Thanks to the advent of inexpensive Bluetooth, USB, and even cellular OBD-II translator modules, the information generated by your car's computer and sensors is now available to everyone, not just garages with expensive code readers. Weekend racers, modders, and services such as MetroMile are taking advantage.
MetroMile is an interesting concept, and if you're a low-mileage driver seeking savings on auto insurance, this could be just the thing for you. The company hopes to expand its insurance territory considerably this year.
For those that are more interested in real-time tracking as well as driving habits and vehicle health, check out the aforementioned Zubie. There are also any number of Bluetooth and USB OBD-II translators and apps available for data and analysis.
