Guardian Mode

What is Guardian Mode?

Guardian Mode allows you to set speed and location limitations for your vehicle. Your iQ will send a notification when these limits are breached. This allows you to monitor your car's activity when driven by valets, mechanics and other drivers. 

How does Guardian Mode work?

Speed Limit Alerts

Speed Limit Alerts allow you to set a speed limit for your iQ.  If your iQ detects that it is travelling at a speed which is faster than the limit that you have set, then it will send you a notification. 

After sending a Speed Limit Alert notification your iQ will continue to monitor its speed but will not send another notification for the next five minutes.  After five minutes, if your car is still travelling at a speed faster than the speed limit you have set, it will send another notification.

Location Notifications

Location Alerts allow you to specify an area on a map which your iQ will monitor. If your iQ detects that it has travelled out of or into the area specified then it will send you a notification.

After sending a Location Alert notification your iQ will continue to monitor its location but will not send another notification for the next five minutes.  If your iQ then travels out of or into the area specified again after five minutes then it will send another notification.
