Automatic: Track Your Cars Metrics Through Your Smart Phone
By Ryan on 01/03/2015 7:27 AM
The Automatic is a device that plugs right into a slot underneath the dashboard in your car and will track metrics like how you could save on gas by changing certain driving habits, track your mileage without having to keep logs, or receive low fuel warnings before your car's low fuel light comes on. Not only does it track metrics, but it will even let you know what's wrong with your car when that pesky 'Check Engine' light comes on. Once you see the check engine light, your phone will be notified with the error code, a description of the problem, and possible solutions to the problem so that if you have any idea what you're doing, you may be able to fix it yourself. Once you've fixed the problem you can clear the warning from your car from your phone without having to stick electric tape over the light to help yourself ignore it.
The Automatic has a ton of other features such as tracking your car at all times so you'll always know where you've parked, immediate emergency assistance from a Crash Alert live agent, it will allow you to track your newly driving teenager, as well as automatically put your phone into 'Do Not Disturb' mode when you car starts up.
The Automatic car adapter works by just simply plugging it in to your car's OBD-II diagnostics port which is a standard in all cars built since 1996, it will securely transfer all the driving data to your phone after every trip which you can then access from anywhere, your phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer to analyze and hopefully drive better and save yourself some gas money in the future.
