I saw this on a Facebook group this evening. Supposedly, the latest update to HondaLink is able to give per-drive stats as well as weekly feedback over time. The question is, will this work for us lowly LX/EX owners, or is it limited to the "upper-crust" Touring owners?

Per the OP, "HondaLink received a new update which stores the trip information with drive time more than 10 minutes and a driver scorecard based on our driving."

Honda posted these videos today on the new "Driver Feedback" features of HondaLink for 'select models' including:
  • 2018 and newer Accord Touring
  • 2018 and newer Odyssey Touring / Elite
  • 2019 and newer Insight Touring
  • 2019 and newer Passport Touring / Elite
  • 2019 and newer Pilot Touring / Elite / Black Edition
It requires current or prior enrollment in one of the following HondaLink package levels (Security, Remote, Concierge - including trial period) that are only available to Insight Touring owners.

A summary of the FAQ on "Driver Feedback" scoring calculations:
  • It's a "proprietary algorithm" based on how much, when, and how well the car is driven.
  • How well the car is driven includes in-car sensor measurements on braking, acceleration, and speeding events across 5 defined dimensions: 1) Speed Responsibility, 2) Smooth Driving, 3) Consistent Driving, 4) Driving Time, and 5) Time Behind the Wheel.
  • Score is shared weekly (Monday) based on a 15-week rolling drive history as long as >20 miles are driven in the prior week.
  • The score-related insurance discount is available in 42 states as of launch date (Aug 2020) - excluding Alaska, California, Florida, Hawaii, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New York, Oklahoma.
Some additional context from MotorTrend and Cars.com on the Verisk-based analytics: Insurance industry loss data is the basis for recommending behavior changes to reduce collision risk. The lowest-scoring drivers are 7x more likely to be involved in a crash or have an insurance claim compared to drivers with the highest scores
  • Speed Responsibility = driving speed; higher risk at higher speed
    • Monitors the driver’s speed as indicator of safety and fuel economy.
    • A driver who routinely drives above speed limit won’t score well.
  • Smooth Driving = degree of acceleration/braking.
    • How much driving is done without hard acceleration and hard braking at different speeds.
    • Smoother acceleration and braking indicate less aggressive driving and raises the score.
  • Consistent Driving = regularly commuting at the same time reduces risk
    • Calculates consistency of repeated driving patterns.
    • Honda says drivers who regularly commute at the same time are less likely to experience a crash.
  • Driving Time = driving during night or early morning hours increases risk
    • When you're driving; better scores when not at night or early morning.
  • Time Behind Wheel = overall driving time and duration of each trip; more risk with more time behind wheel
    • How much driving is done; spending a long time behind wheel without breaks won’t score well.
While we LX/EX owners won't have access to "Driver Feedback" in HondaLink, I guess our makeshift, poorman's version is feedback from DII screens like the Drive Cycle Score, Speed & Time, and Eco Drive Display... but it requires some conscious and intentional scrolling/searching, since all 3 can't be displayed on the DII concurrently.
