You can add the address and the access instructions by going to Your cars, finding the installed car and selecting “Access instructions”.

Wait for Activation

Our team will activate Getaround Connect for your car after checking the quality of your listing. You’ll be notified by email once the activation is complete.

Your subscription will start on the day Getaround Connect is activated on your car. More info on the subscription.

Once activated, your Getaround Connect dashboard allows you to:

  • Locate your car via GPS (while it’s not in a rental).

You can access this dashboard by going to Your cars, then finding the installed Getaround Connect car and selecting locate/lock/unlock.
