What information can the box tell you?

The Black Box fitted to the insured car collects a wide range of data, when the car is moving and when it is stationary, such as:

  • Date/Time: this helps us to understand what time of day the car is driven.

  • Locational data: this helps to understand what roads are driven on and the location of the vehicle when it is moving or stationary. It also supports the Theft Tracking service.

  • Speed, Acceleration and braking data: this helps us to understand how smooth the driving style is.

  • Accident Detection: this records any sudden impacts on the vehicle, monitoring any heavy braking or harsh acceleration.

We will post a summary of your driving data on Your Portal, where you will be able to see Bonus Miles awarded to you for positive driving behaviour. Please note that we are aware that occasionally you will have no alternative but to use your brakes severely to avoid an accident; occasional use of 'hard' braking will not be scored against you. We are looking at a number of factors to give an overall assessment of driving.
