Intelligent Marmalade is a fun app the allows you to record your journeys and get a feel for what could be the future of insurance

Here is how Intelligent Marmalade works: first register an account – this allows you to log on to all your journey data via our website www.intelligentmarmalade.co.uk Intelligent Marmalade t

ells you how good a driver you are out of a possible score of 100. Depending on how good of a driver you will be given an estimated saving on your insurance premium.

By improving your score you will become a safer driver and safer drivers are a more attractive proposition to insurance companies as they are a lower risk – the lower the risk, the lower the premium from insurers which operate the telematics based scheme. Start the app when you start driving and stop it when you reach your destination. You can leave your phone anywhere in the car, but make sure that it does not mov

e around as that will negatively affect your score.

A few points to remember: * Intelligent Marmalade will not advise a score under 56% – our minimum standard of driving. This is to stop drivers seeking a poor score as a challenge. * The data from journeys that you have made will be hosted on our servers. Information includes the ABCs of driving – Acceleration, Braking, Cornering and speed and is used by us to calculate a score and this information remains personal to you.

How you choose to use that information is up to you. * If you delete a journey from your handset, the information will remain on our server. *

Data Protection Act – the data gathered by your

phone is personal to you. By downloading and using Intelligent Marmalade smartphone app, you effectively give us permission to use this personal information to report back to your phone. We will then use similar algorithms to those we use for Intelligent Marmalade, our telematics based insurance scheme, and present you with a score out of 100 for each journey.

Just press “start” and “finish” and you’re away! Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

I downloaded this app it was easy to download and install. It is easy to use just press start journey and you are off. I did this and carried on with my usual 30 mile round trip school run.

On finishing the run I checked to see what score that i had received.Intelligent Marmalade App - First Review I was delighted just about where I would expect to be on an initial test. I continued with the evaluation on the next journey the app crashed, it recorded the journey and the mileage but gave no score. a subsequent journey it crashed again, it recorded that a journey had begun but gave no finishing time, score or mileage record.

I contacted Intelligent Marmalade who were helpful and suggested that I try re-installing the app. I did this, it took two installs before it worked properly. It has been working properly for nearly a hundred miles now and I for one am happy with the results.

One thing that I think could do with a bit more in the way of explanation is the score page (see above) Could you please make it clear what the score means, what do the numbers mean?

That said, it appears to be a fun app, if there are a couple of niggles then I am sure they will be ironed out.

 

How to Get a High Black Box Score

It is relatively easy to complete the evaluation and qualify for a discount of up to 20% on your car insurance by getting a high black box score if you drive with care and avoid harsh braking and acceleration you should have no problem. If you are unsure of how to drive to the standard required watch my short video on how to get a high black box score.
