Automatic: An Auto Accessory To Make Your Drive Smarter

First off, it should be noted I'm not affiliated with this company in any way, shape or form...

http://www.automatic.com/

"Your Car and Smartphone, Connected: Just plug the Automatic Link into your car's data port. Your car and smartphone will automatically connect whenever you drive, wirelessly."

Anyone have this already? I just ordered one today.

Between what it does on a smartphone and when it's paired with some IFTTT actions, could be a handy tool.

Yeah, I've seen those apps and they certainly have some great functions.

I think what I like about Automatic is the tie-in's with the IFTTT automated actions. Like having the lights in your house turn on when you get home and park your car or helping to keep your friends/spouses up to date with where you are, etc.

Don't do it - you should be looking at about $10-$14 dollars
