Need to adjust distraction measurement
Recently downloaded and started using this app as we switched from Progressive to Farmers. As a developer I was curious what iOS APIs they leverage to measure distracted driving. I inquired through their app feedback service and was surprised to learn they count Bluetooth usage against you for the purpose of hands free calls. This seems really flawed as a majority of folks connect their iPhones via Bluetooth, but might only be doing so for podcasts or music. Looking through the iOS APIs, I would suggest the developers look into implementing CXCallObserver instead of any Bluetooth usage so that they are actually measuring against an active phone call.
Socialism at its best
So by law in Texas the insurance companies come together to pay for claims. So when a natural disaster hits its paid out of a whole
big pot. So when they pay out a lot are premiums goes up. They “created” this as a way to reward god drivers but get this not even an elderly who’s actually impedes traffic would get a good score with this system. And after the 121 trips if you remove the app they take away the discount. Also they will continue to monitor your driving and potentially change the discount you get. And if this isn’t enough to get you out of a discount they ensure they don’t have to by only giving you the discount you due earn at renewal. I’m pretty sure for most it’s ever year. So if by some miracle you get a good score you have to wait a whole year to get the discount which can be taken away any of the cycles of driving analyzing they do throughout that whole
Time. Save your self the privacy and time by shopping your policies and going with a company that only plugs into your car for a limited timeframe. Farmers has become very clear to me to protect their own interest on the interest of the ones who make their paychecks.
Restrictive Big Brother
I have recently downloaded this app due to constant rate increases and find it to be quite inaccurate. I have been driving for nearly 60 years and am a safe and mindful driver. There are three segments of this app that truly bother me..1) Being chastised for using Bluetooth for inbound calls, as negative phone usage such as texting should be measured another way. Also Bluetooth is used for verbal navigation...and should Not count against you...2) Breaking!! In a city such as Oklahoma City where you NEVER know what other drivers will do at any second, it is most difficult to be able to break like “driving in the country” which is what I believe this app wants you to do...3) Time of day. Ridiculous!!! You have an automobile for transportation to move You WHEN YOU NEED TO DRIVE!! I believe further research and considerations need to be made.
