asking for assistance for the missing low battery alert. If you are willing to give us another chance, please submit a ticket - https://support.dronemobile.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=30425
Provide you Drone email account, so we may start working on this right away.
As for the Watch - We are revamping the wearable app completely and we will release it the 2nd week of May. This will fix the "handoff" issue.
The function to start the car automatically at a specific time, needs to be set by the installer inside the remote start module. Currently, DroneMobile, is not able to complete this task directly from the app.
In regards to the dead battery, I believe there's a lack of information on how a remote start system works. If you travel for more than 7-10 days and you are constantly checking on your vehicle, any remote start system (not only Drone) will drain the battery. Every time you send a command you are depleting the battery. You will have the same scenario with any brand out in the market - Bulldog, Viper, Audiovoxx etc..
lastly, if you purchased a plan, please submit a ticket with your email for Drone, so we may look into this refund request.
The start reminder feature is MISSING!!!
I’m starting to regret buying this system and it’s because most of the time the notification doesn’t work, i.e it doesn’t tell me whether the car has started or not until I check the app of course. Secondly, R u KIDDING ME?! Where’s the start reminder timer feature?! That was at least something I was happy with (not thrilled with though because you guys should’ve programmed it the way that the app should’ve started the car, not by forcing me to go to the app and do all that manually), but at least there was such a thing. My friend told he has VIPER and it works a lot better than DroneMobile, I’m definitely considering to join the VIPER party instead of this crappy user interaction app that u guys made. Seriously, hire some good programmers instead of ur current not so creative and team. Look, all Im gonna say is that if you keep messing around and give the users the awful experience about their remote starter, rest assured that u will lose all ur customers.
So many serious flaws in the app itself, add the start feature using SIRI! How hard is that?!

Thank you so much for you feedback! We did have an issue with our notifications, but these have been corrected now. If you are still having problems, please submit a ticket - https://support.dronemobile.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=30425
We have an amazing team of programmers, working very hard to improve and bring the latest features to our platform. The remote start reminder will be back shortly.
As for Siri, we need more research to accomplish this feature, but for now, you can still use "Hey Siri unlock my car or Hey Siri, lock my car".
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
