This car adapter from Automatic is a pretty sweet device to have in your car. It plugs into the OBDII port - which is commonly found under the steering wheel. What this adapter does is it connects to your smartphone over Bluetooth and using the Automatic app it can relay all sorts of information to you. Including alerting you to the Check Engine light being on, but also letting you know why the light is on. On top of that, the adapter will let you know how many miles you can travel before needing to fill the gas tank again - this is measured by the last 150 miles you've driven.
Automatic also gives you a driving score. It deducts points when you accelerate to fast, or brake hard. You also get points deducted for going over 70MPH. Why is this important? Because it can affect your gas mileage. By leaving a red light slowly, or braking slowly, you can extend that gas in your car and get even more mileage out of each tank of gas. Finally, Automatic can keep track of where you parked. So no more wondering where you parked your car. Just look at your phone and you'll know exactly where it is.
The Automatic Connected Car Adapter is available on the Android Headlines Store for just $89.95 right now.
