How Good You Drive (Rollr Score)
I believe that this feature is specially made for parents. With this feature, you can check how many times the hard accel was done, how hard the break was pressed, how any time the car crossed the speed limit & also idling.
The app calculates all these parameters before showing the final score. The higher the better.
