Just like many other companies in the United States, the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted our business. With fewer consumers purchasing and leasing vehicles and drivers on the road, we unfortunately do not see a path forward for our business. These are unprecedented times, and with so much uncertainty ahead, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Automatic connected car product, service and platform. We will be shutting down all operations at 11:59 pm, PT, on May 28, 2020 and, as a result, your service will end on that time.
This is highly unfortunate. I have an Automatic dongle hooked up in my car and I love the thing. Only a couple months ago my Check Engine light came on as my car sputtered. My Automatic dongle worked as advertised, giving me an idea to what was going on with my vehicle and something to report to the mechanic. I hate this is happening to a quality company.
If anyone knows of a reputable replacement, do fill me in. I have a 16 year old vehicle and enjoy this peace of mind.
