The GoCarma app requests that you update your location setting if you have not selected to "Always Allow" the app to access your phone's location.
The benefit of updating your location setting to "Always Allow" is that it enables the app to activate automatically as you drive in a TEXpress Lane during weekday peak periods - even when the app is closed.
If you choose to leave the app's location permission to set to "While Using", you must remember to open the app prior to departing on each commute trip.
GoCarma uses GPS to determine and activate when you are traveling near a TEXpress Lane. This enables the app to confirm that you are in proximity with another user at the time of a TEXpress Lane toll transaction.
GoCarma only collects GPS data when you travel in a TEXpress Lane and only in weekday peak periods. Your GPS data is only used to enable you to qualify for HOV toll discounts. And your GPS data expires automatically after 60 days.
