What is a fitted black box and where is it fitted in my car?

A black box is a fitted smartphone-size device for collecting driving data. We fit it out of sight in your car, usually behind your dashboard, and it just sits there quietly with no effect on how your car works.

We use this box to build up a picture of your driving style and give you driving feedback on how you’re doing. The box gets fitted by an approved ingenie engineer and generally takes less than an hour.

For more on the box, check out telematics explained and fitting the box.
