Settings and Instructions
Ok, you’ve got Drive Aware now. Great! But how do you use it? Here’s how…
You’ll hear alerts from the expertly verified Trinity™ 3.0 database as you drive, plus alerts for any approaching road hazards that have been recently reported.
If you are above the speed limit, your current speed will be shown in amber. During a camera alert, this will be red.
Easily monitor your speed as you drive.
Clear, concise alerts.
Or switch off you screen to just hear audio alerts.
Remember – only ever touch the screen when it is safe to do so – not when driving.
When you are safely parked, you can tap the cog to access all the Drive Aware settings.
Most are self explanatory with descriptions, but here’s a quick guide to more involved settings:
View and manage tags – use the GeoTag web interface to view any hazards you shared and update them with a detailed description. You’ll also see any feedback you’ve given. Open on your PC or tablet for a larger view.
Shorten voice alert – this removes the introductory voice description of the coming alert.
Manage alerts – choose which types of alert you’d like to hear.
Manage offline areas – store small (local) or large (500 mile) areas in the memory in advance, if you know you won’t have any internet connection as you drive.
Manage journeys – if you know your route in advance, you can use our web interface to save alerts for your whole journey. This is especially useful for longer, more remote trips. Access this via “View and manage tags”, then “Plan a journey”. Sync it to Drive Aware and it will download alerts along your chosen route.
Viewing and editing tags
You tagged a nasty pot hole – well done! Everyone approaching that will hear a “Road hazard” alert for a few days before it expires. But you can define what that hazard was and extend its lifespan. Just make sure you are stopped and it’s safe to do so.
In Settings, click “View and Manage Tags” to edit.
Open on Drive Aware or type the code into your tablet or computer for a bigger view.
Choose which tag to edit and then choose the best description from the drop down list.
You can see all the feedback you’ve given and you can add any new tags directly on the map by clicking Tag actions then Add a new Tag
We examine every tag and will add any extra descriptions that we feel are necessary.
