The connected car service, now owned by SiriusXM, is blaming the coronavirus outbreak for the shut down.
Just like many other companies in the United States, the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted our business. With fewer consumers purchasing and leasing vehicles and drivers on the road, we unfortunately do not see a path forward for our business. These are unprecedented times, and with so much uncertainty ahead, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Automatic connected car product, service and platform. We will be shutting down all operations at 11:59 pm, PT, on May 28, 2020 and, as a result, your service will end on that time.
Customers are being told to discard their adapters by following standard electronics recycling procedures.
You may be eligible for a rebate for your Automatic purchase due to the discontinuation of the service. Minimum requirements for all eligible customers include:
● Purchase of Automatic Pro or Lite that has been activated prior to April 30, 2020 or,Purchase of Automatic Connected Car Assistant (CCA) whether activated or not and,
● The ability to verify your Automatic account information including your adapter PIN and email address associated with your account and,
● Completion of the Rebate Request Form by June 15, 2020.
