The Metromile smart driving app makes car insurance -- and ownership -- easier, less expensive, and more enjoyable with unique features that provide insight into your vehicle's health, location, and your daily driving habits.
All pay-per-mile insurance customers receive the Metromile Pulse, which plugs into your car’s OBD-II port and powers our smart driving app so you can:
- Locate a missing car
- Receive street sweeping alerts (currently in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco)
- Decode those mysterious check engine lights
- View details for each trip, like miles driven and gas costs
- Be in control of your monthly insurance bill by always knowing what you will owe
Visit metromile.com to sign up for pay-per-mile insurance, currently available in Arizona, California, Illinois, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington. Drivers in other states can sign up for our waitlist for an emailed notification of availability.
Note: Not all makes and models are compatible. Continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.
Various enhancements and fixes.

An Easy-to-Use App for Affordable Insurance
My wife and I just recently switched to MetroMile from Esurance because we purchased a new vehicle. We cut our first month’s Esurance bill IN HALF by switching (just so anyone reading knows the savings are pretty spectacular).
As far as the app goes, it is easy to navigate and provides stream-lined information instead of a lot of clutter. You can also start a claim right from the app (which thankfully we haven’t had to do yet). While some people are wary of being “tracked” by the Pulse device that you have to plug into you OBD-II port (it’s basically plug-and-play), I would like to remind everyone that LoJack and GPS and location services DO THE SAME THING. It’s no different.
The Pulse device provides up-to-date billing info and can help you locate your car if ever you need that feature. My only minor qualm is I wish it was a little more low profile, but it’s not the biggest of issues. The only other trouble I’ve had with the app is it crashed for a few days due to a server issue, but I attribute this to a newer company that’s making their way in a big world of competitive insurance.
Really Great, but...
I wish that the App would alert customers when there is a connection issue with the device. I feel that email is an outmoded vehicle that is filled with spam. Sending an email saying that one might be fined the value of 150 miles a day, for a technical issue, is a bit odd for such a modern way of getting insurance.
Please be more aggressive and modern to send such an important message.
I had an issue with this as my metronome was draining my Prius starter Battery. To rectify this, I was sent a cable to plug into the Cigarette lighter receptacle and then plug the metronome into that. The cable wiggled loose and I didn't notice it.
I receive so many emails, every day, that I do not read emails from companies. I presume that they are just ads or requests for filling out a review.
One other way to fix this would be to send a notification with stats of the last drive. I would notice if I stopped receiving those and I would look into why.
They could say "You drove X Miles and spent $Y on fule and you only spend $Z on insurance!"
I honestly hope that this is taken into consideration for the benefit of all customers and the image of Metromile. When I started to get charged for 150 Miles a day, I lost my love for Metromile and that saddens me. I write this in hope to turn that distaste into something better for others.
Thank you for reading,

App is not good
The insurance is great. At least I think it’s good as this is my first month. I can only say something after the first month. But I can say that the app needs a lot of work. To begin with the map portion of the app does not show any map of where my car is parked - it’s useless. Sure, it shows me how many miles I drove and what money I spent on gas, but how does that help when I don’t know what average it is using? I’d say this is an app where the developers have no idea what the business requirements are. It seems they just copied and pasted some functionality from some other app like Dash or Automatic, but didn’t think about what actually this app should do for their customers. The app is also not intuitive. To find the billing I have to go through many things to find what I need. I feel like there are so much room for improvements and to a point that they should completely redo the app. Anyway, the rest is up to the developers to improve.
