If I buy an Automatic Pro, can/should I try to sell my year old Automatic?

I don't know if there is a trade-in program, or if I should sell my Automatic on eBay. Our other car is a Prius Plug-In, which is not compatible with Automatic.

Hi Joyce,

There isn't a trade-in program, unfortunately. You can sell it, it's not attached to any of your data, but keep in mind that the Automatic Classic app that it works with is no longer in development. That's something that a purchaser would want to know. 

I hope this helps!

I was under the impression that there was your VIN recorded somewhere in the device. Do you have to at least disassociate the hardware with your account?

Hi Darth,

That's technically true, but nobody has access to that data without your credentials. Once someone creates a new account and goes through setup, any remaining data is wiped.
