How to...

In order to make best use of the utility, install the Iphone into your vehicle using a standard in-car holder.
Align the phone such that the blue accelerometer dot resides on the intersection of the crosshair. The IPhone screen should face the rear of the vehicle and be perpendicular with the direction of motion.
