In order for you to receive rewards from our app, we ask you to share your driving information with us. The key piece of information we collect is your phone's location. To do this we use something called GPS, which works in a similar way to your Maps app. This helps us to determine your driving style and calculate your driving score. To help you along the way, you can see how your are doing by reviewing each trip and your driving feedback. You can unlock badges as you use the app and earn rewards from Tesco and our partners for doing so. Once you have driven 250 miles we can then calculate your final driving score and your reward.
All of the information we record from your trip is compressed to minimize the impact on your data allowance. If you would prefer we didn’t send the information through your network plan, we have added a Wi-Fi only option for you in the settings menu.
We will use the information we receive about your driving to calculate and provide you with driving feedback, journey ratings and facilitate any rewards you earn. We will not use the driving information we collect to increase your insurance quote. We will also use your information for research and analysis to help with the development of products in the future. To read more on how we will use your information, click on T&Cs in the settings menu.
We have taken steps to preserve your battery as much as possible but we know that using your GPS will have an impact, the same as it would if you use the maps app on your device. You might prefer to connect your phone to an in-car charger when on longer journeys.

There are two ways to record your journey, you can either use the start stop button on your dashboard or let auto start take care of the work. Auto start will try to detect when your journey has begun and will automatically record and stop it for you.
Auto start can be impacted by factors such as your signal strength. To help auto start record your journey, there are a couple of best practice steps you can follow... Open the app before you start your journey, though you don't need to press the start button as the auto start will begin itself. We also recommend placing your phone in a secure cradle on your dashboard, helping to increase its GPS signal. If you still have difficulties with auto start recording, you can always do this manually by pressing the start and stop button on the app dashboard.
