    I got a new Chevy Silverado 2022 and transfered my drive safe beacon from my Ford 2021. I’m recording trips just fine but the old truck is listed on drive safe not the Chevy Silverado. Am I supposed to do something or will it eventually update to the new truck

    My son claims he left his phone in the car if his friend who was parked next to him at school) which has the drive safe app downloaded as directed with location settings as required, etc) he didn’t notice until his friend pulled off so my son followed the car with his phone in it and then proceeded home after retrieving the phone. However the trip that was recorded, recorded from school parking lot to the friend house and to home. Can this happen if his car was not in the vehicle for half the trip?
