Automatic Closing Down

Received an email. Stinks. I liked this service

Like many other companies in the United States, the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted our business, and we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Automatic connected car product, service, and platform. This decision to cease operations affects all Automatic services, including our automatic crash notification service. We will be shutting down all operations at 11:59 pm, PT, on May 28, 2020 and, as a result, your Automatic service will end on that time.

Well that stinks. I liked thier stuff. Made expense reporting wonderfully easy. That said, I wondered how the business model (buy once, use long term, no subscription) was viable.

Anyone researched any alternatives?

I got the email today. I liked this product. I also wonder how much the virus really had to do with the closure.

I would also be interested in alternatives.


Yeap i really liked them … made tracking easier but i guess no more.
It sucks cause i got the adapter a long time ago and just last year started using it :frowning:
