Gadget of the Week - Automatic Car Adapter

Gadget of the Week - Automatic Car Adapter

While for some the daily commute down the highway is a much-needed break from technology, for others – the Geeks among us, if you will – the car is just another site ripe for nerdy innovation, begging for us to plug in and play around.

Enter the Automatic Adapter, an all-in-one gadget and app bundle that seamlessly syncs your car up to the rest of your digital life.

Using the Adapter – which plugs into the standard diagnostic port available in most vehicles made since 1996 – and the free Automatic app, you can easily connect your car to your smartphone, tablet, or Apple Watch via Bluetooth.

Once your adapter is set up, you can easily use Automatic’s software to monitor and cover all sorts of things. Use Automatic to track your gas mileage and easily submit it to your employer for reimbursement or tax coverage; locate your parked car using the built-in GPS; sign up for emergency collision services; or even diagnose your engine problems without having to hire a mechanic.

When it comes right down to it, your car is a computer – shouldn’t you be getting the most out of it? If you’re looking to unlock your vehicle’s potential and effortlessly bring it into your digital lifestyle, the Automatic Adapter retails for $99.95.
