I drive remote back roads at higher than legal speeds. It would be comforting to know that I would not lie abandoned and unfound in some remote ditch if I were to encounter a deer at speed. I also like its ability to track a stolen vehicle. That should merit a reduction in insurance premiums, should it not? John Davies Monroe WA USA
