How good of a driver are you really? Test your skills with the KANETIX.ca DriveSmart app that grades your driving. Why? Auto insurers in Canada are increasingly offering drivers the opportunity to join a usage-based insurance program, which monitors how you drive to determine if you’ll get a discount off your insurance. The KANETIX.ca DriveSmart app will give you some insight on how your driving stacks up and if you could save on your insurance.
The KANETIX.ca DriveSmart app will grade your driving on the most important components that will be looked at in a usage-based insurance program; acceleration, braking, and handling and you’ll be given a score for each (plus some tips for improvement, if needed). The app also takes into consideration your speed, when you drive, and for how long, which is then factored into your overall driving score.
Drivers with an overall average score over 70 are considered safer drivers, and will likely benefit from a usage-based insurance program.
Are you up to the challenge?
The app runs in the background and automatically detects when you start driving; it’s completely hands-free so there’s no need start or stop the app, or check your phone while driving—in fact, your driving score will be penalized if you do. You're graded on your acceleration, braking and handling skills, as well as an overall score for every trip.
* A hands-free automatic trip start and end detection.
* A progression graph that shows how your scores have changed.
* Customizable time frames to view your scores, distance driven, average speed, and more.
* Badges that are earned for good driving techniques.
Every province in Canada has laws against the use of handheld devices while driving. Drive safe and avoid a ticket. Do not check in on the app while on the road.
For long trips, plug in your device. Prolonged use of GPS will greatly decrease your device's battery life.
KANETIX will not share your trip details with any insurer, and use of this app will not have any impact on your insurance rates.
Scores within this app will not guarantee discounts if joining a usage-based insurance program.
- Added Mph/Kmh option.
Ratings and Reviews
The idea of the app is great but it has too many inaccuracies that it can't be trusted to deliver a proper idea of your driving style. I use engine breaking a lot since I have a manual, and this seem to trigger rough braking. Also it shows roads are never taken and sometimes it doesn't record at all. Truncated trips are also common. Acceleration results are also doubtful, as some ramps are short so you need to accelerate quickly to merge properly on the 400 series highways in the GTA.
This app knows when you are driving and starts the scoring automatically! It then shows you where you made driving errors on a map. I think I try to driver better to get a better score.
DriveSmart is a very well made app with a user friendly design. It provides a lot of information and is a great tool to help improve your driving habits.
