It would be nice if the automatic device had a led light that would blink when plugged in correctly and ignition on and that would turn solid once connected with smartphone.

Hi everyone! I have an update regarding the audio alert mentioned in this discussion: the Connection Tone feature in available in today’s release for iOS (v2.1). At the start of each trip, the Link will let you know Automatic is connected and working properly by playing this tone. If Automatic can’t connect within the first minute of your drive, it’ll play a different “disconnection” tone to let you know something’s wrong.

If this happens, simply launching the Automatic app will fix the problem in most cases. Otherwise, the new Connection Troubleshooting Guide in the app Settings → Connection screen will tell you what to do.

See this FAQ for more details.
