- Various Bug Fixes
I have only used this app a few times, but it does not perform as expected. The camera will not scan the VIN to add a new vehicle- this needs to be done manually. I do not see how to easily click on my vehicles to search for a recall. I have to go through another menu to and re-type the VIN to check for recalls.
I have enabled notifications on my iPhone, but have yet to receive... keep getting alert that notifications are disabled and I cannot sync because I need notifications enabled to do so..I have also emailed support, no luck there!! FIX NEEDED...
Too many notifications
It is currently pushing out notifications every few seconds for every type of car, not the one I have entered as having. VERY ANNOYING and useless. Do not recommend.
