Update 3: I've been using YOYO for a while now after the update they released, the update was painless and my VOYO's firmware updated by itself after driving a few minutes to the store. As of for what they promised in the update it's there. Sometimes i'll forget to open the app and i'll just turn on the app a few hours later when driving again and i remember and it'll load up the stuff from the past. So far i'm satisfied with this update as it allows me to forget about until i really need it. We'll see if they continue to release updates that improve the YOYO. As of for YOYO keep up the good work and thank you for the update! Please give android user their VOYO and their app, it must be so frustrated to not have the app and keep waiting.
@Eray, Please contact email@example.com for any questions about the support of your device.
How can I reset my account password? There is no reset password option in the application.
@William, We have been trying to get ahold of you. You didn't tell us what phone you are using. Are you using an iPhone?
@Alexander, We shipped your device back in December. Please use direct messages or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you did not receive your VOYO.
No unit shipped here either!
I have not received my VOYO yet either (and am using iOS). Was this supposed to have shipped?
@Jared, We are not shipping to backers with Android yet as we have not released an Android app. Check out Update #22 and let us know if you'd like to receive yours early.
I haven't received my VOYO yet, as it looks like everyone else has. All VOYOs have been shipped, right?
@Gerardo, were you able to update your firmware? If you're having difficulties, please contact our support team at email@example.com.
So probably another year or so for app development, plus bug fixes for Android = F***ed up.
Oh wait, they're still not done with IOS?
I am very dissapointed. That all of us Android people have to wait so long I have a voyo just sitting on the shelf. And to hear that you rather update the IOS version before even making a Android version is crazy.. I think some of us Android people should get some kind of refund or a perk of some sort for all this waiting we have to do..
Voyo i'm still waiting for that "update" to make my YOYO a bit better. What's the update on that?
Creator practicing "selective commenting" again..
@Daniel Peel - Couldn't agree more, especially about Android.
@shi shi, we have been trying to contact you. You never told us what phone you're using. Are you using iPhone?
@Daniel Peel - THANK YOU!!!
I'm just hoping that all the features of this aren't obsolete by the time more people can use it... when this was first started... most of these were new... now Automatic has a 3G option that I don't even need a phone for... so quickly... the "advanced" features of this product... are starting to become standard features of your competitors before yours even hits the market... (I'm not saying that was an option for this product) but with cars coming with auto unlocks and other features... standard now... the extra features of this.. aren't much different... and the repeated push back of the Android community while you push yet another update to the iOS side... is well... short sighted. At this point.. I wish you had never said you would have an android app available so then I wouldn't have backed it. I really hope that by the time I see it... I'm not left feeling like it's old tech. Yes I know I told you to not ship it to me yet... and that's because.. well I can't use it.. since I don't use iPhones.
I do hope it works out for both of us...
did you ship out the iphone version?????? its a year now.
@Steven Wang @Mark Lamb, we are sending out a shipment this week. If you do not receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with tracking information, please contact us directly through private message.
@Brian Emily and all backers who need to update vehicle or address information, please contact us directly.
@Sean Reynolds, we're currently working on implementing data buffering in an OTA update which will allow the VOYO to update the app with stored trip information. If you have any questions or are experiencing issues... or just want to know the many other ways the app can be useful to you, please contact our support team at email@example.com. They're standing by to help you.
Any updates on the app? I realize some folks don't even have their VOYOs yet (you aren't missing much) - but it would still be nice to know that increased functionality is on the way soon...
This product is essentially useless to me because before embarking I have to launch and run the application. If I was going to use an app, there are other apps that can approximate much of this functionality such as WAZE... I thought that this device would LOG the data until I synced it just like a fitbit does.
In fact, I was thinking thous would be more like a fitbit for my car... Something I could plug in, forget about, until I want to answer a question about the past...
I wanted to answer a questions such as: What is my average drive time in the morning, vs the evening... is there an optimal time to leave my house to minimize my drive time...
If I have to have premeditate opening an application, I might as well just use a spreadsheet... or an application like WAZE... In fact I found that this product has to have the application running at all times to get any meaningful data out of the system... So I'm failing to see what the point of this hardware device really is...
I can tell you what it it...
My vehicle has changed from a 2007 to a 2013 since the project was funded. How do I change this information so I can get my item sooner?
I pledged the three pack with a 2005(Camry), 2007(Corolla), and a 2009(Corolla).
When can I expect my Pacer package?
I have still not received anything. could you please give me an update? thx
@Jared, We do not have a timeline on the Android app but we are working on getting it out as soon as we can.
How far away is the release for Android?
@Mark Lamb, You told us you were driving a 2005. Please see update #21. If your vehicle has changed, you would need to let us know.
@Seth Johnson, Please send us a direct message about this.
@Mitch, We understand your frustration and sincerely apologize for the delays. As a Kickstarter backer of this project, you are one of the first to receive your reward. This is not a false statement. When timelines have changed, we have provided updates. Please see update #21 for information about vehicles 2007 and earlier. As well, please see our direct message to you.
Pacer backer here.. I share your sentiments.
Can you provide insight on how you will appropriately address the fulfillment requirements for your PACER backers to satisfy the terms of your Kickstarter creator agreement and avoid legal action from backers?
Hi Team VOYO,
In the Shipping and App Store Update you sent out on September 28, 2016 you said, "Our plan is to have all VOYO controllers for vehicles that are 2007 and newer mailed out by the end of October." I have a 2007 Audi A3 and still, three months later, have heard nothing about where my VOYO controller is.
I was one of your first backers as a PACER supporters and was originally told that I would receive my controller in February 2016. I can understand delays but your lack of communication and transparency after a full year is outrageous, especially when the PACER backer description says, "be one of the first to get your VOYO controller," and I have received nothing while others have gotten theirs.
The thing that is most frustrating is that I actually went to your booth at the SEMA Show and was blatantly lied to by the leaders of your company. This was during the first week of December and they told me some BS story about only starting delivery to backers with domestic vehicles 2008 and newer, a change in plan from your September update that wasn't shared with your backers through you rare updates until a full month later on December 6th.
So my question is, can you HONESTLY tell me when will I receive my controller? Like I said, I understand that delays happen and some things are outside of your control but all I am asking for is transparency in when I can expect to receive the controller I paid for by backing and supporting the vision of VOYO.
I believed in your company and have been patiently waiting for the day when I would be able to use your product and show it off to friends who I had hoped would become customers themselves. It is extremely frustrating to feel scammed by a company you helped support in becoming a reality.
At this point, I have lost all hope in Voyomotive.
I've moved since backing this project. I can't find a way to update my address to be sure to receive my unit. Please advise.
I have still not received anything. Are you guys still in business or is this cancelled ?
@Askari, We just sent you a message about this.
For Android backers who want to receive their VOYO in advance of the app, check out update 22!
I still haven't received anything. Can you guys confirm whether mine was sent out or if I still need to wait?
Still waiting for an Android update....
Thanks for the update. We have a fix for this. Our support team will be reaching out to you.
Update 2: After using the device for a couple more days it's gotten more annoying (and forgetting) to turn on the app every time I get into the car(as you need to refresh it every few hours for it to track anything). Also, the annoying brake stuff is annoying. It'll literally have a break warning for every break I make! I really hope the developers fix this device as it has great potential but just isn't worth what I paid for. As of now, thee has been no updates on the APP.
The creator reads comments.
@Bradley - Kiwi3 isn't a BTLE device, so it cannot work in the background. VOYO is BTLE.
I have a Kiwi3 and using Dash Command on iOS only works when the app is active. The same device and app on Android work in the background. So, could this limitation be because of iOS?
Of course, I'd like to prove it myself but I haven't gotten my VOYO yet.
I can confirm that i have gotten the VOYO! However, as everyone else has stated, the app will only track thing when the app is open. Nothing else works other than just normal stuff and even less than the 5 dollar ones
Another month has passed and no Android update.
Can you update us on 2006 and older cars please?
We're almost near the end of ANOTHER MONTH with NO UPDATE for early android backers..
