New to Automatic?
Automatic is an iPhone app that pairs with a beautiful piece of intelligent hardware called the Automatic Link. The Link plugs into the OBD-II port of your car, connecting your phone to your car’s onboard computer while you drive. All cars since 1996 have an OBD-II port, and most cars are compatible with Automatic (please check to see if your car is compatible).
Automatic is a Smart Driving Assistant: It helps you adjust your driving habits to save gas, remembers where you parked, and helps you decode and clear your car’s “check engine” light. Automatic can also detect many kinds of serious crashes, call for help, and alert loved ones, without an expensive subscription fee.
