One thing I would like to see is some analytics applied to my data, and that data fed back to me in daily ideas or suggestions or maybe maps. For example, my Jawbone UP will tell me that I often am a lot more active if I have a short night of sleep the night before (before travel actually...) In a similar way it would be great if Automatic app could map my hard accelerations and if it finds spots that are regular "offending areas" it can tell me, "You often have hard accels when you turn left from this to this spot. Maybe avoid that intersection?" etc.

Greetings, Scott. This idea sounds very similar to an idea we received on Twitter, ha! Thanks for expanding on it here in the community. I think this feature could hold a lot of potential for commuters or users who drive the same route frequently. What you're describing is almost like an "optimized route" for fuel efficiency.

I'll definitely share your thoughts with the team, and thanks again for sharing!

An update for you, Scott. We're not planning to add this functionality to the app, but the web dashboard does allow you to view your driving performance over time. With this in mind, you can review all of your past hard alerts and get a sense of the streets/intersections that prove "problematic" for you.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled IDEA: Alert me when approaching problem areas where I brake too hard or accellera....

IDEA: I seem to have certain problem areas where I tend to stop short (and lose points) on my daily commute. Would it be possible to have Automatic give me a specific alert to remind me I'm coming up to one of these problem areas?

Thanks for the idea, David. We don't have plans to add alerts for "trouble spots" but you can use the web dashboard to view past hard alerts (over a period of time). More details above.
