The ICEdot App is a comprehensive digital safety platform. It sends activity notifications with tracking links at the outset of an activity and further notification when an activity is completed. The app connects with the ICEdot Crash Sensor to monitor for critical forces consistent with head injury while you bike, ski, kayak, or go on an adventure. The sensor uses Bluetooth Low Energy, providing security and long battery life. When the sensor detects critical forces, it triggers the app to sound an alarm and begin the emergency countdown. If not cancelled, the countdown will conclude with the app notifying your pre-designated emergency contacts. They will be notified of your GPS coordinates over SMS text message.
Utilizing the tracking features requires use of your phone GPS. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Fixed incompatibility with iOS 11.3
Ratings and Reviews
Not compatible with iOS 11.3 in my experience
Be careful-the app crashes when I press the GO button after connecting to the sensor, or pressing Go Without Sensor button. You might think you are being monitored when you are not. Hoping the app gets updated soon
Absolute Horror Experience with the Product!
I ordered three IceDots last fall as Christmas gift for my family members. Having tried to bring them to life after the Christmas day, none of them would connect to any of three iPhones I tried them with. OK, so I emailed the IceDot support, and received a quick response from a John that I probably just hadn't charged the units properly. This triggered two weeks of trials of several methods that John suggested step by step (always accompanied by encouragement of a kind like "don't worry, we are working on this"), with zero result. After that, I three towel into the ring and wrote to John that I want the products replaced (mind you, I was decent enough not to ask for a simple refund), and if he kindly would let me know about the shipping address and the process. This happened in mid January, and since then and three emails laters, there has been a complete radio silence from IceDot. I have a feeling that I have been totally ripped off and three quite a few hundred dollars out the window.
Great concept But does not work
Great concept but the app does not function correcttly with new I-Phone upgrade. I purchased my ICEdot last year and have had this issue since I received the product. The app works fine when the phone is awake and the app is open or running in the background, but once the phone returnes to standby with the app running the sensor will not wake the phone up and start the countdown if the sensor sees a crash. I contacted ICEdot, they are aware of the issue and say its a problem with the Apple IOS software update, its not their issue, and that the next IOS update should fix the problem if enough people report this to Apple. I have reported this to Apple, and apple says the issue is with the software developer's product, no application update is required, the developer needs to fix their software. This leaves us with a non-functional product, in the middle between ICEdot and Apple, out the investment in the product, with no solution to get the sensor working correctly.
