I would also like multi-account support. I do not need overlaid data. Could you make it easier to login to multiple accounts and switch between them. A parent might need access to a teen driver's account, but not want them to see theirs.

Thanks for the feedback, Martin. A benefit of Pro is that a car owner can see all the car's trips and data in their app no matter who drove the car. But, as you point out, there are downsides when you want some users to see all data but others to only have access to their own. This is fairly complex functionality to build out. Our team has actually given quite a bit of thought to it and has some ideas for how to do it in an elegant way. I can see how in a family scenario with teen drivers this would be particularly useful! 

However, if your teen drives their own car, they can have their own account now and you can log into it from your own Automatic mobile app to see all their driving data. Just tap "Profile" on the main menu and then tap the "LOG OUT" button. You can also view their trips and driving data on the Web Dashboard on your computer.  In both cases, you'd just need them to share their account login info with you. Alternatively, you could have your teen set up IFTTT recipes to send you notifications when they're driving or to log their driving data to a spreadsheet - depending on what it is you wan to see.
