      Most do yes, have to be installed by a qualified fitter. Very surprised you've been given yours to do yourself

        However, what does it need to be connected too? What wires does it have? Picture would be helpful

            What does it actually say? Can you share pictures of the device, plug and any instructions that came with it?

                  A little bit of effort including the link might be helpful.

                  And I assume that if they're posting it to you they'll include some instructions what it connects to.

                    I always thought they had to be wired in by an auto electrician approved by the company.If they do just send you the device to fit your self then surely it will come with instructions. I dont know of a socket that it just plugs in to but the scheme is limited to cars 1996 and later. Maybe it just plugs into a diagnostic socket and reads data from the cars ECU. Their ad mentions a possible charge for the 'plug-in'.This could mean a computer software 'plug-in' for whatever device you use to send them the data ( smart phone etc) ,not a physical plug socket on the car. I would wait and see.

                      Having just looked at the video, it plugs into the OBD port in the fusebox. It's exactly the same as the smallish bluetooth obd readers you can get...

                      Downside is, you wont be able to close the fusebox cover with it plugged in as it's too big. Stupid idea!

                        Ah, sensible idea though as saves money on install/removal

                          Yep, however, if the driver has that easy option of just unplugging it, how is the insurance company going to prove it?

                            I suspect it is always connected and probably has a certain amount of power left in it to report when it is unplugged. I don't really know but I imagine they know what they're doing.

                              Just read an american web site that says all cars built since 1996 have an obd port 'under the steering column'. I've not much knowledge of these but have a vague recollection that many cars have two, one under the bonnet and one inside,under the dash. If it can read the ecu it can probably detect any gap in mileages etc.
