Volkswagen brings you SmileDrive™ -- the first social app to maximize fun on every drive, by using your favorite Google products and services along the way.*

Whether you’re commuting to work or traveling cross-country, SmileDrive records your drives, awards you stickers for unique accomplishments (such as going on a holiday trip or driving on an unusually cold day), and turns road trips into shareable stories. The app can be used with any vehicle, even if it’s not a Volkswagen.

・Easily pairs with your car’s Bluetooth and runs in the background, so you don’t have to worry about activating the app every time you drive.

・You’ll get a Smile Score and drive summary at the end of each ride. The score is based on factors like location, distance, time and weather and you can get things like Stickers or Punches if you unlock achievements.

・For trips versus everyday drives, you can create a Smilecast. Name the trip, tag passengers and share with friends so they can see your route, photos and comments, along the way. When your trip is over, all the data is seamlessly collected into a video you can share.

・There’s also a handy Find My Car feature. Get directions to your vehicle’s last parked location.

    Just can't use it because my car doesn't appear on it.

    App used to only activate GPS when connected to the Bluetooth radio associated with my car. In the last week my GPS location has been fetched by the app every 30 seconds resulting in SmileDrive using 60% of my battery. On the plus side it records drives pretty well since it only reports the times it's actually connected to Bluetooth to my G+ account.

    The concept is interesting, but as I don't have a car, I feel a bit left out. I know that this is made by a car company, but it'd be great to add motorcycles to the list, so I don't have to lie about what I operate.

    Once in a great while it will leave GPS active when I'm not driving. A force-close would fix it, but not this time apparently. Have to uninstall
