4. Make sure that ‘channel_hovding’ is running

Hövding App’s notification ‘channel_hovding’ has to run on the phone during your trips (a Hövding icon is shown in the status bar). If you disable the notification you must enable it again, for your trips to be registered and your ICE contacts to be notified – in the case of an accident.

NOTE: ICE contacts (In Case of Emergency) can be added in the app. For instructions, see Add ICE contacts.
