I bought ECHO-AUTO from Amazon” a couple of days ago. Installation was easy – just download the app and follow the instructions. Pairing with my phone an iPhone 6S+ was fast and the install app very user-friendly.
The first thing I tried was music. I’ve been fairly unhappy with Slacker, it’s catalog of songs, and it’s low quality. SO, the first thing I did was Say “Alexa: Play Pandora Dinner Music”. Alexa immediately responded and started the Pandora Jazz station. It was great! Even with my terrible hearing, (too much skeet shooting without ear protection), I could hear the difference.
The Echo-Auto is small in size and comes with a clip which should fit into the rear air vents. I won’t use that but will, most likely, double stick tape or Velcro it to the side of the console. With Alexa available the full repertoire of Echo commands are available. The Micro USB cable plugs right into one of the rear USB power ports. If I attach the unit to the side of the console, I probably get a shorter USB cord.
