Automatic Smart Driving Assistant Is A Car Diagnostic Tool For Your Smartphone [Video]

Are you looking for a car diagnostic tool that works with your smartphone and can help you save money on gas or a trip to the mechanic? Enter the 'Automatic Smart Driving Assistant'.

Automatic (for short) is a neat little product made by the company Automatic Labs. The product consists of an 'Automatic Link' and a companion smartphone app. The Link plugs into your car's OBD-II port and relays diagnostic information to the smartphone app wirelessly over Bluetooth 4.0.

Automatic was launched last year and was initially compatible only with iOS devices. But as of yesterday, the device is compatible with Android too.

The Android version will do everything the iOS version does except the 'Crash Alert' feature which will be added later this year. This feature alerts 911 or a family member if you've been in a car crash.

Other features that Automatic includes are...

- Parking locator
- Check Engine Light feature
- Drive Score with fuel efficiency insights
- Trip data
- Support for multiple vehicles

The product has received good reviews from sites like CNN and CNET. The Link will cost you $99.95 and can be purchased either directly from the manufacturer or from third-party retailers. The smartphone app is FREE for both iOS and Android.

AppRadio users can relate to Automatic as it is similar to what DashCommand does. DashCommand is fully AppRadio compatible and gives very detailed information about your car right on your AppRadio. The app requires an independent OBD-II device to communicate with. Compared to Automatic, other OBD-II devices cost much less.

The companion app can be downloaded from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android).
