Our audio library is regularly improved and new sounds are added in every app update.

You can unlock these expansive sounds once you collect enough spheres. You collect spheres by using the App when driving. Once the sound is unlocked it is forever yours.
Does the App respond to my car’s acceleration and deceleration?
Yes, that’s exactly what it does in real time. Take it further by connecting OBDLink MX+; the App reads precise signals such as EV speed and gas pedal position, allowing you to rev in Park.
How do I ensure the App reads my car motion precisely?
For best performance, every time you start your ride attach your phone to a car phone holder and choose the performance audio while in Park. Keep your phone attached for the duration of the drive. You can change the sound as many times as you’d like even in Drive. If you have an OBD Link MX+ you can bypass the above guide.
3rd Party Tech FAQ
How do I set the OBDLink MX+ and Creative BT-W3 up?
Can I use other OBD tools?
The App currently works with the OBDLink MX+ only.
Can I connect the speaker through Bluetooth instead of using the Creative BT-W3 audio transmitter?
Yes, you can use Bluetooth but we encourage against it for car motion audio. Creative BT-W3 uses superior aptX LL Technology which is highly recommended for a seamless, delay-free audio driving experience. However, if you use the speaker to playback music Bluetooth is sufficient.
Do you work with OBDLink and Creative Labs?
We don't have any commercial association with OBDLink or Creative Labs. We discovered during testing that these two brand's products work best with most devices and provide top notch quality.
