I've already paid full price for my Automatic Pro dongle.  What is the best insurance provider for me to use to take advantage of this investment?  I've noticed that some providers, like American Family, offer an Automatic for free when you sign up.  Are there any that work the other way - giving me a discount on the insurance because I've already spent money on the OBD device?

Hi Amit. The insurance programs that use our product don't work that direction. You'd need to contact American Family directly to discuss it with them as we're not able to sign users up for their insurance  They are in charge of signing folks up for a program that uses the Automatic adapter for UBI and it's only in select states at this time.

Thanks.  I called American Family but unfortunately they weren't able to help.  I have gone ahead and signed up for an insurance policy with Metromile.  One follow-up question, I would like to continue using my Automatic dongle, but Metromile requires me to use their dongle as well.  There shouldn't be any issues with me continuing to use both, with this OBD splitter, correct?

Sorry, Amit, but that is unlikely to work and is not advised. Please see this FAQ.

I'm sure it isn't advised/supported, but there are lots of people using that specific splitter with Automatic and other ODB-II device (like Progressive's dongle).

That is really unfortunate.  I have no choice but to use Metromile's dongle now.  I will need to return my Automatic dongle.
