Why can't the adapters be used as Bluetooth trackers as well (similar to Tile and TrackR)?

For example, if a car was stolen but the Automatic adapter was still plugged in, then someone else that is close or passes by the stolen car can alert the owner (if they also had the Automatic app running on their device).

Hi Johnny-

Thanks for the feedback. That's just not the product we've built. The intention of Automatic is not to track down a stolen vehicle. There are other products on the market that do solely that and do it well.

Why can't Automatic do both? I don't see why not since the adapters have Bluetooth.

There's a whole lot of infrastructure to build out a functionality like you're proposing and would require theft detection to be something we focus on.
