‘Automatic’ Links iPhone To Your Car’s Data Port, Helping You (And Your Car) To Be More Fuel-Efficient


Since 1996, nearly every car in the U.S has been fitted with a ‘OBD II’ data port. Until now, the port has gone largely unused for a large group of drivers.

Automatic, though, aims to give this port the usage it rightly deserves.

Automatic is a physical link which hooks your iPhone up to your car. This link then serves not only as your fuel-efficiency assistant, systematically monitoring your daily driving habits and the routes you take and alerting you when you make an action which may cost your gas bill to go up, but this wireless link – (which works with the Bluetooth stack built into both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S) – can also be used in the case of an accident, automatically alerting friends and family of your current situation.

In addition to the above benefits, Automatic also wants to make finding your car in a parking lot a more pleasurable experience — so, with the help of the link’s official app, Automatic will log your car’s location and display a map, meaning you can locate your car whenever you happen to be.
