How does Auto Echo work?

Echo Auto comes with a micro USB mount and cable, making it simple to install on the dash and plug into the car’s power source. Echo Auto is portable and can be moved between multiple vehicles.

To hear Alexa from the car speakers, connect it via Bluetooth or cable. If your vehicle does not have both Bluetooth and an auxiliary port, you may be able to connect Echo Auto to the speakers using a cassette adapter or FM transmitter.

Online connectivity and device data comes from your smartphone, so make sure it’s capable of running the Alexa app.
