How do you activate CarWatch? Tap the CarWatch icon at the bottom of the screen, and tap/slide on the toggle next to the vehicle you want CarWatch to protect. Tap the “OK” button and you will immediately see that CarWatch is now activated.
When you get back into your car, please remember to deactivate CarWatch. If Carwatch is greyed out on your app, it means that it is not included in your package.
