Ratings and Reviews
Old RAC app available under another name. Read On.
If you want the old RAC app back it's still available as the RAC app just under another name, it's called "Driver Assist". Just search for this on the App Store and you will find it is the old RAC app supported by Barclays......just supported, they have nothing else to do with it other than the Supported By Barclays statement and their blue eagle logo on the app thumbnail. I now use this every day as it's the old RAC app complete with dots and incident list just like we all used previously, it can sometimes be a little slow to update but at least it's better than the RAC app. There are lots of positive reviews on Driver Assist, it would be good if any people that download it left positive reviews to make it more popular so they hopefully never shelve it, or update it to a crap version like the RAC app. At the same time leave a negative review on the RAC app to insist they change it back to how it was.
There are no adverts with the Driver Assist app and it's free! I won't bother with this new RAC app until they change it back to the old app with no stupid improvements and extras which are of no use. It's no wonder that there are so many negative reviews the new app is bland pointless rubbish!
Decent, but could do more
This is mainly a mapping tool, and to plan routes. Also allows you to see local traffic and cost of travelling. It has a 'rescue me' button that shows your location, but would be good if you could click this and then request RAC help through the app - as you have to remember the location the app tells you then ring the RAC to request help. Would likely make getting help a lot easier, and this is something the AA does quite well. Also would be good if you could add your membership card / details to the app and make changes- as well as add your membership card to Apple wallet for quick access.
*edit* also to add, would be good if you can access and see what member benefits you get with membership. As well as use the app to take advantage of these.
Improvement, up to a point.
Real time traffic issues are inoperable, due to a system fault, according to the App. Only since the update. Update 6 August. Following 2 App reinstalls , all appears to be working fine.
Why the need for the three symbols, indicating settings, et al, to remain on the screen? Facility to hide them would be beneficial. Update 6 August. My view on this remains. Would like to see facility whereby the symbols can be hidden.
Takes a while to formulate a route , irrespective of distance. Update 6 August. Now appears to be a tad faster.
Like the easier method of choosing an alternative route. Update 6 August. Works well, and much clearer.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
