While driving, Bouncie operates entirely from the power provided by the OBD2 port. In the first five seconds of turning on your vehicle, you should see lights inside of Bouncie.

While the vehicle is parked, Bouncie enters into a low-power mode where it monitors the health of the vehicle's battery, and periodically checks in with our servers to report its operational status, cell-network availability, and update its location.

The app always shows the vehicle's location and device health, even when the vehicle is off.
