COOOOL! (yes i just wrote that)

With all the talk of Telematics in the Auto insurance world, has released an amazing application:

Kanetix has a FREE app to determine whether or not an individual driver would benefit from telematics.

DriveSmart automatically records any motor-vehicle trip you take and will grade your driving on the most important components that will be looked at in usage-based insurance program.

The app is always on, so there’s no need to start and stop it. Just keep your phone in your pocket or your bag.

DriveSmart automatically records any motor-vehicle trips you take. You can view the distance, duration, and score for each trip. Drivers with an average score over 70 are considered safer drivers, and will likely benefit from a usage-based insurance program.

A progression graph that shows how your scores have changed.
Customizable time frames to view your scores, distance driven, average speed, and more.

Badges that are earned for good driving techniques.

Battery use
The app consumes battery power, so nightly charging is recommended. With typical phone use, a smartphone running DriveSmart should have enough battery power to last all day.

Whilst putting together some information for a client of mine, i came across some very interesting points about this coverage from one of the companies i work with: Trisura Guarantee Company :
