Video purports to show the Dragy app warning users that measurements are disabled on public streets.

A Dragy app user video is making the rounds on social media, supposedly showing their Dragy app disabling itself as it detected, via GPS, that the user was on public roads.

Is this for real? And, did Dragy lock out anyone from using their app on public streets?

Dragy, if you don’t already know, is a, “GPS based performance meter where users can track their 0-60mph, 60-130mph, 0-130mph, 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile performance.”

Here’s why Dragy app users can breathe a sigh of relief for the time being.

Check what the video looks like below.

In the video, we see a Dragy App user on a straight piece of road. When he launches, we see the Dragy App screen display,

“Public roadway detected. Please try again when in a safe and legal location”

In response to the alleged business decision, commenters were absolutely livid.

“Probably the worst business decision they could make,”@HeitKamp.Customs commented.

“They’re about to lose a lot of business ????,” @_Patone said.

“A different company is about to make a lot of money,” @Roman_Roberts10 also said.

@CarVideos, the reposter of the video, reached out to Dragy and got this as a response.

“Hello is fake,” is the official response from @DragyMotorsports.

So, it’s confirmed, the video posted above is a fake and, as of this blog post, Dragy has not restricted their app to just racetracks and private roads, you can use it anywhere you like.

Regardless, Dragy users should keep the rules of the road in mind. Benchmarking your car using Dragy can result in you making attention-grabbing tire smoke and cajole you into speeding.

As such, you’re on the hook for any violations and fines you incur.

Are you a Dragy user?

Did you think the video was real?
