All About Automatic
We just released version 1.2 of the app and we’d love for you to learn more about it.
If you’re new to Automatic, welcome! Automatic is an iPhone app that pairs with a piece of intelligent hardware called the Automatic Link that plugs into the OBD-II port of your car. The Link connects your phone to your car’s onboard computer while you drive. All cars manufactured for sale in the U.S. since 1996 have an OBD-II port and most are compatible with Automatic.
Automatic is really an auto assistant: Automatic helps you adjust your driving habits to save gas and remembers where you parked. It’s also a car service app that 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.
If you have any questions or would like to keep in touch, join us in the customer community to ask questions and share feedback with us and our crew of amazing users.
The Automatic team is growing, and we’re looking for hardware, server, iOS, and Android engineers, but we always want to meet interesting, smart people who want to help make Automatic better in new and exciting ways. We’d love for you to join us.
