SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Automatic Labs (automatic.com), today announced the availability of Automatic: Your Smart Driving Assistant in more than 250 Apple retail stores nationwide and on the Apple Online Store.
Automatic is an iPhone app that pairs with a tiny piece of intelligent hardware called the Automatic Link that connects your iPhone to your car’s onboard computer when you drive. Automatic is a Smart Driving Assistant. It helps drivers adjust their driving habits to save gas, decode and clear their car’s “check engine” light, and remember where they parked.
