Simply plug it in and track the vehicle using your web account or mobile app. It took us a moment to find the OBD-II port in our vehicle, but once we did, the MOTOsafety clicked in as smoothly as a USB drive. Once the physical device is in your vehicle, you’ll want to be patient with the app. In our experience, it took about half an hour for the device to start communicating with our mobile device.
The mobile app is handy for watching your teen’s driving, but you can’t set any parameters from it. You’ll need the web portal to change settings like alerts, curfew hours, and geofences.
In addition to a regular “safety report card,” MOTOsafety also provides maintenance updates and reminders. This will keep your teen responsible for regular maintenance like oil changes and state inspections. We also like this feature for adult drivers who may not be as vigilant when it comes to regular vehicle maintenance.
Geofences can be large as your state or as small as your neighborhood. This is also a good feature for employees like delivery drivers and chauffeurs to ensure your vehicle is where it needs to be.
