The fair way to pay for car insurance
It just makes sense—insurance should be based partly on how you actually drive, rather than just on traditional factors like where you live and what kind of car you have.
That's what Snapshot is all about. Your safe driving habits can help you save on car insurance. It's as simple as that.
This little device turns your safe driving into savings
Like plugging into an outlet
Snapshot fits into your car's OBD-II port. (Most modern cars have one.) Every time you power up, Snapshot follows suit—you'll see the lights dance and hear a beep.
Drive just like you normally would
For each trip you take, Snapshot notes information like the time of day and how you drive, including any hard brakes. (A hard brake is a rapid deceleration—enough to make your car jerk. You'll hear a beep, too.)
