Automatic seeks to empower drivers with knowledge about themselves and their cars so they can be safer and drive smarter. We believe you shouldn’t have to buy a new car to have a better driving experience, and that the phone in your pocket can bring the future of driving to today’s automobiles. Automatic helps you make changes to your driving behavior so you can save on gas, always remembers where you parked, diagnoses your check engine light, and automatically calls for help in a crash while notifying your loved ones.

There are other OBD2 reader's that give you more engine detail, but since this has IFTTT support and gives you easy acceleration and gas milage stats, I chose this. With IFTTT I used this to track how much shopping I do on a weekly basis and set it up to turn on my lights when my engine shuts off when I get home.
My initial reason for buying this was that my dumb check engine light kept coming on and I would have to take it to the shop and have them read and clear it, and usually it was for something dumb. When I got this, it told me what the issue was (not just a code that I have to lookup) and how to fix it. I could also clear the engine light.
However, as I started to use it, it started saving me money on my driving. I have become a better driver because of it because I know something's watching me. Great to newer drivers in my opinion and also tells you how much you really spend on gas.

The Automatic Link Smart Driving Assistant is an interesting new product geared for people who want to optimize their driving habits to improve fuel economy. Unfortunately the product provides very few benefits to most drivers who are already conscious of saving fuel. For example, the product beeps to let you know that you are driving over 70 MPH, braking severely, or accelerating too quickly. While this is not necessarily a bad thing, the problem is that most drivers will know when when they are doing these things and will not need the driving assistant to remind them.
Another major negative of the Smart Driving Assistant is that it you must pair it to your phone in order for it to function. It does not have a memory of its own so if you do not connect it to your phone it will not function or give you feedback. The problem with this is that you cannot connect your phone to your bluetooth headset while driving. The majority of drivers out there will likely rather pair...
