With this guide we will walk you through how to maintain your precious data you have been collecting with your Automatic Pro and continue to enjoy the features you just cannot live without.
What is AutoPi?
AutoPi.io is an install-it-yourself IoT device which securely connects vehicles to the internet and helps users gain data of their automotive usage to provide a cheaper, safer and smoother way of driving.
AutoPi delivers the majority of all the features you have been using with Automatic Pro and many more. Due to its open IoT platform, AutoPi also allows you to develop customized features and thereby enhance your vehicle performance through software only.
Another great argument is that AutoPi is fully transparent. Open Source Core means that users can actually gain full visibility into our code base and discussions about how features are developed. What you see is what you get and no strings attached.
