I just ordered a second Automatic for my wife's car and I look forward to seeing you guys implement the ability to "invite others to use Automatic with your car when they drive." We will have two cars – an SUV and a 2-door economy with an automatic installed on each – and we will want the ability to track both of our driving stats on each one.

It would be super-useful is to show me how my wife is driving & vice-versa or to pull up alerts (engine, emergency) on either car in real-time. I'd love to see, at a quick glance, the stats on my car and my wifes, and how we both drive.

Also, when you do implement the "sharing" feature that you talk about in the 3rd item on your QA page, how will you handle the situation where my wife and I are both in the car with both of our phones on us (assuming that both have bluetooth on)?

Hi Chandler,

Thanks for your feedback. Now that we've released the first version of Multi-user with our 1.0 app, you can read up on it here.

So, in this case, you and your wife can both have accounts with the Links in both of your cars. The piece of your request that does not exist is that you'd see each other's data in your own apps.

I want to bump the family mode idea again. Having two cars and two links, I'd like to be able to see each car's stats and not only when I was driving.

I think there is some work to guard privacy of linked accounts. Maybe routes and gps would not be shared and only start and stop location and trip stats.

Anyways, I think you should start looking into this again as most people that get one link will want another one with this feature.

Thanks for the feedback, gregger. I agree that a family sharing mode would make a great addition to the app. Families with new teen drivers would especially find this useful. On that note, we are currently working on a teen driving product which may fulfill some of the features you're requesting (even if you're planning to use it with a spouse/parent rather than a child/teen). There's no ETA at the moment, but it's definitely in the works.
