There’s been times where is said my 4-cyl Nissan Rogue accelerated, however it’s impossible to do that in the type of vehicle when there is so much lag. And more importantly, as some who uses this phone as a medical device, this app can be draining on the phones battery when it’s tracking me every single place I go. So, I in particular, have to choose between using a medical device or saving money by using this app. If I don’t go on my phone daily to confirm the trips, then I could mess myself up confirming a trip where I’m a passenger and not a driver. And as others have said, sometimes it’s recording a trip to a location but not returning and if I’m with my husband then we both get the trips and mileage even if I state I’m the passenger.
It’s as great as you’d expect from your insurance
Been using for about a month and so far I’m not getting the bugs with hard brakes or acceleration. I do live in a smaller town with little traffic and a short commute, which I feel is kind of ideal considering the demands of the program. The main bugs I’ve noticed are with recording trips that aren’t mine and auto marking them as mine (I take a daily parking shuttle to my job) and the idle time either recording really high or just being way too strict. I sit at two lights in my commute and occasionally a few more if I go into town or to the store. I’m still always more than double the green amount it seems. I can’t imagine living in even a little more urban area and trying to use this without a lot of issues even as a safe driver. Otherwise I find it pretty easy to use and track. It doesn’t really take much effort. I’m not sure how you have to drive to get their advertised 40% but it must basically be down the block and back daily. I’m guessing most people land between 15-25%. Still better than nothing. Hope you don’t have anywhere to go!
Reports erroneous data
I have used the mobile app on my phone for a couple months now and have noticed that it incorrectly logs rapid acceleration/hard braking events. On occasions where I have had to accelerate and merge into oncoming traffic, it counted each event as 2 events. As for other acceleration/hard braking events, it seems to be a bit screwy but I think the app is detecting nearby WiFi networks and dropping the app and then reconnecting and counting that as multiple events for each time it drops/connects. It has recorded events where there has been no change in speed. As for the total number of miles it records I have not verified that against reality but since the app is on a mobile phone and goes wherever you go in whatever vehicle you are in, with a friend, public transportation, etc, you need to be diligent verifying it’s your trip and/or you are driving your car insured by your policy. Otherwise the mileage and whatever happens on that trip will be counted against you. The device that is installed in the vehicle might be a better choice.
