I’ve just finished a trip, why’s it not in my app?

When we record your driving, it’s sent over the internet to the theo platform using the built in 4G. When the trip ends, your Theo device sends an “end of trip” message to the platform, telling us the trip is now complete, and the trip can be shown in the app.

The most common reason a trip wouldn’t appear in your app is sometimes that “end of driving” message doesn’t make it through to us for example if there’s no signal or you’ve parked in an underground carparks. This means the trip doesn’t appear in the app.

All is not lost though, once you start your next trip, once you’ve gone into signal, the data is sent to the platform along with your new trip and the theo platform realises this means your previous trip has obviously ended, and publishes it to your app.

I’ve just finished a trip, why’s it not in my app?

theo uses GPS to find your location. This location is returned by GPS, with an accuracy score.  (This is similar to Maps on your mobile phone, and the dot of your location bounces around sometimes or has a big circle around it) Sometimes theo device can’t get a good GPS connection and so the location has a low accuracy score associated with it.

Since it’s vital insurers trust the theo score in order to offer the best discounts, we only use trip data where the GPS accuracy is good enough for us to trust. We don’t want to penalise someone for doing 60mph on a 30mph road when actually they’re on the motorway 100 meters away!

If the GPS connection is poor the entire trip, we wouldn’t use this trip for scoring or mapping as it would look wrong on the map and cause confusion.

Why is the start of my trip sometimes not where I started
When you get in the car, the first thing your theo device does is start recording video and finding GPS satellites. Once GPS is established, regardless of accuracy, your device will say that it’s got GPS. That’s the first point in the trip we know the location of your vehicle.
