During a trip I stopped to fill up the gas tank then started driving again. It appears that the Automatic app uses the engine being turned off as a trigger to mark the end of a drive. In this case, I would like to see the combined information of the two legs of the trip. One possible way to handle this is to have a Pause button (potentially with labels such as Fuel Stop) so that it does not end the trip. Alternatively, and more involved, would be to have the option to combining back-to-back trips into a single trip manually via the app. This may be possible automatically since the app could detect that the stop and starting points match but then it would be fooled into thinking that my return home from work and then leaving for work the next day (without any trips in between) are continuations of the same trip.

Thanks for all the great ideas folks! Our goal is for trips in the timeline to match what people conceptually consider a "trip" and have the process be, well, (lowercase) automatic!

Segments of what appear to be one trip now can get combined. Just make sure this feature is enabled in your settings! Read more about this update here.
