Automatic: A Bluetooth Gadget and App to Connect Your Car to Your Smartphone

Cars have been fairly quiet on the smartphone scene so Automatic’s making a very loud entry with its Bluetooth enabled app – a device smart enough to call 911 when you are involved in a crash.

Automatic is revolutionary because it takes your car’s standard, data connector to record and feed data to your smartphone via a small Bluetooth antennae. Are you a driver that applies the brake too fast? Automatic will make an audible signal and record your habit to help you improve your gas mileage. The driving app can help you determine what ails your engine. When you have a ‘check your engine’ light on, the app gives you a push notification. It knows what each engine error code means and can tell you how to fix it or show you the nearest mechanic.

The app can also help you with the most annoying problem of all – finding your car. Use this pre-order form to see if your car is supported.
