It shouldn't just measure when your engines running, that's not right. Ring the insurers.
#2
oO why did you start the engine?????
#3
they work on GPS so if you didnt move, it shouldnt consume your mileage allowance. ring up and confirm

i hate block boxes, i would've had a saving of £400 on my initial insurance in 2010 but i thought forget that, and went out on a full rea policy to avoid problems like this and have fun

There's plenty or reports of Black boxes logging incorrect distance, speed data etc. Seems a common complaint by a fair few users. Google gives plenty of stories.

mm , had a black box from admiral last year and sometimes it took a couple of days for trips to show in the online dash board

I'd give your insurers a call. There are been many people reporting similar issues.

The Tesco boxes have a delay in reporting mileage online. As previously mentioned, it measures the distance by GPS. Running the engine won't have used your miles.

I hazard a guess as it was freezing cold
