Sponsor: Automatic

Once again, my huge thanks to Automatic for sponsoring Six Colors this week (and for most of June).

Automatic is a small “connected car adapter” that you plug into your car’s diagnostic port. (Automatic works with most gas and hybrid cars released since 1996.) We took a long car trip this week, and my wife and I enjoyed looking through the Automatic data on our trip, the stops, the cost of the gasoline we used on the trip, and even information about when we used our brakes a bit too hard or drove a bit too fast.

Automatic does a bunch more, too, including integrating with other smart devices. Automatic normally costs $99.95, but readers of Six Colors get 20 percent off. Automatic ships in two business days for free, and there’s a 45-day return policy.
