YAB – Never Forget Where You Parked

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2016-07-18

Locating your car gets far better with YAB. Now all you have to do is park, turn your key, and YAB will get you to where you are going next. This intelligent device is designed to find your parked car from the palm of your hand. You simply need to plug YAB into a USB port or a car charger and pair it with the YAB app for the first time. It’s as easy as it sounds. Park, turn your key, and YAB will sync your location to the app. Not only this, but it will also remind you when your parking meter is about to go off! Parking time made simple for you. Just select a regular reminder or customize the timer amount and you’re good to go. A smart device your car is in need of.

Hi Moshe, thanks for reaching out. We just messaged you the links to the YAB apps. The iPhone app is not optimized for iPhoneX but it should not have problems running on the phone. Please let us know your feedback or if you have any questions.

Hi @Janie, thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately, we have not yet included the support for Apple Watch Series 3. We will include this in our future improvements. Thanks again for your feedback. Please let us know if you have any other suggestions or questions.

Review from Kickstarter
@Creator, is the YAB app currently not working with Apple Watch Series 3? I've tried everything from unistalling the app both on my watch & phone, shutting down the phone and then reinstalling the app again (2wice), and I also reset my network settings just in case but to no avail. Thank you & hope to hear from someone soon.

Thanks for the message David. We will have our next update in a few months when we expect to have some bugs fixed. Please let us know if you have any questions in the meantime!

Hi Chul, Thanks very much for contacting. Here is the last tracking number we have in our records for you: UA371679709US. Unfortunately, the postal service only provides tracking information within the USA. Please contact your local post office and ask if they can track your package. We will also contact the post office in the US and will let you know if they could provide any information.

Dear creator,
I still did not get your product. Please check out. Terry Chul Rhee

Hi Janie, Yes, that is exactly right. The dongle needs to be close to the smartphone when the engine shuts off as it uses the GPS of the paired smartphone to find the location. The range depends on the type of smartphone but it is usually less than 10-20 feet. So unfortunately, it does not work as a GPS tracker. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
Janie Gonzalez
Review from Kickstarter
@Creator, does my phone need to be in the proximity of the dongle to be able to "communicate" with my phone and let it know where it is? If so how many feet/miles is the range? I ask because I'm wondering if I can use it as a GPS tracker/locator as I'm trying to sell one of my vehicles (in installments) and that way I can keep tabs on it. Thank you

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Kelley, Thanks for your message and sorry for your experience. Please make sure that the Bluetooth, GPS, location services, and cellular network of your smartphone are enabled and the app has permission to access them. Also, please open the app at least once a week to prevent the OS from terminating the app, and to provide accurate location data. If the problem still exists, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Please let us know how it goes and if you have any questions. Thanks!

Review from Kickstarter
I think I've had it work correctly twice but the rest of the time it tells me I am hundred or thousand miles away from my car. :(

Hi Alvin, Thank you for contacting us. Yes, YAB does work in Asia. The problem you faced could be due to the network availability. For the best results, you may need to enable the GPS as well as the data (LTE) of your smartphone. Also, please keep the app running in the background which helps the app find the location faster. Please let us know if you still faced the same problem.
Alvin
Review from Kickstarter
Hi there, Does this work in Asia? I received the dongle and plugged it in but when I turned off the engine, the car location was saved as somewhere off the coast of Africa! Is this some bug? I use a Samsung smartphone. Regards,
Alvin

Hi David, We apologize for your experience. We are working on the Android version to solve the issues. The progress is slow unfortunately. We expect to have a better version out in a few months. As you mentioned, it needs a lot of work and each Android version and smartphone should be tested separately. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for the app.

Review from Kickstarter
When are we getting an app update? It's not usable with the current version, needs a lot of work!

Review from Kickstarter
Hello Janie, Thanks for contacting! We have some instructions in these two pages that might be helpful, but unfortunately we have not made videos on how to use the apps: https://www.parto-tech.com/yab, https://www.parto-tech.com/get-started. Regarding the routing, if you are using the iPhone version, there is a Route button on the top right corner that would show directions from your current location to the car's location in the iPhone Maps app. For the Android version, you can do the same by tapping on the car's location and then tapping on the arrow button, which would show the directions on the Google Maps. Hope this answered your question. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you!

Hello, I've searched YouTube for a "how to" video of YAB but I can't find any at all. I'm having trouble with the app so I was trying to see if I was doing something wrong. The gps seems to be way off & it's not like it's as shown on your promo video where the guy sees a router back to exact parking spot while looking for his car. This is the trouble I'm having. Is it not like that on the app?

Hello Miquel, Thanks for contacting us! We sent a couple messages/emails to you, however it seems you have not received them. Since USPS requires us to provide a phone number for international shipping, we are wondering if you could let us know the best phone number we can use for this purpose. You may directly message us in Kickstarter or simply email us at info@Parto-Tech.com. Thank you!

Hello Ben,
Thanks for the feedback! We are working on the apps to improve them and for sure will try our best to make them as efficient as possible. Please let us know if you had any other suggestions. Thanks again.

Hello, It's an iPhone 7. The battery usage states that it is only using 5% but when I delete the app, the drainage is a lot less.
Parto-Tech
Review from Kickstarter
Thanks for your feedback, Ben! We have seen different battery usage with different smartphones, and it should not use more than 10 percent of your battery. We will appreciate it if you let us know the iPhone model and the percentage of the battery usage in your case (General->Usage->Battery Usage). Regarding the notification, the first one is when it is trying to save the location and the second one is to confirm that the location saved correctly. We will change this to one notification for the next version. Thanks again for your feedback!
Ben Gorman
Review from Kickstarter
The app drains my iPhone battery quite badly. It is also sending notifications twice.

Merci pour vos commentaires, Fabrice! Nous travaillons constamment sur l'application Android pour l'améliorer. Il fonctionne maintenant bien sur de nombreux périphériques que nous avons réglé tous les problèmes que Google nous a signalés. Cependant, nous testons encore l'application sur différents périphériques et si vous pouviez nous donner des détails sur l'endroit où l'application ne fonctionne pas correctement, nous pouvons améliorer et résoudre plus rapidement les problèmes. Merci encore et nous vous prions de nous excuser pour les désagréments occasionnés.

@Parto-Tech:
J'ai bien reçu mes 2 YAB mais votre application Android sur Samsung S6 ne fonctionne pas malgré la mise à jour...
Produit totalement inutile pour le moment.
Quand pourrais-je profiter pleinement de ce produit?
Merci de votre réponse.

@Peter we're happy you received your YAB. Could you let us know what you are disappointed with?

Thank you for your comment. We apologize for the inconvenience. We have fixed this problem in the new version. Please update the app from Google Play and let us know if the problem still exists.

Review from Kickstarter
Android app keeps spamming over and over that it saved location
So annoying I had to uninstall
It would show a toast notification and make a noise every 5 seconds
Parto-Tech
Review from Kickstarter
Yes, there is no light on the device and it should only save the location when the engine is switched off. However, there are several Android devices that do not work properly with current version of the app. We are working on fixing the problem for the next version.
Nigel Buckton
Review from Kickstarter
After a restart it now works and there is no light. Should it be saving my location history every 4 seconds (and bleeping) or only when the engine is switched off?
Nigel Buckton
Review from Kickstarter
Yes customs! Then arrived in 2 days. I got a bargain at £11.58 customs fee then, however I have plugged it in the car and the app does not seem to see it. I assume being Bluetooth I expect to see a blue light too ? I will try again though.
Chris Watts
Review from Kickstarter
I can confirm that the £12.68 is probably your YAB as I've received mine and that was what customs charged.
Parto-Tech
Review from Kickstarter
Oh sorry to hear that. We hope you receive your YAB very soon!
Bruce Davies
Review from Kickstarter
On customs, here in U.K. I've just been charged £12.68 (approx €15) for an item to clear customs. Now waiting 2 days before confirming it is my Yab. Grrrrrr!

Hello YAB,
I have paid 56$ for 2 YAB and shipping to Switzerland.
I have received two mini box today.
The first with 1 YAB and the second with NOTHING...
Can you give me the reason?
I have paid for 2 and have only 1...
56$ is expensive for only one...
Thanks for answer ASAP.
Best Regards from Switzerland.

We apologize for any inconvenience, Greg. It seems that there were no problems with the iPhone app. However, there are several issues reported to us for the Android version and we are working on fixing them in the next version.

Well I have to say this was a very disappointing product! I'm not impressed and feel I wasted money on something that's not living up to the hype!

Review from Kickstarter
Thanks for your comment, Jason! There is a getting started instruction on www.parto-tech.com/get-started. However, there are not specific details there on how the app works. Yes, that's totally right; the re-pin button manually changes the last pinpointed location to the new location found with GPS in case it was saved inaccurately.
Jason Humm
Review from Kickstarter
Are there any instructions for the app? Unclear on exactly what the re-pin button does. Does that allow you to manually tag where you parked in case of inaccurate GPS location?

I just received mine in the US (Maryland). App (Android) crashed a few times. Had to uninstall and reinstall. Guess that is to be expected for a fresh rollout.

Hi David! Yes, we set the product value the same price as you have purchased it e.g. $29 if you have purchased one YAB. Please let us know if you have any other question, and thanks again for your support!

Review from Kickstarter
Received the tracking for my package. Anyone from US already got it? To YAB crew, for UE shippings did you set a product value? If yes how much? Or its marked as gift or promotional? Just asking in case it's stopped on customs. Thanks!
