Streaming apps are the one I know of.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for sharing your question with us, and welcome to the Automatic community! As Larry pointed out, streaming apps aren't currently supported for Android, but we're making great progress. Additionally, custom labels are only iOS at this time.

I hope this helps answer your question, and please let us know if you have any others: we're always happy to help. :)

Thank you for this update. I just bought the Automatic, and would like to see it work with OBD Fusion. I bought it because I really want the performance apps. I'm sure it'll do nice things like tell me when I how fast I went, and whether I braked or accelerated too fast, but I'd really like to have the real time meters and information provided by OBD Fusion. I mean it's available to iOS users. It must be possible.

I look forward to this becoming a quick reality.

Hi Eric –

Thanks for your purchase of Automatic, we're so happy to have you as a user. :) We're definitely working on extending the support of OBD Fusion and other performance apps to our Android users, please keep an eye on this community for updates. :)

I just purchased an Automatic for my truck. I have an android phone and contacted ODB Fusion. They tell me that they are waiting on Automatic to complete a firmware update. Since the most recent reply to this query is 5months old, I'm just trying to get an update on the process.

Hey Dusty,
Thanks for reaching out and welcome to Automatic!

We are getting closer to bringing performance streaming applications to Android. We don’t have an exact ETA on when these will be officially supported, but we are working closely with our partners to get it done. While our SDK is complete, we have some final hurdles to get over in ensuring everything works correctly. We will provide updates as soon as there is more to share.
