Paint it black I'm taking a wait and see approach how the data is used and by whom. If you drive over speed limits (or exceed whatever else it monitors) do you then pay a surcharge Although, not sure that my insurance company even offers anything like this.

I've joined Allstate's program and just plugged the thing in - and haven't gone anywhere yet so there's nothing to see - but one can apparently look at the collected data online anytime and, of course, so can they, that's the point. Just joining yielded a 10% discount and, based on one's driving, they provide up to 30% discounts on the insurance premium. It'll be interesting to see what data is reported and to what detail.
Meanwhile, the thing is precariously plugged into the ODB port near the left leg - just waiting to get side-kicked, I think - and the color is horrendous against my black interior. I doubt that I'll want it there for long.
Anyone have experience with it?
