No – With the release of MOTOVATE 3.0, you can now use the app without any hardware.

Here is the complete list of options for driving with the MOTOVATE app:

iPhone Options:
1. TextNinja OBDII BTLE Device – This is still recommended as there are many benefits to using your car’s data and Bluetooth.
2. No-Hardware – This is a newly released option that uses a combination of your iPhone’s built-in sensors to determine that you’re driving and record trip data.

Android:
1. TextNinja OBDII BTLE Device – This is still recommended as there are many benefits to using your car’s data and Bluetooth.
2. Other OBDII BT Devices – If you already have a device or use a legacy Bluetooth OBDII adapter, you can set the MOTOVATE app on Android to use this data for recording trips.
3. Hands-Free Bluetooth or Your Car’s Built-in Bluetooth – If you use either of these options while driving, you can setup the app on Android to use these connection events to engage the app and record the trip.
4. No-Hardware – This is a newly released option that uses a combination of your Android phone’s built-in sensors to determine that you’re driving and record trip data.
