Maintenance Reminders

Would be nice to have Automatic remind me when it is time for scheduled maintenance, especially oil changes.

The Link/App should certainly be able to track mileage and time since last oil change and then send me push notification saying its been X,XXX miles or XX months since last oil change. Mileage and time intervals would be user customizable preferences.

Getting more fancy, the app could track the average speed, distance, and time (and possibly oil/coolant temperature, engine load) for each driving session and calculate how "severe" the average driving conditions are on the oil and act as a sort of "oil life monitor" system that is found is some makes. Frequent short trips and cold starts would cause the oil life to degrade more quickly than mostly highway travel.

Hi Alissa,

Thank you for the feedback and suggestion! Unfortunately there is no update regarding maintenance reminders at this time.

I'm a new AutomaticPro owner.  From reading these threads about requesting new functionality and how simplistic it would be to implement vs "other priorities", it sounds like they may have very few or a single software developer(s) working on the application.    The problem appears to be that they have way too few resources allocated to supporting this product.  Perhaps one of the community members will implement a simple app using the published API to provide this functionality and share it with us.
