In the end, the biggest drawback to this Snapshot promotion would seem to be the general sense of unease that such tracking programs can engender. Thankfully, Progressive seems to have listened to squeamish customers over the past couple of years, since it now insists that Snapshot can't cause a driver's insurance rate to increase. Progressive also says very clearly that Snapshot contains no GPS technology (though neither do LoJack devices, so this doesn't necessarily mean that Progressive can't track you).
