Looks interesting, though I'm not sure it provides any additional data or service, other than potentially calling for help if you get into a crash.

Saw something like this at CES as well, targeted at business so they can monitor how their employees are using (or misusing) fleet cars.

I'm skeptical about the algorithm they use to determine how efficiently one drives because the website says this:

Rapid Acceleration
Stepping hard on the gas pedal decreases fuel efficiency and wastes money.
Also, the device is only available for iPhone users. Something they don't advertise very prominently.

I have never seen a scangauge and probably never will.
