One of the key safety benefits of having a box installed is the accident alert. Some telematics providers offer this, but not all.
If your vehicle experiences a certain G force or above, it suggests impact, and your insurer is notified. If your car is stationary, they may try to call you - it can tell if the car isn’t moving, if the ignition is still on, and the severity of the impact.
If your insurer believes that you might be injured – especially if the car’s in an isolated or remote location – it may call the emergency services on your behalf. The potential for saving lives may ultimately prove invaluable.
