Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. To provide best user experience, "find my vehicle" feature only activates the GPS in the background for about 10 seconds when the phone is disconnected from the controller. The power consumption is similar to opening the Maps App briefly to find your current location. You can also turn off this feature at any time.
1- Bug fixes.
2- Increased the max text count for captions.
Ratings and Reviews
Almost 5 stars
The LED's are awesome. The app is awesome. But the following need to be fixed ... 1) You can set the default color when the car starts, but you can't set the brightness.
2) The speed mode has a glitch. The colors adjust based on your car speed, even when the app is in the background. BUT ... if you're using another navigation app like google maps, for instance, or Uber driver, the speed mode eventually (not immediately) shuts down and the color becomes static. This only happens when there is another gps app being used in conjunction with XKchrome. I have gps tracking in the iPhone settings on"always" for XKchrome. The developer needs to fix the gps tracking to always adjust the light color based on speed, even if other apps are tracking gps.
Once the above two are fixed, this app will earn 5 stars from me.
Good not great
The lights seem to turn off for me when my phone goes into sleep mode. For example: riding the motorcycle at 30 and lights changed and normal with speed, stop at a light for a moment and the whole light system shuts off maybe because its not moving...... should be red like mashing the brakes.... the street light changes to green and off I go but my phone went into sleep mode so now the lights are not working. As soon as I touch my phone to reactivate the screen the lights come back on. YES I have the proper buttons applied for background etc. I have tried on this iphone 6 plus and ipad air 2.
Love the app, however it doesn’t allow me to play any music through the app, it say my content is drm protected, I have the best subscription I can get from Apple Music and nothing will work, however if you guys were to redesign the controller to include a microphone in it you could do music sync through the microphone of the controller, not the phone. Allowing for easier operation of the music sync. I have a undercarriage kit from OPT7 that has this technology, and Bluetooth connection to my phone. I’d buy the upgraded controller too please fix thank you
