AutoBot app Can Tack your Car if it Leaves Without You

AutoBot has the potention to be a great iPhone and Android App. Working in concert with a Bluetooth OBD-II dongle, it lets you diagnose engine troubles, keep track of maintenance, and locate your car via GPS coordinates -- useful for when some the bad guys try to make off with your ride or when you're simply can't remember where you parked. It can even be configured to automatically send a text to loved ones should you get into an accident, specifying your GPS coordinates and ruining any hope of hitting the body shop before dad finds out. The Mavizon-developed app recently won a startup competition at i-Stage 2010 and sadly isn't slated to be available until 2012. When it does ship it'll cost $300 for the hardware and the software, though an extra fee will be required if you want to banish pop-up ads back to Cybertron.
