Shutting down service

Automatic is shutting down this platform. Too bad, but honestly since Google Maps integration started requiring a credit card (I'll never give Google my payment info even if it wouldn't be used), I haven't used the plugin. I did like the service outside of Indigo, so from that perspective it's bad news.

I never had to put my credit card in for the Google maps integration, but I hear ya.

I was saddened to get the email about Automatic being shut down. I'm looking for alternatives now, and I'm leaning strongly towards Bouncie.

Let us know how your investigation goes. Maybe there will be an opportunity to do the geofencing using a different source (if it's not built-in to the product itself). I suspect you were grandfathered in on the Google Maps thing. I attempted to get a key when I started the setup and it wouldn't let me through w/o a CC. It may have changed since then.
