Our Android team is speeding along with development and we're excited to announce that the Android app now includes the Fuel Level feature. Be sure to update your Android app for the latest & greatest!

In a nutshell:
  • Fuel level
  • Improved bluetooth reliability & connectivity
  • Assorted bug fixes & improvements
Below are some FAQ topics about the fuel level feature. Please note that unfortunately only about 1/2 of cars support this feature.

What is the Fuel Level Warning feature?

Why is the fuel level in the app so different from my car's readout?

Why don't I see the Fuel Level Warning feature even though my car has a fuel level sensor?

Hi everyone. I wanted to let you know that Android v1.2.1 was released and is now available in the Google Play Store. This release addresses several bugs that were causing missed trips, but a few issues are still lingering. For this reason, we recommend that you bring the app to the foreground in order to capture trips.

The Android team is already working on another small release to address these issues, so stay tuned for another announcement.

I still occasionally have issues with the app not automatically connecting to the link. I find that more often than not, I have to open the app and manually retry the connection in the app's menu.
This is with the Show status-bar notification option enabled.
Anecdotally, my Bluetooth to FM transmitter connects flawlessly, every time.
