Now, app that takes care of your car problems
Melbourne: A new device and app has been developed that will keep check on a car’s engine, fuel economy, driving habits and parking location.

The new app and tiny device called Automatic Link, which will hit the US market in May for about 70 dollars, will analyse the car’s problems and feed the information to their smartphone, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The tiny device plugs into the car’s onboard diagnostics (OBD) port and sends the information to the iPhone via Bluetooth.

It also analyses fuel use and the car owner’s driving style - and will give a weekly score based on their efficiency and safety, with a few hints about how to improve.

Using GPS, it can detect fuel prices at nearby service stations and can remember where the owner has parked the car and with a built-in accelerometer, the app can also sense if the owner had an accident, alert emergency services – and your next-of-kin -- and lead them to your location.
