The check engine light — that enigmatic indicator that can signal anything from a loose gas cap or old spark plugs, to a worn out catalytic converter or an empty windshield fluid reservoir — is hardly an effective way of remaining in-tune with your car. But with Automatic ($100) you can finally decode that uninformative light, letting you know what kind of help your car needs and potentially saving a trip to the mechanic. And that’s not all it does: helping improve your car’s fuel economy, alerting emergency response in case of a crash, and automatically remembering where you parked are just a few incredibly-useful features.
Automatic plugs into the same port your mechanic uses when you take your car in for service. It’s easily accessible near the steering wheel.
Add in that its beautifully-designed iOS and Android apps are constantly updated with new functionality, and you get the partner your car always needed.
