To ensure the best possible experience with CrashDetech, please follow the guidelines below:


Is Trip Monitoring enabled and working correctly?

  • Crash Detection is only possible whilst Trip Monitoring is active. Please refer to our Trip Monitoring Best Practices guide.
  • Ensure your device is configured correctly at all times, reference your device's troubleshooting guide:
  • We suggest that you regularly open the app to view the last trips monitored. 


Is Background App Refresh/Data "On" for CrashDetech?


Crash Detection IS NOT possible if mobile data is not available/enabled on your device, please refer to Crash Detection Limitations


You can verify your background refresh/data settings:

  • on iOS by going to Settings > General > Background App Refresh > CrashDetech > On
  • on iOS by going to Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data > CrashDetech > On
  • on Android by going to Settings > Wireless & networks > Data usage > Cellular data > On
  • on Android, from both the Data Usage Menu icon (this can look different depending on device) and the CrashDetech icon under App usage, make sure "Restrict background data" is unchecked. Additionally, if you’ve set a cellular data limit, make sure that you have not crossed it recently.


Is your device restricting background data, app, or battery usage?


Some default settings/apps on Android devices are designed to automatically shut down apps and will prevent CrashDetech's from running in the background of your device. This can cause gaps in your trip history, but is easily prevented. Use this helpful guide to determine why you're missing trips in Android: Why am I missing trips in Android?

  • Third-party apps on iOS and Android that attempt to be Memory boosting, Data compression, task-killing, battery-saving, anti-virus or app management apps can interfere with CrashDetech. Please disable them (or add CrashDetech to the third-party app's Whitelist or Ignore List).
