Automatic is a little gizmo that connects to your car's data port, the place mechanics plug in to check on your car's condition. The device then wirelessly reports to your phone helping you avoid activities that can waste gas or increase your vehicle's wear-and-tear. And that's just a few of the things it does.
The Automatic Link talks to your car's onboard computer and uses your smartphone's GPS and data plan to upgrade your car's capabilities.
The Automatic Link works with just about any gasoline engine car sold in the United States since 1996.
