More Detailed Stats & Driving Style Reports

On Monday every week we get a notification about last weeks driving. The first of every month we get a notification about the previous months driving.The stats the app provides for review are lack luster. I admittedly hardly view the stats, almost ignoring the notification every Monday, and this is probably the first or second monthly stat I've viewed too.

I think it's cool that we can see our driving habits against other Automatic drivers but I'm more interested in seeing my stats month to month, and even week to week. 

  • Your braking was 4% less aggressive this month! That's an average 1.3% improvement over the last 6 months.
  • You drove 212mi on the highway this month, that's 10% more than last month but your highway driving style was 7% less aggressive. Good job!
Then of course a chart that shows the last few months of details, such as city, highway, braking, and acceleration styles from each month. Perhaps details about how much we spent in gas, plus how many hard brakes and accelerations we had too.

It's very likely I'm letting my imagination run beyond what's trivial.

I also think it'd be really awesome if we could see aggregated stats of drivers on the same road at around the same times in these reports:
  • 50 other drivers experienced hard braking at the Intersection of Road B & Boulevard J between the hours of 1pm and 2pm last week/month.
  • We have a feeling you're a chill person because you're one of the top 5% least aggressive drivers on freeways during the morning rush hour in your area.
It'd be neat to see this on the app but I imagine this sort of data would translate well to the web dashboard too.

Just checked out Weekly Stats. These are interesting and comprehensive numbers! Can these be included in the Monthly Stats too?

Can I also add another suggestion to this? I have two vehicles with Automatic Pro adapters, and they are identical cars (the only difference being the door counts :) ) with identical engines. I would like to be able to compare the Driving style reports on the Labs with each other.

Point of clarification here, Automatic Classic is no longer in development. It is a different product than the Automatic Pro, which we intend to keep around for quite some time. :)

Ani, that's awesome news! What about the Automatic Labs on the web?

Do you mean the Automatic Web Dashboard? It admittedly has not been given the love it deserves, but we have no plans for sunsetting it anytime soon, or even at all. We do intend to update it in the future, but it's not top of the priority list. Though we're now owned by SiriusXM, the team that is actively working on Automatic products is still on the smaller side when compared to the overall number of employees we're now colleagues with. The dashboard will receive a much overdue revamp down the line.

I am ready to give it ALL THE LOVE it needs. :) I am stats nerds so I wish I could see more engine and performance data etc. but what it has right now is great. Just want to be able to compare driving styles between two of my cars rather than comparing them individually to a larger database.

My suggestion wasn't explicitly for the Dashboard, mine was for the Automatic Pro app but tacked on the Dashboard too since it's easier to digest historical data on a computer and weekly/monthly review stuff on the app, and this suggestion is more or less geared towards the weekly & monthly reports.
If the Monthly reports can be as detailed as the weekly ones that'd be awesome. Be even cool if we could get more detailed reports every month. Maybe track week-by-week how we did, sort of like the weekly one tracks how we did day-by-day. But I'd love to see day-by-day in Monthly reports too.
