I recently switched phones. How do I link the new phone with the Automatic Pro device. All of the articles listed seem to reference a reconnection option under settings, but I do not have one. If I re-do the set-up with the new phone will it create a separate vehicle profile on my account or merge them?

Hi, Erik. No need. You should just be able to download the Pro app onto your new phone and log into your account from there. The previous method was for our adapters that rely on a Bluetooth connection between the adapter and phone to function.

Amy, Thanks for the quick reply. I was hoping to re-establish Bluetooth connections so I could use OBD Fusion. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Ah! In that case, yes, you'll want that BT connection. Do this by selecting "ADD A VEHICLE" from the main menu. Once it recognizes the VIN, it will just set your car up as the same vehicle but on the new phone. All previous trip data, etc will be preserved. 

Please note these instructions for using OBDFusion with Automatic Pro
