A video guide to pairing Carrot’s Better Driver app to your car using Bluetooth


When a customer first takes out a Better Driver policy with Carrot Insurance, they will need to pair our app to their car using Bluetooth. Some relatively modern cars have Bluetooth built in, but many older cars don’t have a ‘native’ Bluetooth system.

Fortunately, Carrot came up with an excellent solution called the Wingman. It enables customers whose cars don’t have built-in Bluetooth to use the app for tracking.

Here’s a handy little video which explains exactly how to pair the Better Driver app with your car, using either the vehicle’s built-in Bluetooth system or our clever little Wingman device.

We hope you found our videos on pairing the Better Driver app with your car via Bluetooth useful. If you’ve got any questions, call our contact centre between 8am and 8pm weekdays or between 9am and 1pm on Saturdays, send us a Facebook message, or catch us on LiveChat
