Don’t worry if your car didn’t come with a fancy on-board computer — just plug in Automatic and go. This smart gadget plugs into the same port that mechanics use to service your car, then links with your smartphone over Bluetooth 4.0 to provide data to a dedicated app.
With the app running, you’ll be able to see an overall score of how you’re driving and how you could save more money, details about how much you drive, where, and your actual MPGs, and notifications when your check engine light comes on — along with a description of what’s actually causing the problem. It’ll even automatically notify 911 with your location in a crash, making it not just a potential money-saver, but a potential life-saver.
The Automatic is available for pre-order ( $70 ) here…
