Amazon currently has the Automatic PRO Connected Car OBD II Adapter on sale for $99. This car adapter is usually priced at $129, and this marks one of the very few times it has been marked down to under $100. Which makes this the perfect time to pick one up for your vehicle.
The Automatic PRO is similar to the regular Automatic (which is now no longer in existence). It's a car adapter that plugs into the OBD II port in your vehicle. This is most commonly found under your steering wheel. With the Automatic PRO, you can get tips on how to get better gas mileage on every tank of gas in your vehicle. You can also decipher why your check engine light is on, as the app can read the error code and then tell you in plain-english what is actually wrong, which is a good thing here. Finally, it will tell you where you parked. This is pretty important, especially if you have a popular car like a Honda Civic or Hyundai Sonata, and everyone else has one. The Automatic PRO has 3G connectivity – which is free for the life of the adapter – and it will connect to your smartphone over 3G to let you know where you parked. This is also a great car adapter to use to be able to write off miles on your tax returns, as you can track all of your trips, and see how well you drove.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $119/year (or $59/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
