The YouDrive Tab from Hastings Direct offers a unique way to stay connected with your vehicle’s status, driving performance, and insurance details. Like any device, however, the battery may run low after consistent use. Below, we’ll discuss the steps to take when your YouDrive tab battery starts running low and how you can optimally manage it.
Notification of Low Battery
The YouDrive Tab will typically notify you when it is running low on battery. It’s crucial not to ignore these notifications. While the device may still function for a little while with low power, it is not advisable to let it drain completely, as this might impact its performance over time.
Charge Your Device Regularly
One of the most straightforward solutions is to ensure that you regularly charge your YouDrive Tab. If possible, make it a habit to charge it when you’re not driving. That could be overnight, during your work hours, or any other time when you’re not using the device.
Carry a Portable Charger
If your lifestyle or job requires you to be on the road frequently, it’s a good idea to invest in a portable charger. With this, you can recharge the YouDrive Tab on the go, ensuring that it remains operational even on long trips.
Always ensure your YouDrive Tab software is up-to-date. Software updates often include improvements to battery management and can help extend the life of your device.
If you’re consistently experiencing low battery life on your YouDrive Tab, even with regular charging and software updates, it might indicate a problem with the device. Reach out to Hastings Direct customer support for assistance. They can help troubleshoot the issue, and if necessary, replace the device.
Will My Insurance Coverage Remain Active if I Order a Replacement Battery for My YouDrive Tab?
Yes, your car insurance with Hastings Direct and the YouDrive service should remain active even if you order a replacement battery for your YouDrive Tab. Your coverage is not typically dependent on the device’s battery status but rather on your policy details and payment status.
However, it’s important to note that the device must be in working condition and installed in your vehicle for the YouDrive service to properly monitor your driving habits and provide accurate information. So, while ordering a replacement battery won’t affect your insurance, there may be a brief period where the device isn’t fully operational until the new battery is installed.
