I currently use Automatic Pro in my car and am taking a road trip this weekend. I have read that you can use Automatic in multiple cars but I also read this is somewhat of a hassle? I simply want to take it out and put it in the car we are taking on our road trip. I then want to return it full time back to my car.

I am sure not to lose my old data if I do this, right? I not only don't want to lose it I want to pick up where I left off. I also would like to be able to see the stats for the temporary car later.

Can someone confirm this does work this way?

Hi Chad - Yes, this will work. It's not much of a hassle at all. Here's an FAQ about this.

You won't lose your other car's data & you can keep the road trip car's data in your account after the fact. Just be sure to re-setup your original car again when you're back so the adapter knows it's been moved.

The only wrinkle crops up if, later, someone else ends up wanting to set up Automatic Pro with their own account on your road trip car. Currently, once a car's been set up once on Pro and associated with an account, it can't be set up with another account without first deleting it from the original account owner's account.
