GoCama.....NO Smart Phone =NO Discounts Regarding the new Gocarma app has anyone figured out how a driver with a toll tag but no smart phone can receive the HOV discount when applicable. Example 1) Grandmother owns a vehicle and has a toll tag but no smart phone, she takes various people shopping throughout the week, many of which do not have smart phones. 2) Driver with toll tag and occupant is on HOV phones are in purse for some reason (Low battery?) bluetooth disconnects. There has to be a manual way to make up for the flaws in this system?
