In your compatibility section you state that it is not compatible with cars before 1996.
But I have 1991 Nissan 300ZX which is computer run, one of the early cars that did; is it true that it would not be compatible with it?
Do you know if it has OBD-II connector?
Also, I am thinking of installing a new head unit with ApplePlay, can Automatic show up as an app on it?

Hey Tunc,

Thanks for reaching out.

The reason we support only cars manufactured for purchase in the U.S. after 1996 is because Automatic operates off of the OBD-II standard. It will not work with cars having an OBD-I port.

As for CarPlay support, at this time, we don't have an app that supports CarPlay. We may in the future, but at this time, it isn't an open SDK for development.
