How to install your Metronome

Hi MetroMilers!

One of our most frequently asked questions is “How do you install the Metronome?” — that cool little widget that provides all the data used by our app. So in this video, we’d like to introduce Beri from our Customer Experience team, who will show you how easy it is to find the OBD II port in your car and plug in your Metronome device.

The OBD II port looks like a trapezoid with 9 little holes. There are 6 locations where your OBD II port might be:

  1. Under the left dashboard (most common)
  2. Above the brake pedal
  3. Under the right dashboard
  4. Near the radio (rare)
  5. In the center console (very rare)
  6. On the floor by the driver-side door (usually in BMWs)

There’s a nice website where you can look up your car’s make, year, and model, and it will tell you exactly where your port is.

Once you’ve got the Metronome in place, you’ll be able to access all of our free app features, as well as find out how much you could save with our unique per-mile car insurance service! 

Happy driving!
