Cool New Automotive Gadget

automatic

The “Automatic Link” is is a pretty neat little gadget. You plug it into your OBD 2 connector (under the dash on the driver’s side on most cars) and it transmits info from your car to your smartphone.

If a warning light pops on, it can tell you why and possibly a quick fix to resolve the issue or reset the light.

It also keeps track of your car via your phone’s GPS function so you never forget where you parked.

It has tons of other features and is only $99.
