MobileLutions Solves Battery Drain on MobiLoc for iPhone - Distracted Driving Software

Share Article

The iPhone is a great product, but the ability to effectively provide a background based app to enforce a cellphone policy and protect a company from distracted driving liability has been severely limited due to the battery drain caused by GPS technology. MobiLoc has solved the issue and now provides a solution having almost no battery impact while still protecting a company from distracted driving.

Just imagine, an iPhone app preventing distracted driving but not drain your battery. We call it MobiLoc.

MobileLutions announced today a new release of the iPhone MobiLoc software, running on iOS6 and above, incorporating a new proprietary algorithm that automatically stops the battery drain caused by the iPhone’s GPS location service. With this new release, a MobileLutions customer can be confident their employees will not have to be constantly charging the iPhone during the normal workday. In fact, in most cases the battery drain due to the MobiLoc distracted driving software is not even noticeable.

While many companies believe a solution needs to be implemented to protect their company and the public from the dangers and the liability of distracted driving, if the iPhone is hampered by having to be constantly charged, it prevents the workforce from adopting the technology.

Larry Eppard, MobileLutions founder, says, “The battery usage was solved in 2011 for Android and Blackberry but the iPhone had unique challenges. With today’s release of 6.1.3 those challenges have been met. There is absolutely no reason a company should not be using this solution on their iPhone.”

The MobiLoc solution is easy to implement on any number of smartphones used by your workforce. There are no downloads or discs, and nothing to plug in. This over-the-air technology is pushed straight to each smartphone, immediately keeping your employees and others safe from distracted driving. The protection travels with the phone, not the vehicle.

You can see the technology in person on April 19, 2013. The FCC is hosting a distracted driving focus day, to showcase what technology can do. MobileLutions has been invited and will be attending.

Also released in the 6.1.3 upgrade are new features in the MobiLoc portal:

  •     Instant notification of attempts to not use the software to administrators
  •     Server based notification to the phone when there are attempts to not use the software
  •     Server based tracking of phone configuration
  •     Receive reporting via email

The upgraded software is immediately available to all MobileLutions' customers.
