Apple retail stores begin carrying a car-tracking device named Automatic

Apple retail stores have begun carrying an iPhone-connected car-tracking device called Automatic. The device connects to a car’s OBD-II port and then beams driving details like fuel use, mileage, engine status, and more back to an iPhone over Bluetooth. Automatic looks to simplify the wealth of data that they can collect, like how often you hit the brakes too hard and how much you’re spending on gas. The device sells for nearly $100 and has only had limited exposure because it’s only been sold online, but it could begin seeing a lot more success now that it’s placed among Apple Stores’ wealth of tech-savvy consumers.
