Let's face it: We can't all buy new cars with the hot new tech. A Tesla just isn't for everyone. But we can do a few things to make our older, dumber cars just a little bit smarter. And for that, I'd been eyeing one of those little dongle adapter things from Automatic.

Automatic Pro is the big brother. It's $129, but for that one-time expense you get data that uploads automatically over 3G (for the five-year lifetime of the device). It's simultaneously a game-changer and not necessarily that big a deal. It sort of depends on what you need it for.

If you drive for business, this little thing can be a BIG deal. If you just want to make your car a little smarter? Well, it does that, too. It might not change your life, but it might just change your drive.
