Hi I would love to buy automatic, however, I'm already using the obd2 port for another device. Is it possible to use automatic by utilizing an obd2 splitter so I'm able to use both devices simultaneously? Have you tested any obd2 splitters to confirm they will work with automatic?

Thanks for reaching out and for your interest in Automatic :)

Unfortunately, we don't really support the use of a splitter. There are a variety of reasons, but most of all the use of additional OBD adapters can provide less than accurate data and Crash Alert won't likely work properly or at all. 

Some users have found success using a splitter, which can be found here, but in that post, a few members from the Automatic team outline the reasons we don't recommend it.

Hope this helps!
