The updated app offers a redesigned user experience with a focus on road safety.

Drive Safe & Save 3.0 uses CMT’s award-winning platform to analyze data collected from smartphone sensors as well as the bluetooth beacon device affixed in the vehicle. The app automatically detects driving and notes drivers for speeding, hard braking, hard acceleration and tight turns. It also measures driver distraction on the phone and provides information to drivers on how to use their phones while driving, encouraging them to drive distraction-free.

“Users can now see exactly which driving patterns affected their performance. For example, I can now learn that I always brake hard at a particular stop sign, and I can work to correct that with better anticipation. Previously, I could only get general information about the whole driving experience, ”said Scott Bruns, director of telematics services at State Farm.
