I have a radar in my car that pulls some of its information from the app on my phone (i.e red light cameras, speed limit, etc.), but it requires me to open the app every time I want that data to appear on my radar.

Is it possible for the gen 2 adapter to automatically launch that app when the adapter powers up?

For example, users can go to their car settings menu and choose something like "load app" then the user will be presented with a screen/list of installed apps that can be automatically loaded when automatic starts.

Thanks for the idea, Jason. Have you had a chance to explore our IFTTT integration? You could create a recipe using Pushbullet or Launch Center Pro to launch your radar app when the "ignition on" event is acknowledged by the Automatic app. Here's a link to a similar recipe that launches Waze upon "ignition on." You may also want to check out this related community topic.
