Ratings and Reviews
Love the idea and clean interface
I love the idea of this product and the clean interface of the Automatic Pro app, looks and feels way better then the competition. However, I can never get the Pro adapter to get past the “Registering Adapter” stage. If it never registers, I’m sure it won’t be tracking or be able to take care of any of the other important features. Maybe it’s the 3G area I live in. If that’s the case, I’d rather it connect via my WiFi or Bluetooth connection. Whatever the case, I really have high hopes for this product and want it to succeed. And I’m sure since I bought through a third party competitor, there’s nothing they will do for me.
What really needs to happen for this company to succeed, is; (1) the bugs need to be fixed as soon as possible, (2) updates need to be pushed to the App Store, (3) connection needs to be enhanced, (4) customer service needs to reply ASAP and try their best to resolve questions and concerns and (5) listen to the customers on possible features and enhancements.
If these things can be taken care of, I’d absolutely love this product. For now, it’s a brick that I can’t use. Please fix what needs to be fixed so I can reissue my review.

Time saver but use to be more efficient..
I use this app every day to track about 7-10 trips each day and 400 miles a week. I love the ease of use but this app has slowly lost features that were time saving and helpful. With rich notifications, the app once allowed tagging as business from the notification...this is no longer an option. I now have to open the app every single time, which partially defeats the purpose of having a cellular data feature since the app still has to be opened to do this. I also miss the ability to see hard breaks and accelerations as well as trip ratings. This feature in app was helpful so I could better adjust my driving for efficiency.
Considering the classic app appears to still have these features and so does the dashboard, I feel the pro app should too. Since recent updates it appears the pro users now pay more for their adapter and get less in return.
Please bring these back, they help make the process of tagging and tracking easier.

Worst customer service ever!
Seriously, one of the worst companies I have ever felt with. DO NOT use this company. I bought their product a year ago. Installed it and began using it with relatively no issue. Every now and again the app would not connect to the adapter. It was finicky, but would connect again in a day or so or when I had a better cell connection. I thought nothing of it. Until it wouldn’t connect for days no matter what I did. So I email customer service. They tell me to reset the device, reconnect it and it should work. I did and it didn’t. Then they tell me my vehicle is not supported. I said I’ve been using it for a year. They said use it in another car... which of course, I don’t want to nor do I have... I requested a refund. They told me they can’t do that and they have “asked their manager”. How do you tell a customer for a year that their product is not compatible. Terrible practice and a company I will never recommend...

Thank you for the review, and sorry about the poor experience. Any prospective user of the Automatic Pro adapter should first check the compatibility of their vehicle, which they can do here: https://automatic.com/cars/. The Automatic app does not have the ability to determine if your vehicle is compatible.
Our return policy is 45 days for orders that were made directly from www.automatic.com, no questions asked, but as you mentioned in your review, you purchased it a year ago. For that reason, we weren't able to provide a refund.
