Battery Hog


Typically don't write reviews for apps. However, just switched back to State Farm and was shuffled into this Drive Safe and Save program and been running this for the last 2 weeks. Like everyone else, this app keeps the location services running in the background all the time. I understand the need to keep Bluetooth on in order to connect to the beacon. I leave that on with wifi and have been able to get 2 days of use on a single charge. Now I'm barely able to make it a day. I also understand the need for location services to be on, but set it up differently.
For example, with Google Maps they have a widget that launches location services so I can see the transit times home or to work. Once I go back to the main screen location services are turned back off. Basically set up the app so that it turns on locations services once it's in range of the beacon. The phone connects to the beacon and then turns on the location services. Once done driving and out of proximity of the beacon, location services shut off until the next trip. Clearly it's possible since many other apps already do this function.

The reason location services are “always on” is because the app uses them in the background so you do not need to interact with the app. If location services were only “when in use”, then the app would have to be up on the screen. The GPS portion of the location/Bluetooth services is only triggered once the beacon connects to the app. The Bluetooth (iBeacon) services are always on because the app runs in the background look for the beacon and trigger automatically when you start a trip. Drive Safe & Save is always working on ways to reduce battery consumption. ~ State Farm iOS Team

Needs improvement


Drive Safe & Save has potential, using a beacon to tell the app when to log so when you are not in your car driving it’s not used against you is great but it ends there. There are fundamental issues with how the current process works. It collects data for a month sending it off to State Farm to process it, then by the 20th of the following month you will receive a letter grade for each criteria for that prior month. All feedback is generic, no specific information is given as to what goes into earning your grade. What does A+ driving look like? Per trip feedback is a must. You need to incorporate all aspects of driver feedback into drive safe and save. Then trip by trip give me an average grade. During that trip stop by stop, turn by turn and each time I accelerate give me a data point on the map and grade it. To make this program useful give users measurable, meaningful and makable goals and timely feedback. Feel free to contact me about this I would love this program to be successful.

No problems with mine


Can you label which grades are being displayed under the “Compare Driving>Over Time” page. The graphs aren’t labeled for what they’re representing. For instance, the first graph won’t say if the grade is the Left Turns or Braking or Acceleration or anything... just graphing last grades over time without knowing which category the grades are for. You could figure it out with a bit of work, ie screen shot your grades and juxtapose them with new grades l, memorize all your grades, or go back and forth between menus to figure out which graph may correspond to your grades based on the current grades, but that should be unnecessary and would be simply fixed if you just label the graphs for the Grades they correspond with. Please.


Don’t know why so many people have so many issues seemingly mainly with the battery. I was weary before downloading it because of the reviews.

But I’ve had it for a couple of weeks and I don’t notice any difference in battery. The app isn’t CONSTANTLY running in the background determining my location. The app specifically stated the certain scenarios where location is determined and it didn’t include “while sittin’ on your couch and stuff.”
