    Check the Application Version and OS Requirements

    1. The application has to be the latest version for it to work smoothly. Open the Driver App and check for its version.

    2. Motive recommends certain OS for the flawless working of the app. Check if the OS of your mobile device is as per what Motive recommends.


    Unpair Mobile Device
