I'd like to try out some of the apps available, however they all require the V2 adapter. How can I tell if I already have it without buying an app?

Open up Automatic and go to settings (the man silhouette icon). Tap your car under Vehicles and at the bottom of that screen it'll tell you the adapter "generation".

Hi, Shawn. Welcome to the community! You can check out this "How do I know if I own a 2nd generation Automatic adapter?" FAQ to determine which adapter you have. But basically, if you look at the PIN on the back of your adapter and see all numbers, you have a 1st generation adapter. If you see numbers and letters, then you have a 2nd generation adapter. :)
