Automatic Link (OBDII bluetooth gizmo)

Hello -

Yet another bluetooth gizmo for $70 (iOS only) :

Driving system Automatic makes you and your car smarter | Mobile | Geek.com
There’s a lot of individual services that work well connecting your smartphone to your car. Automatic hopes to create a unifying experience, by adding features that improve both the person driving the car and the services attached to the car.

The data port on most vehicles is capable of much more than what most people realize. Using a simple Bluetooth adapter for that data port, you can pair your smartphone to your car and access the information that is provided by the onboard computer. This information is useful in certain, specific situations. If you have an app that can turn that information into an app-driven instrument panel, you can access a ton of information. There aren’t many apps out there that do more with the information, which is important in order to be useful to anyone who isn’t just a data addict. Automatic is taking the information and adding context alongside location and mobile data to offer a new user experience.

The Automatic system is pretty simple in concept. The app takes information from you as you drive, and applies logic to determine how you are completing basic tasks. If you accelerate too quickly from the start or slam on the brakes for no reason, the information is collected and analyzed. If Automatic thinks you would get better gas mileage or better performance by driving in a different manner, the app will give you simple notification tones while you are driving. As you continue to drive and adjust how you drive, the idea is that your mileage and performance will improve over time. Combined with external data collection, like how much you pay at the pump each time, you’re provided with a timeline of how well your vehicle is performing. ...
