Trakm8 has been appointed the sole telematics supplier of self-install devices to Direct Line Group for the recently launched Direct Line DrivePlus Plug-in device.

Trakm8 is working closely with DLG’s other telematics partner, The Floow, a specialist UK based telematics analytics and software company, to deliver the analysis and develop the feedback tools.

Trakm8 is supplying hardware based on their next generation telematics device and the first of a new family of products called T10. The T10 Micro is a fully functional telematics tracking device with CANbus communications. The self-install device is fitted to the vehicle diagnostic socket.

John Watkins, Executive Chairman of Trakm8 said: “This is a key milestone for Trakm8, as Direct Line Group launches a step-change in telematics for UK consumers. This proposition accelerates the awareness of telematics as an effective tool to improve driving skills and reduce fuel costs. We look forward to building on this relationship further as consumers adopt the Plug-in device.”
