Sure, first this will be an optional thing to get a real or imagined discount.
Soon to be highly recommended practice by insurance companies until becoming a program you have to "opt out" of for an additional fee....as you are obviously not a responsible driver!

For a supposed "discount" on an overpriced service? No. If they wish to PAY me for the privilege of acquiring data, I may consider it.

But I'm also one of the few who refuses to purchase promotional garments, or to advertise for for others for free. My last car purchase from a dealer included an agreement to have their plate frame and sticker on the car for 1 year for $500. The dealer didn't want to pay for another year, so their name was removed from my car.

I don't understand people who give away advertizing space, or even worse, buy some company's promotional products. Data collection is yet another thing I refuse to give away. Information is valuable...

Yup. It'll be compulsory soon enough.

so, what can be done to stop it?

could you imagine the guys in the states who use their daily rides to run in local races down there.. or us who would roll a stop sign in the middle of no where? we are just f--ked if this goes in and sticks to us,, then mandatory if you want insurance......

Good idea! Get the thing, plug it in grannies car, reap the cheap insurance.

Somebody should make a smartphone app that feeds these things bogus data.

So how long will it take for someone to figure out how to immobilize the black box??? Maybe a little foil wrap or a kill switch!!!
