About GasBuddy Drives
Drives is a new way to save with GasBuddy. It will help you keep track of your driving habits and make small suggestions on how to save more on fuel.
To access the Drives section of the app select My Car at the bottom of the app, then tap Drives. From there, tap Turn Drives On.
Each drive can be selected individually to show more detail such as time spent, and any hard brake, accelerations, or speeding that may have adversely affected your fuel efficiency on a given drive.
GasBuddy is able to detect speeding, braking, and acceleration through a combination of geo-coordinates, gyroscope, and accelerometer information that your phone already tracks.
Note: A drive is detected after approximately 2 minutes of constant motion and stops detecting after approximately 2 minutes of stillness. This accommodates for things like traffic lights which may cause you to stop for a while, but not be the end of your drive.
Deleting a Drive
Tap the individual drive in the list, then tap Delete This Drive, at the bottom of the page.
Turning Drives off
There are two ways to turn Drives off:
- Tap the settings icon in the top, right-hand corner of the Drives page. Then under Drives, select the Automatic Drive Logging toggle.
- In the general app Settings (outside of the Drives page), tap Location Usage, then toggle Trips off.
