    AutoMate - Car Dashboard's review

    Published: 2016-01-15, by .

    A convenient way to safely get things done while you drive

    • Unique idea
    • Well-designed user interface
    • Hands-free replying
    • Twitchy alerts
    • No zoom function
    • Missing the best parts

    "Freedom Through Hands Free"


    AutoMate looks to bring the form and functionality needed for your ride. Rather than have to use your hands, let AutoMate bring commonly used services to you, through the power of voice. With a number of voice-activated functions, your ride will be smooth and safe.


    It's a unique concept with plenty of potential. The user interface is designed well with easily navigable menus and clear options and buttons. Hands free replying is very useful for the chatty driver. It loads up quickly and seems to perform well.


    The camera alerts seem to be a little twitchy, going off when they shouldn't. The street names on the map should be a bit larger and easier to read. Add zoom to the map to fix this. Some of the best features are locked up in the premium version.

    This app has SO MUCH potential!! It works fine for the most part...but it's MADDENING how inconsistent it is! I have it set so that when I plug the headphone jack in, the app launches and starts Pandora, then when I disconnect the headphone jack, the app is supposed to close. What ACTUALLY happens? Anyone's guess. The app usually starts, but Pandora? Maybe, maybe not. When I unplug the headphone jack? Who KNOWS what will happen. lol If this app was consistent, it'd be a 6/5-star app!! I love it!! Will update this review if things change!!

    Best app of this type on the play store. No other app can be customized like automate. In the future I would like to have themes/color schemes available. Great work guys.

    I love the interface, but hate that it has its own maps instance. Google Maps is far superior and I often want to set a route first, but automate doesn't then pick up the history.

    Bought premium - works brilliantly with 2016 VW Passat with S7 Edge on wireless Samsung charger below AC controls. Just place it there and auto starts and stops on car's bt connection

    It is really cool, works fine, it's fluid, it looks nice and perfectly integrates with the music app on my phone, if it supported mirrorlink it'd be amazing, it's just lacking mirrorlink, that's it, almost perfect
