Automatic has unveiled their newest connected car adapter, the Automatic Pro. Priced at $129.95, the Pro looks almost identical to previous versions of their adapter minus the new color scheme, but this new version has 3G connectivity. I know what you’re thinking. Yay 3G connectivity, but boo for monthly subscription fees. Guess what? The Automatic Pro does not require a subscription. That’s right. It offers real-time connectivity with no ongoing service fees. Updated features include a car app store, real-time vehicle location tracking, a new and improved Crash Alert feature, check engine light diagnostic info, fuel level and more (these features may be different depending on your vehicle’s make, model and year).
I enjoyed reviewing the older version of the adapter and would love to see how it compares to the new version.
