If I's a deaf person (or just have really bad hearing) and I drive, should i even bother with this device? Seems this device relies on bleep sounds to alert me about stuff Can it cause my phone to vibrate in my pocket instead?

It doesn't cause your phone to vibrate right now as the alerts come from the Link itself. However, that's a great question. Would you mind if I change this to an "Idea" topic and word the title as a suggestion?

Also, I should mention that there are many customers who turn the audio alerts off because they don't like them yet they still get value from Automatic. So to answer your original topic, sure, you can certainly still use Automatic even if you can't hear the alerts! There are other features and we'll be continuing to build more!

Greetings, Henry. Right now, we don't have plans to implement a vibration feature for hard alerts, but later down the road, we may reconsider it. Thanks again for your idea!
