Works but needs improvement
I just had the recent product of drone installed in my car. There are some issues that I am having with some of the features. One of the features is being able to do the same commands with the Apple Watch as I can do with my phone. When I try to send a command to the system from the Apple Watch, it gives me an error every single time. Also, it would be a great idea for us to have a visual indicator showing that the car is in fact started. For example, the car symbol turning a different color. The lock and unlock command works, but it doesn't visually show that the car is locked. You've previously had the car symbol circled green with a lock symbol. When I open the app, it constantly shows that my car is unlocked. Having the remote start schedule named as it is can be misleading. If this feature doesn't start your car as scheduled, the name of it should be called "Start Reminder". The duration timer does disappear. We just ask you keep it visible and accurate. Other than that, the app and system works great! We all just hope you take in consideration of the problems we're having as valued customers. Hopefully there will be an update soon addressing these issues. Thank you!
Great product! Works perfectly
After reading the reviews below, I had to write one myself. Most of the problems people are having is with the actual install of the remote starter, not with the application on your phone. I think it's silly people blame the control of the remote starter for actual problems with the remote starter installation. If you're having an issue bring it back to the place that installed it in the first place. This app works well, it does change the color when the car is running, it does give you feedback, and cancelling the timer is very different than shutting the vehicle off. I have been using this drone mobile app since it first came out, it just keeps getting better... it works great, highly recommended.
Works decent, but needs a lot of work
I'm kind of shocked for as premium a setup as drone is, the mobile control portion really lacking. The remote start feature does work, as well as lock or unlock, but its essentially a mobile key fob.
There needs to be a set of visual 2-way indications of status. Is the car locked or unlocked, running or not, trunk open or closed, etc. it would be quite easy to implement so I don't understand why it hasn't already.
Also what is there is quite buggy. For instance if you remote start it begins the 25 min count, but if you close the app or lock your phone you loose all indication of timer. I have a sleep/alarm app that floats a banner over the home screen so you know its active, it seems common sense to put the timer there, and have it remain visible in the app, along with an icon or visual representation that the car is actually still running.
Similarly the car tends to re-lock itself if unlocked from the app more than about 2 minutes before I reach the car. Unlocking it from the app also messes with the auto takeover sequence and results in an occasional stall out during takeover.
If the dev team put a little time in, this system could be fantastic. However at this point it feels like an unpolished Beta release.
