CarDroid – First Android Vehicle Monitoring Device

Make your car smart with CarDroid, an in-vehicle device based on Android OS. CarDroid adds a lot of new features to your car. It allows you to take care of your relatives, analyze driver’s behavior on the road, receive emergency notifications, protect your car from theft, check vehicle data and save money on fuel and insurance companies. It’s a complex programmable solution connected to a cloud-based platform for data storage and visualisation. CarDroid is an all-sufficient computer which analyzes vehicle data and driver’s behaviour and sends it to a personal cloud account. Our unique feature ESNaR (Emergency Situation Notification and Reconstruction) allows you to receive an instant notification if a car gets into an accident. Thus, you can be sure your friends and relatives are safe and always know when they need help. With ESNaR you can also reconstruct an emergency situation with a car 3D model in your web account. Be there when they need you!

@ Chocolate, have you updated the software on CarDroid? The issue was fixed long time ago. Please insert a SIM card with Internet on it and leave the device turned on for a couple of hours, it will update itself automatically.

Review from Kickstarter
I removed the cardroid from my car after it drained my battery over one day of being parked. What use is the motion detector if CarDroid drains the car battery? I have not put my CarDroid back in since and it doesn't look like you've come up with a fix yet?

Dear Jose,
First of all, we really sorry for such a hideous start of your week.
We do appreciate your feedback, as any of our backers. Our engineers and testers are already checking possible reasons for the issue you had, as we never faced such troubles within testing process.
Meanwhile, please do not leave the device in the OBD port of your vehicle for a long time when you do not drive to minimize any exposure until the testing is finished.
We will keep you in the loop via email you mentioned before.
Any questions, please let us know. We are always happy to support our backers.
Kind Regards,
UonMap Team

So, I found my first issue. I didn't move my car over the weekend, and went to get in today only to find out that the battery was dead. Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 2014, everything set to auto, never had this issue before. I'm waiting for roadside assistance to come and start up my car. I will update once I go a couple of days without the cardroid and confirm (I'm certain) that it was the reason for the hideous start of my week.

@Heather K B. First of all, let us thank you for your attention to UonMap project and for your comments, as they help us to become better. As it sometimes may happen, our website had a technical glitch with “Contact us” form which it took you so much time to fill in. Unfortunately, we have not received the information you sent, but now we have fixed the form. We always strive to do our best for our backers and customers. That is why we suggest different kinds of communication with us: email addresses, Facebook and Twitter pages. Kindly forward us the email you sent to UonMap support email address, as we never got anything form you the other day. We are always happy to support our backers with their inquires.

I also received my tracking number today, it does not say the carrier, but in my case it is DHL. You can try on the DHL tracking page:

Thank you. I did receive my tracking number today, however, you did not specify the carrier. Could you let me (us) know what carrier you used? I tried FedEx, UPS and USPS with the tracking number, and nothing popped up.

Review from Kickstarter
Ok, here it is. I'm an "Earliest Bird" backer. I received your request for the correct address on September 9th, and replied with the correct information on the same day. 11 days later, since I had received no reply, I wrote again to see if there was anything wrong. Today I still have no response from you, no tracking number, nothing.
I need some rapport here, please.

Review from Kickstarter
This is backer #95. I replied to your email requesting the correct shipping address and information, with the new address to ship to. Nobody ever replied, I tried again to confirm you had received the information, nothing. I need you to confirm that you have the correct shipping address, please. Thank you.

@Heather K B, your device has been already shipped out. If you still haven't received a tracking number, please expect the number in a couple of days. The tracking numbers are usually issued within 2 business days.

One month since your last update. From your last comment (a response to Jose Valenzuela), I understood that withing 30 days we would be getting our CarDroid, which is not the case. Care to give your backers an update/explanation and a conscious ETA? Regards.
UonMap
Review from Kickstarter
@Jose Valenzuela. Yes, you will. Please do not worry about your moving, we will contact you and confirm your address one more time right before shipping the CarDroid out.

From today's update, I gather we will be getting them within 30 days, right? Thank you.

@Heather K B, we wish we could have sent the devices when it was planned and we would be happy to tell you a certain date now, but unfortunately, it does not depend on us only. There are also our manufacturers and suppliers. The problem which occured was unexpected for us, but we are not discouraged and we are working on the problem and will fix it asap.

Review from Kickstarter
The update did not tell us when it will finally ship to us ?????

Review from Kickstarter
@Luis, one of our suppliers has provided a component of a poor quality and we are replacing it with a brand new component now. It is not a big deal and we hope it won't take much time.
We are looking forward to delivering an amazing product experience to all of you. Our early backers will of course have the priority and will receive their CarDroids first.

Hello,
According to your last comment here (from July 6) I'm guessing you already started shipping. Well we have a notification on the shipment? Tracking number?
I'm backer #34, am on the "The earliest bird" reward and have not seen any notification about shipment.
UonMap
Review from Kickstarter
@Jose Valenzuela, we will start shipping next week. Please confirm your address or send a new one. Also we are working to add more features to our Android and iOS app. Another release will be done next week also. CarDroid has Android on board having a lot of potential and we are working to add more and more features. Even after you get the device we will continue extend functions.
Jose Valenzuela
Review from Kickstarter
And, I found the app. No more questions here. Sorry about that.
Now, I would still love to hear if there are any updates with the shipping process.
I will be traveling soon, and would like to receive my CarDroid wherever I am then.

Hey guys, you mentioned that the Android App would be posted to Google Play in June. Well, it is July already, and there are no news yet. Could you update us on that, as well as the shipping?
Thank you.

Review from Kickstarter
@Terence Lim, we are working on Android app and plan to post it on Google Play this month. You can test our current beta version of the app. It has demo functions.
iOS version is already available on App Store.

Is the cardroid app available in Play store already?

Review from Kickstarter
so it is 8 weeks for most - is that until shipping from your end ? So most will get it in the 3rd month from now = AUGUST
UonMap
Review from Kickstarter
@Heather K B. Dear Heather, we understand your frustration. To be precise, the delay is 6 weeks for the earliest bird backers and 2 weeks for others, not 3 months. The mass production process is already in progress, just some improvements took time. We are doing our best to make CarDroid functions flawlessly and seamlessly because we want all our backers to be happy with what they will get. Some additional and better hardware is added into the device. We have managed to make the battery more powerful without any additional costs.
All the improvements make CarDroid more advanced with more features for free to all our backers. Now we are talking about several weeks, not months. From our regular updates you can see the device will be ready soon. Even our team is hardly waiting for CarDroid.

Can we get a beta or something for the Android (iJunk also) app?
UonMap
Review from Kickstarter
@Heather K B. Manufacturing and shipping will start at the end of March due to our partners had longer Chinese New Year holidays than we had planned. You should receive CarDroid in April. We are preparing an update to say that things are going quite good for this complicated project which combines OBD2 hardware and software, Android hardware and software, cloud based platform, iOS and Android apps.
