Drive safer and smarter with the second-generation Automatic Car Adapter. The Automatic Car Adapter is a device that plugs into your car's OBD-II diagnostic data port, where it transmits data about your car's health and your driving in real time to the Automatic app on your Bluetooth-connected smartphone.

The free Automatic app analyzes your the adapter's data, giving you more insight into your car and the way you use it. It also engages in active analysis, detecting and responding to crashes, inefficient driving, and even excessive speed.

Automatic can help you save fuel, control the appliances in your smart home, coach your teen driver, decode your Check Engine light, and connect to your favorite apps. There are no subscription fees and no batteries to charge. Simply install the Automatic app, plug in your adapter, and connect over Bluetooth to get going.

Fuel Use Analysis
Your Automatic Car Adapter transmits your fuel use via Bluetooth, so you can see the cost and MPG of your trips on your smartphone to find the most efficient route. Automatic gives tips for more fuel-efficient driving, and can warn you with a beep when you're wasting gas.
Check Engine Light
The adapter decodes your check engine light through its OBD-II connection, just like a mechanic. Automatic uses this data to let you know what's wrong, and can clear the light for minor issues. Larger problems sometimes require a professional, and your Automatic app can point you towards a well-reviewed mechanic in the vicinity.
Speed Limit Alert
When enabled, a gentle audio warning lets you know when you're exceeding the speed limit.
Parking Spot Memory
When you park, Automatic remembers the exact location of your car so you don't have to search. It can even send its location to family members if you're sharing a car.
Trip Logging
Easily expense your mileage and fuel costs by exporting your trip data on its own or to third party apps.
Low Fuel Warning
If your car supports fuel warnings, you'll receive an alert that you're running low before the light comes on.
Crash Alert
The Automatic Adapter's accelerometer can detect an impact and notify a Crash Alert agent, who will then call your phone to confirm that you need help. If necessary, the agent will contact the local authorities and and also call you so that they can speak to you until help arrives. The agent can also call or leave a message with pre-selected emergency contacts, letting them know what happened and that help is on the way.
Agents are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in the US, and there are no subscription fees. Please note that in the event of damage to your phone or Link, or loss of Bluetooth, GPS, or cellular signals, this function will not be able to work.
The free License+ app brings new drivers and their parents closer together to stop backseat driving by monitoring driving habits and creating safe driving goals.
Distraction-Free Driving
If you're an Android user, you can set Automatic to automatically switch your phone to Do Not Disturb mode when driving, so you can keep your eyes on the road instead of on your phone.
Web Dashboard
The Automatic Web Dashboard lets you gain deeper insight into your driving data. You can spot trends, sort trips, and export your data as a CSV file.
App Integration
Automatic enhances your driving experience by seamlessly integrating with popular apps and services through the Automatic App Gallery.
  • Concur, Expensify, and Xero: Log your mileage for easy and accurate expense reports.
  • Harry's Lap Timer and DashCommand: View detailed performance stats for your vehicle, updated in real time.
  • IFTTT: Create triggers and actions connected to your driving, such as switching on your Internet-connected lights when you pull into the driveway, logging your trips to a Google Docs spreadsheet, or emailing your mechanic when your check engine light comes on.
  • Jawbone: See how your physical activity and habits impact your driving, and vice-versa.
  • Ford SYNC: Users can connect their SYNC-enabled vehicles with their iPhone, making it possible to activate SYNC or Siri from the steering wheel.
Smartwatch Integration
With a Pebble smartwatch, you can see where you parked by simply looking at your wrist. The Apple watch shows the same information, and also allows you to tag a given trip a "business."
Car Compatibility
Automatic works with most gasoline, diesel, and hybrid cars made since 1996. Only vehicles purchased in the US are supported, and the device does not function outside of the US. Please consult the manufacturer's website to make sure your car is compatible.
Smartphone Compatibility
iOS: iPhone 5 and newer running iOS 7 and above.
Android: Most devices running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and above. The HTC One requires Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and above. The BLU Advance 4.0, BLU Dash 5.0, and BLU Life Play S are not supported.
