What Makes Sidekick Special?

1. Set it and forget it. Sidekick activates its sensors when you drive and goes into battery saving mode automatically after your trip has been completed.

2. Sensor information from different sources are combined and analyzed to maximize accuracy. Data from multiple mapping data providers (Google Maps, Bing Maps and OpenStreetMap) are also integrated to provide an unique user experience.

3. No ads. No distractions. Only useful and convenient features.

* Continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.
** Activity Time tracking requires iPhone 5s or later hardware that supports motion type detection.

What's New

Version 2.0.5
