plugging into the same mechanic port used for servicing, ‘automatic’ – the smart driving assistant device provides the possibility to sync to a user’s car via using bluetooth – linking to the car’s on-board computer using a smartphone’s GPS and data plan to upgrade vehicle capabilities. once connected to the ‘automatic app’, the system manifests sophisticated energy-saving algorithms to learn about one’s driving style – giving the user subtle audio cues when they waste gas by rough braking, speeding or rapid acceleration. the program also displays detailed info about weekly trips, and can even detect when the ‘check engine’ light comes on – troubleshooting engine trouble codes with solutions to help save costly trips to the shop. additionally, people will never forget wherethey parked, as the device remembers location coordinates – a support feature which can also come in handy for car-sharing networks.

  • kind of sucks that you have to give a credit card number to find out if your car is supported…even if they don’t immediately charge, the presumption is enough to turn me off to a promising product
