Works great but, why landscape?!
The app works as promised, setup was easy and checking in on my car is super simple. But I'm really puzzled by the decision to force the user into a landscape orientation. The only apps that force me to use my phone in landscape are games, and this is not a game. Especially on iPhone X, landscape is claustrophobic and uncomfortable to use. Bizarre! Please offer portrait mode!
This last bit has nothing to do with the app or my rating of the app, but please please offer a magnetic mounting solution that allows for placement in other areas, like the top of the windsheild. Even an adapter that works with the RAM system of mounts would be amazing. I have two cars, and the mounts provided don't work well with either of them. Also, a power adapter for a 12V power port is needed! One of my cars does not have an ODB2 port (Tesla Model 3). While taking about alternative mounts, software should allow for a setting that understands camera is mounted upside-down and rotates clips automatically.
You guys have built a great foundation. Very happy with the camera itself. Just needs some options!

Thanks for the feedback - keep an eye out for our next update ;)
One year later review....
Don’t buy this product! Instead of improving with software updates and hardware revisions, this product actually has gotten worse. 1. From day one there has been an issue with Bluetooth connectivity and the Geo fencing area that the manufacturer still refuses to address. Because of this you will receive an alert every time you enter your own vehicle. No one needs a notification to tell them they’re entering their own vehicle! The manufacturers fix.... advise you to turn off the notifications. :( This defeats the security features of the camera. Not only defeating a security feature but the manufacture is still advertising this as one of their main selling features, deceiving customers. Their newest hardware revision took what was originally a very sturdy camera mount, a solid camera housing and replaced it with cheap injection molded plastic. Their newest revision of the camera and mount is now cheap, flimsy and extremely prone to vibration. This newest revision now means that a lot of your footage is going to be unusable. What they also don’t tell you unless you read the fine print is that they restrict the amount of footage you can download from the camera. Restricting you to only getting video clips that are just a few minutes long. Do your own homework and research, but I would definitely not recommend buying this camera.
As a small business owner I put a lot of miles on my Jeep everyday. The poor drivers and people running across the street is ridiculous! With OWL I feel perfectly safe that I can have definitive proof of what happened. I also live in a not so nice neighborhood and the blinking light keeps crooks away. I love waking up in the morning and not seeing an alert from OWL, which means my vehicle has not been disturbed all night. Worth every penny!!!!
4 month update: Two days ago my camera had connectivity issues and after about 30 minutes of help from the chat option on the app ( which was almost instantaneous) they decided to send out a new camera. I agreed, but I feel so much more secure with this camera in my car. (I drive a lot, in the city everyday and people are constantly making bad choices that could change everything in an instant.) So, I worried about how long I would have to wait. ONE DAY 🎉☺️ I got the new one in one day. This is customer service. This is how companies prosper and gain loyal customers like me. This is how I run my company and I know when you do things right and stand by your product people stay, for years. They have my complete support!
