With multiple phones logged into the same account, managing multiple cars, which is the ONLY way currently to configure Automatic Pro.
How can one phone have notifications for one car on, and off for others, and another phone have different car notifications?

Hi django,

Unfortunately that isn't currently possible with the Automatic Pro adapter since the Notifications setting is account based, not car based. I wish I had better news!

My wife and I share my Automatic account, which has both of our Automatic Pros and cars registered to it.  Updating the settings for both cars on my iPhone also updates my wife's phone’s settings.  Now the only notifications that are turned on for both cars are Crash Alert, Issue Detected/Cleared, and Vehicle Started.  For both cars I’ve turned off notifications for Monthly Updates, Vehicle Parked, and Weekly Updates.  This way she & I can be alerted when the other starts driving (thus lessening the need for “On My Way” texts) without enduring excessive notifications. 

Of course either of us can temporarily toggle Vehicle Parked back on whenever we want to keep closer tabs on the other.  It is reassuring for us to have real-time access to where both vehicles are, and we can just click on the app's Insights button whenever curious about last week's Driving Stats or last month's Drive Style.  Fortunately, my iPhone's Do Not Disturb mode silences Automatic's notifications while preserving them for whenever I wake up from a nap or whatever.

Now I'm hoping Automatic will make a Wife Pro with features including Anniversary/Birthday Alert, Bad Mood Detected, and Don't Get Her Started.  : )
