Telematics: The Fitbit for your Car


Why is it that tracking what we eat results in weight loss? Tracking what we spend saves us money? Tracking how we feel enables us to be happier?


It’s simple – gaining awareness contributes to habit changes.

So what does this have to do with cars? 

Did you know your car is built for a device that can track and transmit information about your driving skills such as hard breaking, speed, distance and the times of day you travel most?   A small removable device that gathers data, can be installed in your vehicle, to rate your insurance premium based on your driving skills rather than demographic generalizations. Inevitably, having this device track your good and bad driving habits will prompt you to be more aware on the road which will help increase safety precautions for you and others on the road. If you think you're a fantastic driver, then this device could mean big savings for you.
