Insurance Driving monitor issues.
Just thought I would share a significant issue I had with the Progressive insurance Snapshot device. I have learned that they do not like Toyota Tundras and in my case cause severe issues with operability 3 months after installing it.
We were on vacation in Colorado when I noticed the Tundra not wanting to pull steep inclines and at one point got to the top of the pass with no more power and just lucked out we broke over the top before it completely stopped, later that week I had parked on a hill with the emergency brake on. When I got ready to leave I started the truck, released the brake and it did not want to go. Finally got it up the hill, (checked the parking brake and it was released) turned off the engine restarted it and it seemed to have cleared. One block later the truck did it again. This time nothing worked and I was stuck pulling out across traffic when it locked down. The computer would not let the vehicle move, shift gears, anything.
I did quickly figure out that if i gave it full throttle it would move about 3 feet then stop like the brakes or transmission was locking up, I managed to get it out of traffic and on the right shoulder. I shut it off and got out to see if the brakes were smoking or something obvious was wrong underneath, I happen to notice the lights on the Snapshot device were making odd signs so I unplugged it and tried it again. The Turdra started operating pretty much normal again, it still didn't feel like it should but it did see to operate ok.
Moral of the story, there appears to be several law suits against the Snapshot company regarding issues with these devices. I saw at least one other Toyota with similar issues. The device is intended to be passive and not affect the vehicle. I can tell you from personal experience that is not the case, at least for me anyway and Progressive insurance do not clearly tell you it can effect your vehicle.
