    Do insurance companies that provide you with a gps black box actually monitor your every move and address and where you leave your car?

    Well the black box is powered using your cars battery which only supplies it when its turned on obviously. They do monitor your every speed etc, i don't think they monitor where you park etc although the box does have GPS in it so they could?

    I had one for a year and it wasn't that bad although you can't even speed by a bit otherwise it will bring your averages down.
