I have an Automatic PRO and cannot find the brief stops feature or how to tag a trip as business. Please direct me to the right location.

Those answer my questions.  However, I didn't buy the original Automatic device because the device wasn't up to snuff yet, even though the app had the features I needed.  So, insufficient hardware, great app.

Now, the Automatic Pro has the cellular connectivity and is now up to snuff, but you lobotomized the app so that it no longer has the great features I needed.  Now, great hardware, insufficient app.  
When will these features be added?  Unless you can give me a date of when they will be added, I will be returning the Automatic Pro.  It's just not a good product without both the great hardware and the great software.  You should have waited to bring the device to market until the software was ready and full featured.

I'm sorry you feel that way, Kerry. To be perfectly candid, the Automatic Pro is a different product and may not wind up with all the same features of the original app. Trip tagging is in the works but I don't have a release date. We actually never publish or promise release dates as it's too easy for that to backfire with an unforeseen setback. I can tell you that it's slated for the next major app update.

I don't know if brief stops will be incorporated into the new app. The product team is weighing the value of the features of the original app along with potential new features that are possible now to make decisions about the roadmap.

I understand you can't give dates for features unless they've already been advertised.  I stand by what I said about it being a mistake to release the product with incomplete software features.  Given the likelihood of the features I need being added (after all, they are no-brainers for business travelers) I'll give it some time.  All I can say is that I truly hope it's worth it.  I will be vocal if the features were not worth the wait or are poorly implemented. 

For now, I'll work on my own solution to implement the features I need.

Thanks for your honest and considerate reply.

We just released app updates to App Store & Google Play Store that include the trip tagging feature.

Thanks for the update.  I tried it out and it looks good.  I went back and tagged my business trips.
