Description

You’ll save an initial 5% when you sign up for Drive Safe & Save™ from State Farm. And the safer you drive, combined with the fewer miles you drive, the more you could save on auto insurance.

Your smartphone, along with a Bluetooth beacon you’ll receive in the mail, will collect basic information about your driving characteristics. Next, the app will use this information to calculate your potential discount on auto insurance.

Key Functions

• View your current and trending discounts based on specific driving characteristics
• Calculate your potential discount by adjusting a variety of driving characteristics
• See how your driving stacks up against others
• Learn how your driving habits, such as braking, mileage, speed and acceleration, affect your discount
• Read tips to improve your grades on key driving characteristics

Available in select states only. Please contact your State Farm agent for availability.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Typically don't write reviews for apps. However, just switched back to State Farm and was shuffled into this Drive Safe and Save program and been running this for the last 2 weeks. Like everyone else, this app keeps the location services running in the background all the time. I understand the need to keep Bluetooth on in order to connect to the beacon. I leave that on with wifi and have been able to get 2 days of use on a single charge. Now I'm barely able to make it a day. I also understand the need for location services to be on, but set it up differently.
For example, with Google Maps they have a widget that launches location services so I can see the transit times home or to work. Once I go back to the main screen location services are turned back off. Basically set up the app so that it turns on locations services once it's in range of the beacon. The phone connects to the beacon and then turns on the location services. Once done driving and out of proximity of the beacon, location services shut off until the next trip. Clearly it's possible since many other apps already do this function.

Drive Safe & Save has potential, using a beacon to tell the app when to log so when you are not in your car driving it’s not used against you is great but it ends there. There are fundamental issues with how the current process works. It collects data for a month sending it off to State Farm to process it, then by the 20th of the following month you will receive a letter grade for each criteria for that prior month. All feedback is generic, no specific information is given as to what goes into earning your grade. What does A+ driving look like? Per trip feedback is a must. You need to incorporate all aspects of driver feedback into drive safe and save. Then trip by trip give me an average grade. During that trip stop by stop, turn by turn and each time I accelerate give me a data point on the map and grade it. To make this program useful give users measurable, meaningful and makable goals and timely feedback. Feel free to contact me about this I would love this program to be successful.

6 weeks, still no grade

My monthly payments are quite high for someone with no accidents or tickets on their record, so I thought I'd try to get a discount based on my driving rather than looking into switching companies. I've been using the app for 6 weeks now and still don't have a grade. According to the FAQs, only 14 days of driving are required to formulate a grade. I keep the location services on and haven't had an issue with it draining my battery, but it has other problems. It cuts some of my trips short (doesn't track the last 2 miles on my drive home from work sometimes). It also breaks my trips up (my 8 mile drive home comes out as 2 4-mile trips). But I can't tell whether that affects my grade because, oh yeah, I can't get my grade. I'll probably just end up switching companies instead.
