@rterhune having any trouble with your car? If the smart device was built to receive, or at least acknowledge onboard faults which are signalled over the OBD-II connector, then it would make sense that the device is trying to tell you that there is an indicated fault. You would need an OBD-II reader to see the fault code, or, ask your car dealership service staff to check for any faults indicated by the OBD-II port.
I'm having the exact same issue. It started maybe a month ago, and yes, I have some error codes that come up with my VW Beetle, but until a month ago, it was just a single notification. Now, as soon as I start and drive my car, I get constant messages. VERY annoying because before it was just a single notification with the actual error. I love the device and have found it to be useful but this is really driving me crazy now
I have had Smart Drive for about a year now.
I was intrigued at the idea of my Vehicles being connected to my phone and getting updates on vehicle being tampered with and OBD II codes.
I have had it connected to multiple vehicles.
I was hoping there would have been an upate to the OS.
The tamper notification is very slow, I would get notification that I closed a door 20 minutes afterwards.
In that time the vehicle could be half way to USA.
The reviews online indicate the app shows fuel levels, mine does not.
On a scale of 10. I give it a 5.
Will probably not renew the contract when it expires.
I am pleased with the OBD II codes that inform me of any problems with the vehicle.
The family enjoyed the WiFi Hotspot.
I use the trip info to log my mileage for work.
Updating the OS or App, speed up the notification and I may consider keeping it longer.
Hello @GaylePort When I first got my smart drive it would not work/connect to the app.
After MANY phone calls to Help, I finally reached someone who actually knew what he was doing ( sorry I dont recall his name and SORRY I dont mean to say the others did not know what they were doing, Smart Drive was brand new then ). This person discovered my Serial number the sales person registered was not the same as what I had? it was off by one digit.
Thank you for your post and welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!
As a current subscriber of Rogers Smart Auto, I was also disappointed to hear that the service was no longer being offered for sale. It really is a pretty handy device!

Wow great business practice Rogers has. I purchased two of these devices in the summer from Rogers and no one said it was disconnected. I have a open ticket with support on getting over 700 messages a day on non existent faults for over 3 weeks. Calling Tech Support has been a waste of time.
