Hi everyone.

I wonder if anyone can give me some advice. I use an android phone in my car with followmee app. It works good.

I have the app set up in vehicle mode so the app runs when the battery is charging. The charger is connected to the acc power in my car so when the car is running, the app is running and the phone is charging.

If the car is not used over the weekend, the phone is dead and the only way to get it working again is to remove the phone, charge it and re-install the phone (which is a real pain)

This happens a lot and is a real nuisance.
Does anyone know a better way to do this?

I was thinking of having the charger connected to constant power (charging all the time) but the app would use way too much data and cause overages on my account.

I really appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance!

Best of the Best

If you connect the phone to constant power, you can disable the full-time vehicle tracking device setting, and set the power saving mode to medium. This will cut down your data.
