Some of the alerts you can set allow you to be alerted depending on a light, moderate, or excessive setting. You may be wondering how we determine the criteria for this.
Fundamentally, it is a measure of speed change over a period of time. This change recorded as an event.
- An 8 MPH decrease within 1 second or less will be identified as a Hard Braking Event.
- An 8 MPH increase within 1 second or less will be identified as Rapid Acceleration Event.
Then we divide the number of events by the length of your trip, which provides a measure of what would be considered light, moderate, or excessive.
- 3 events during a 20 mile trip would trigger for Light
- 5 events during a 100 mile trip would not trigger for Light
