    Great device, lots of potential!

    Lets dive into this little car tweaking wonder. It's plug and play makes this a simple operation. I was up and running within 10min. The device correctly gathered my VIN and linked to the App. The App is fairly streamlined and is easily operated. As others have noticed and the description on the packaging, this little guy looks for three major driving habits. 1) driving speed 2) hard braking & 3) fast accelerating. They have not clear scope as to what their margins are (other than the under 70mph). I would be nice to have more flexibility with the settings, but this is supposed to save you fuel. If they've done the calculations correctly perhaps that isn't an issue, but as a tech guy, it's always nice to have options.

    It would be nice to be able to have real time driving stats, but the app computes fairly fast after the trip has ended, not much of a problem for me, as it's one less thing to distract my driving. I would love to for this app to have a settings tab to identify if you're using your vehicle for work. It would be nice for the road warrior to know what he/she is driving for mpg, time. This would allow you to report more easily for taxes at the end of the year (all documented!)

    My only gripe would be that I have two vehicles and would love to just unplug this one and swap it in and go. It seems that you lose all your data if you do this, instead you have to purchase a second unit. We shouldn't have to purchase a second unit, nor should we lose our data for which we have been accumulating. Would love to see an off app storage for data.

    All in all I am really loving this concept and functionality of this neat car tool. Hopefully there will be much more to come in the coming year!

    Future of the connected car is here

    Automatic might not do everything you'd fancy it to do (for now), but what they promised on the box works magically great.

    Get it for yourself and make it a gift for the loved ones.

    works very well for me at this point

    I use this for keep track of my miles. I'm starting my own bussiness and i need to know how many miles from point A to B to C and so on. I also need do know what messages (codes) my trucks computer is sending. I have a code that comes up but I have no idea what is going on. My truck runs great but from time to time it codes. I'm hoping to use this Automatic so that I can fix what is going on. I want this give this 5 stars but the MPG's are off, well from what i can tell. I have only used this for 100 miles. but I will update my review asap when I know the real MPG's. I look forward to see what the makers can add to make this a KILLER, MUST HAVE item!!!! I would love to see something added so that I can preplan my trip and see what "MPG's" I would get if I took the trip. I will update my review this soon. I have High hope for automatic!! I want to add one more thing! When looking at the maps part I would love to have satellite view. I need to zoom in and see what is around me. When I have my trailer I want to know before hand where I can turn around.
