My question is that when I set up OBD Fusion, the Automatic app creates another Bluetooth connection in addition to the low energy Bluetooth connection. With a healthy car battery, is it safe to leave all the Bluetooth connections on and both Automatic and OBD Fusion apps running after turning the car off? I fully trust the Automatic app with the low energy Bluetooth connection, but is the additional Bluetooth connection okay on the car battery? Will the Automatic Pro shut off the Bluetooth when the car is turned off?

Hi Luke- The Automatic adapter goes into low power mode after it detects "ignition off" from your car. Keeping the BT connections on your phone for our app & the OBDFusion app and keeping those apps open should have no affect on your car battery.
