tony ...interesting but imo there is a movement in some countries of all sales/receipts being simultaneously being electronically sent to the computers of the tax department. In some countries with a history of high tax/VAT evasion. (21-28% in different European countries...big bucks...& the taxman likes to get paid !) ...so it might happen for all taxi meters in the future..

post 3516 AA & phps pushing their insurance dept./offer....linked to telematics data...(& Trak's Genie unit)...also providing breakdown data (& note that the AA claims that 80% of breakdowns are fixed by their breakdown engineers.....(impressive % if true)) all makes a lot of sense & with 2500 breakdown vehicles on the streets the AA have an advantage over a pure insurance co. ---- the opportunity is there...with product release/promotion by the AA in February.

In my experience most taxi drivers wouldn't want to be tracked because they would then have to declare their true earnings for tax

How many taxis are there in India ? ...the following post/analsis says ~1 million...as part of 29 million cars in 2015 ( which must be higher now in 2019) hxxps://www.quora.com/How-many-taxi-cars-are-there-in-India .... How many use a telematics unit ? Are there opportunities for Trak, via Microlise's experience & contacts in India (& an MD that looks to have Indian blood) ? no idea

....I dont know much about the pros & cons of new tech. in the insurance sector....& the balance between possibilities & reality that users are taking on board... but I guess that the taxi mkt must be a big possible for using telematics...( charge insurance per km....& run 1 vehicle for 2 or 3 shifts per day & there is income per km to pay that insurance cost) (& there are a lot of taxis in India !! & Microlise have a history/presence in India) & numerous car sharing schemes including Car2go which are all growing (which now claims to have 3.6 million registered users (mostly in Chongging in China, Berlin & Madrid I think; annual turnover ?. no idea). The world is changing. (in some cities the model of car or moped sharing/using (& perhaps opening the car door via an app) rather than vehicle owning is growing rapidly....& surely the schemes must all use vehicle telematics including to check that the car/m.bike is not being thrashed....or that any car/engine warning signals are not being ignored by the temporary driver....so surely the size of the possible market for Trak must be growing rapidly

Take special note of the later part of the article where it refers to telematics and shows a picture with a Trakm8 black box ;) Brexit worries 'add to car insurance costs' Http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-46922989 Makes you wonder why they are so passionate for telematics insurance since they don't sell any...yet!!! Part of their strategy with the Car Genie is once it's core breakdown offering, to offer telematics insurance. Does that mean that perhaps they are also ready to kick off the insurance part at the same time as the breakdown? That would be superb.

btw Indian Rupee has been weak vs US Dollar for 2018 & now (Dollar strengthening due to their interest rate rising strongly & attracting buyers of dollars) while the pound has been weak vs most currencies helpful for the selling prices in India for Microlise & Trak versus competition from USA (Microlise already has a history of sales in India) -- chart pnd vs dollar (which defines the resulting difference wrt the Rupee. A change of about 15%, (in favour of UK product sellers in India (Track & Microlise) wrt USA product sellers, not massive % but if it was 15% in other direction it wld be a 30% variation wrt today) hxxps://www.xe.com/currencyconverter/convert/?Amount=1&From=GBP&To=USD

..good info...thanks for sharing/informing (incl. 'tihese 3 automotive clubs have a total of 8M members ...if 5-8% take up the service/product....the impact on Trak's numbers are easy to see') --- ANWB connected is supplied by Trak ?

Intelematics Europe consists of the AA, ANWB and OAMTC. TRAK signed a Master Supply agreement with them to provide data and devices as the sole supplier. Netherlands' biggest road club, ANWB has a product called ANWB Connected and Austria's biggest road club OAMTC goes live with the same product next month, called OAMTC Smart Connect. AA already sells it as Car Genie and will make it a core offering next month called Smart Breakdown. These 3 clubs together have around 8m clients. Do you imagine what is going to happen to TRAK after these launches if even 1% of them decides to buy the product? If it catches on and we see 5-8% adoption we're talking about doubling the number of devices just from Automotive without counting Fleet and Insurance opportunities growing. There are also the Road Clubs of Denmark, Sweden, Ireland and Switzerland in their european association (Arc Europe) and these are prospective clients that could follow. They would take the technology and infrastructure all ready and good to go for deployment, directly from TRAK with 0 R&D from their side. I have been waiting for this for 3 years and it's the reason I bought into TRAK, 2019 is finally the year where it's all happening.

btw here is the info page for Genie at the Trak website...(for newbies like me) hxxps://www.trakm8.com/articles/your-vehicle-could-have-striking-similarities-to-a-bugatti-chiron --- interesting the existing car management system should imo detect many car faults, like the battery charging system not working (probably duff alternator or bad connection), low battery voltage, ignition system problem ?, recently ran out of fuel & problem after re-fueling, air pressure problem in ignition system, brain thinks the electronic key is wrong key, excessive or low water temp., excessive or low oil temp. , low oil, oil press. fault, low water, low hydraulic brake fluid, broken fan belt (some women might not know a car has one) etc useful advance info for the AA before they arrive & also useful info to save the repairman a lot of time

As I said a month ago. And guess when those devices need to be ordered if they go live in February? I'm reckon they are already built and sold to the AA. A healthy initial launch of 20-30,000 devices at least should have been ordered with more to come depending on the take up from their clients. This will be the only breakdown product in the UK with a telematics device for retail clients. First come first served, they could take the whole market share. I hope the pricing is low so they can get as many as they can in, the device will pay for itself for the AA as they will avoid up to 33% of breakdowns, leading to much lower callouts and their profit exploding. A win-win partnership and if it goes well, all the other road clubs in Europe will follow soon. Austria also launching the same product in February and Netherlands already have 40-50k devices sold to clients as a standalone product. If they make it a core offering it too that number could triple. Very exciting year for TRAK, offered on a ridiculous price on the market. It could easily triple from here and just go where it was last year.

I contacted AA re car genie and this was my reply, ME TO AA,Good afternoon, I see on your website that Car Genie subscriptions are not currently being offered. I am not currently an AA member but am consideringbreakdown recovery from various service providers. Can you confirm if the Car Genie / connected car service will, in the future, be available to new members, whether by subscription or as a free inclusive service. AA TO ME,Many thanks, We are hoping to release our new sales strategy of the Car Genie device called 'Smart Breakdown' around the end of February. This will be an additional product for you to purchase with your breakdown membership. It will only be available to purchase online for new members, so please do keep an eye on our website in the coming weeks if you are looking to take up a Car Genie device. Kind regards

Some healthy profit taking going on here, by the looks of things. Perhaps in the face of the chaos unfolding over Brexit. Wasn't quick enough to dive in and out, but might grab some more if it rows back far enough. GLA

thinking out loud to myself --- ...with Trak's in house design..& production.... ..it has the option to do exclusive or semi exclusive deals/products for big players in the world like the AA who might want to offer an exclusive product to help them attract or keep their clients.. ---- ..one wonders if a big co. like Direct Line might want to own its own company like Trak...with the massive changes in the insurance industry & motoring sector incl. car sharing, Uber, electric scooters etc.

AA have been on the record that connected car is a very exciting area for them and they are looking to use it as a major marketing tool. It even made their last results presentation. They were just fine tuning how to actually package it up. I made my own inquiries and was told that car genie will only be available on subscription when purchased with a new membership. I imagine they will focus on premium members first and then take it from there. As I understand it the device actually pays for itself somewhat in that it helps save AA making unnecessary call outs for certain issues.

does Genie have the chance to be a standard product used by every AA member....for the std. breakdown package ? (!!) --------- Exactly. It will be one of their 4 core offering. If even 5% of their members decide to try it that's 165,000 devices! Imagine if it catches on and has something like 10-15% of users adopting it. TRAK now has 250,00 devices so we can double or triple the devices just from the AA contracts. This is a game changer for TRAK but the market seems to be completely unaware.

thanks for that info (Im not up to speed with the different AA products,... as long as the AA are busy doing product initiatives...& using Track to supply them....that's good enough for me...(I know the AA have millions of members...& that Track has a smallish cap. value so big volumes from the AA 'could' impact Trak's turnover/profit & hence share price...that's good enough for coupled with the dirs putting in 700k pnds & Microlise putting in 700k pnds.) ---- ...so AA dont now sell the Genie but will provide it as part of the new breakdown package ?? ...does Genie have the chance to be a standard product used by every AA member....for the std. breakdown package ? (!!) (Genie. its product spec. & poss. production cost ; I've got no idea !)
