I was thinking that it'd be cool if we had a selection of vehicle types to select from, in addition to the colors we can select for the car icon on the slider.

Also, possibility a color picker along with the basic color choices. The blue in the application doesn't match my car at all.

It's a little aesthetic thing, but it'd be neat! Right now it just shows a four door for everyone. I have a minivan!

Allowing users to have familiarity inside of the app is something small but nice.

Thanks for the suggestion, Mituna. We know it's important to pay attention to the little details as well as the big features! :)

This is really cute feature Mituna! Sounds like something we could do in a weekend hackathon.

Agreed! My car is orange, so I had to go with yellow as the closest shade.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
vehicle icon is wrong (and insulting).

I drive a Jeep Wrangler (and thats on your supported vehicle list). But the icon indicating the vehicle position on the map is a VW Beetle (in the Android app). Seriously, a Beetle? That has to be fixed.

Thanks for the feedback, Dan. I merged your topic with this related discussion on customizing car icons within the app.

Right now, the blue parking icon is the default icon for all users. Currently there's no way to customize it, but I'll pass this feedback along to our design team.

Thanks again for the idea!

This would be lovely. Instead of limiting us to preselected colors, just give us a color palette or wheel to choose from. It's pretty frustrating to me because my Fusion is Sunset Metallic, which is a very dark orange.

Thank you.

Also I'm on Android. Should I post or comment there instead?
