No matter where you live,
This week it launched a new Trips feature that pinpoints exactly where and when you've been guilty of fuel-inefficient driving. The idea being that if you can see that you always brake too hard when you're
At the end of each drive you make with the app you'll get an assessment of your driving based on a three-tier system. You'll either have your trip designated as "great," "not bad," or "not great."
Along with that rating, you'll also get a summary of your trip with the date of your journey, time of day and distance driven as well as a map that highlights exactly where you ran into trouble during your trip and what you were doing to cause it.
It's not as good as knowing in real time what you're doing to burn through your tank. If you're interested in that, I'd recommend giving Dash or Automatic a try (both of which require a device connected to your OBD sensor to give that info in real time).
If you're not quite ready to buy car-monitoring hardware, then this can be a great solution to at least get a feel for where it's all going wrong.
