 At the insured's request, the companies will provide a device that plugs into the on-board diagnostic port found on all vehicles sold in the United States since model year 1996. The device records vehicle information including, but not limited to, the date and time of installation and disconnection, and the time of day and speed at which the vehicle is operated. A usage factor is derived from the vehicle information data recorded by the device and applied to the policy's premium. Usage factors will result in discounts ranging from 0% to 30%. Effective dates of April 1, 2011, for new business and May 4, 2011, for renewal business are requested. This voluntary program has been approved for use by Progressive Advanced Insurance Company.
