Your personal driving coach and protector on the road

Welcome to Mentor Defender, an all-in-one driver safety smartphone app designed to keep you and your family members safe 24/7 by helping you understand risky driving behaviors that could one day get you in trouble – and helping you address them BEFORE they do!

And with Eddie, your safe driving buddy and co-pilot, we will help you arrive safely after every trip.

But Defender is MORE than just a safe driving app. It also shows the location of loved ones in your Circle at any time, providing reassurance that they have reached their destination safely. And if ever needed, Defender will be there for your loved ones in the event of a collision or personal emergency by providing Emergency Response Services powered by Sfara and Bosch.

Meet Eddie

FICO® Safe Driving Score

This driver behavior industry standard monitors and scores those behaviors that are most likely to result in a collision – specifically, harsh acceleration, braking, cornering, speeding and cell phone distraction – and provides feedback after EVERY trip.

Coaching and Tips

Learn from over 300 bite-sized, interactive videos, ongoing motivational tips, trending insights, and benchmarking to help you continually improve your behavior behind the wheel.

Emergency Response Services

With Defender’s automatic crash detection and personal SOS feature, crashes or personal emergencies inside or outside the vehicle will result in a call AND dispatch of emergency assistance, as needed, from one of Bosch’s call centers around the world serving more than 50 countries.

Circles and Location Finder

Set up groups of friends and family to encourage accountability, competition and fun. And with permission, you can view Circle members’ locations on a map AT ANY TIME for ultimate peace of mind, knowing they’ve reached their destination safely.

Note: Location data will NEVER be sold under any circumstance.


Linked to your FICO® Safe Driving Score, the ECO icon on the dashboard shows you just how eco-friendly your driving is and reminds you that smooth, defensive driving IS eco-driving.

Personal Insurance Savings

Leverage your FICO® Safe Driving Score for savings on personal insurance available through well-known insurance providers, with assurance your privacy will be protected throughout the process.
