So I moved my automatic pro from my car to my fiances to detect a check engine light and reset it. Once I put it back in my car I figured it would detect the change in VIN numbers and update driving information for my car on my morning commute. This was not the case. It is still syncing data to her car. How Do I fix this issue, and how do i successful move between cars in the future to avoid this issue?

Hi Jack,

You can move the Pro adapter to another vehicle, you just have to remember to run Setup each time you move the adapter, even if you're moving it back to a vehicle that was previously installed. To do so, open the Automatic app and go to the Main Menu. Tap on Add a Vehicle and follow the in-app instructions.

If you are moving it back to a previously installed vehicle, this will not create a duplicate entry. The app will recognize the VIN and merge them.
