Do you have an OBDII device from your insurance co and does it work right?

    The only thing I have found on the OBD II connector is +12 volts and ground. Tesla has another port, hidden behind the cubby, to access the data from the car. It does not use an OBD II connector.

    State Farm now uses a small device that they call a "beacon" that is attached to the car cabin via sticky tape. It communicates with a smartphone via bluetooth. The smartphone must have location services enabled.
