Is AARP SafeTrip compatible with my smartphone?
AARP SafeTrip should be compatible with most new or late-model iPhone and Android devices. However, certain models do not have the necessary hardware that AARP SafeTrip needs to record your trips. The best way to check your phone’s compatibility is to go to the Apple Store or Google Play (depending on your device) and search for “AARP SafeTrip.” If your phone has the necessary features to make it compatible with AARP SafeTrip, the app appears as downloadable in the Apple Store or Google Play.
Isn’t it dangerous to use the AARP SafeTrip app while driving?
AARP strongly recommends against looking at or interacting with your smartphone while driving. Because AARP SafeTrip works in the background as you drive, all data is recorded without the need to open the app or adjust any settings. Once your drive is over and you’re safely parked, you can review your trip results.
Does AARP SafeTrip require an internet connection?
Internet access is required to process and score any new trips. This internet connection can come from a Wi-Fi network or a cellular network. If the smartphone is not connected to the internet when new trip data is ready to be uploaded or newly scored trips are ready to be downloaded, the upload/download will happen automatically when the internet connection is available.
An active internet connection is not required to record trip data or view the results of prior trips.
