You’ll be able to view in an attractive graphic interface. The system will give you a pass or fail’ score (though it’s not clear if the rating will be visible to the person using the service) and, as far as I’ve seen the program appears to be restricted to HW2 and higher and the software version 2021.4.12. 2021.4.12 is required. .”
Furthermore an ” Simulator” section allows owners to modify the variables related to areas that impact rates. This includes, but is not restricted to ABS Activation, Hours Driven Forced Autopilot Disengagements Forward Collision Warnings as well as unsafe Following time, and the intensity of Braking and Acceleration.
