While you are stationary, the Zendrive SDK efficiently monitors your location and speed while your app is ‘in the background’. When it detects your speed being greater than about 7 mph for more 50 to 100m, Drive Mode is activated. i.e. Detection of a sustained period of motion in time and space is required for Drive Mode to be activated. When your phone comes to rest for a sustained period of time again, Drive Mode automatically ends, switching off Collision Detection.
You can verify when Drive Mode is active by opening Smart24: you will see a banner on the home screen with ‘Drive in Progress’. As always, caution should be used when looking at your phone screen while actually driving.
Detection of a trip might be delayed if you do not have an active mobile network connection, for instance if you are in a tunnel or underground. This is because a mobile network connection is typically required to achieve high location accuracy required by Zendrive.
Occasionally Drive Mode is activated when you have a less accurate location or have a weak mobile network connection. We currently remove trips that are less than 60m in length from the Trip Details page.n
