Amazon offers the Automatic Smart Driving Assistant for $79.99 shipped, which is a match for the best price we have ever for this appcessory. As a automatic-smart-driving-assistant-2further pricing comparison, both Best Buy and Apple are charging full list ($99.99) for it.

Automatic plugs into your vehicle’s (1996 or newer) diagnostic port and transmits valuable information to your iPhone or Android smartphone that can help improve driving habits and save on fuel. Furthermore, it can remind you where you parked, diagnose and clear your check engine light, and find a nearby mechanic. Crash Alert (iPhone only right now) can help you get help and notify family members if you get into a serious accident.

We reviewed Automatic and found it to be a great product even at its retail price of $100:

While Automatic can’t make you be a better driver, it can certainly help you along the way if you’re willing to take a little coaching. The accessory gives you a subtle beep when you break or accelerate too fast or break 70 mph. Take your weekly score into account, notice what behaviors you repeat, and most importantly aim for fewer beeps and you’re bound to improve… if you’re willing.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 stars from 193 Amazon reviewers.
