Please note that we have not sold the Gen 1 adapter since May 2015.

Here are some helpful resources regarding the many features that Automatic offers:
Note that only about 50% of cars report their fuel level generically via the OBD port. This function is necessary for the Low Fuel Warning feature and in order for Automatic to automatically detect when you've filled up your tank so we can more specifically pinpoint the gas station at which you filled up and get the exact price from that station. If we can't automatically detect fill-ups, the app calculates fuel prices based on the average in the area where you do most of your driving. You can  select the fuel grade you typically use. Additionally, in some cars we're able to detect more accurate MPGs than others.

Many apps in our App Gallery are available on the Gen 1 adapter though iOS and Android availability varies. Look for the apps that work with Automatic Lite. Be sure to check the "Requirements" on any given App details page.
