AAADrive will consume battery similar to other navigational apps as GPS must be set to always ON to accurately record your journeys. When AAADrive is not recording a journey, the impact on your battery should be minimal. However, to help conserve your battery, AAADrive has several features available under Preferences:
  • Wi-Fi only setting will conserve your battery and save data charges by preventing data from being sent over the cellular network until a strong Wi-Fi signal is present.  
  • Battery Conservation will temporarily pause AAADrive once your battery level reaches the default of 20%. You can modify the default to 25% or 30% by selecting your preferred option in Preferences - Battery Conservation. AAADrive will automatically resume recording journeys once your smartphone’s battery exceeds 50%.  
  • Pause AAADrive feature will temporarily pause journey recording by selecting one of the timeframe options displayed to turn off AAADrive’s use of GPS (3 hours, 6 hours, 1 day). AAADrive functionality will automatically resume when the time period ends or you can press the Resume Recording button on the dashboard to restart journey recording.
