Question Adjust Parameters for Reminders

Is there a way for users to adjust the parameters for service reminders (i.e. Oil Changes) or are the values hard coded?

Not everyone changes their oil at 3K miles. Some do it at 4K-5K depending on factory recommendations.

Thanks

Some do it at 30,000 miles too, but it's very common for Americans to change it too often.

From within the FAQ located in the aCar app-
Quote:
How do I edit/customize the service reminders for a particular vehicle?
Tap on the Reminders icon on the main screen. Then select your desired vehicle on Reminders Center screen and tap on the EDIT icon to customize the service reminders for that vehicle.

Personally, I find I can't seem to SET reminders. I edited the reminders, added all the ones I wanted, with Time/Mileage. Told it to apply to all vehicles.... But on the reminders page, they don't show up. It gives me this cr*p that "You must enter at least one record for the services you would like to be reminded"... does that mean I need to "claim" that all services were performed at 0 miles on my brand new car?

From aCar FAQ within the app-

Why don't I see any active service reminders (at Reminders Center) while I have already set them up for my vehicle?
You should have at least one service record for the service types that you would like aCar to remind and track them for you. This gives hint to aCar that you are interested for those particular service types. There are tens of services (thus reminders) setup for your vehicles and it's not logical to track them all while you might not be interested in many of them.
