We want you to know
Echo Auto connects to Alexa through the Alexa app on your phone and uses your existing smartphone data plan. Carrier charges may apply. Check if your vehicle’s air vents are compatible with the included mount.
Will this connect to my car?
Echo Auto connects to most cars that support Bluetooth to play music or have an auxiliary input. Check if your vehicle is compatible with Echo Auto via Bluetooth.
I was given a beta test tryout of Alexa Auto last year and utilized it on several long car trips. My 2013 Honda does not connect directly via Bluetooth to the Echo Auto; instead, we secure the echo with a cable through the auxiliary portal. My smartphone is the Bluetooth connection conduit for Alexa and my Bluetooth port, adding data usage on long car trips. One important caveat: Best to utilize a home wireless network during the initial setup steps. This initial setup at home will save you countless hours/headaches when remotely establishing the initial setup. The initial setup process is quick and easy with following instructions via your automobile Bluetooth system. My recommendation applies to the very first time you set up Alexa auto in your car.

Taking Amazon’s $50 Echo Auto for a test drive
Is Alexa a helpful car companion? We give this $50 gadget a full review to see what Alexa can do on the go. We even take the Echo Auto for a ride in a fancy car. It should be able to hear over-road noise. The question is, how much road noise can it handle? Note: We bleeped out the “Alexa’s” in the video to avoid activating your smart speakers at home.
Detailed Test Results
The Sonos Move has overall very good sound quality. Bass has a good impact and goes deep. The midrange is even but is a bit hazy and grainy. Treble is extended but a bit subdued, dry and lean. Is a so-so job of recovering room ambiance and a bit of fine detail and complexity lacking? There is no significant difference between Wifi and Bluetooth sound quality. Provides a decent volume level in a small to medium-sized room. When combined with a second unit to form a stereo pair, they can be placed to provide better stereo separation than many other models overall score improves, remaining very good.
Versatility is very good. It’s a monophonic speaker, with multi-room support with other Sonos speakers but not with other Amazon Echo speakers, although it’s added to the Amazon Echo App. Supports stereo pairing with another Sonos Move. Wireless: WiFi supports dual-Band, and it has Bluetooth. Communications: Amazon Alexa – Lacks support for calling, texting, and messaging features native to Alexa in Amazon Echo products; Google Assistant – Has support for calling and messaging but lacks it for texting on this unit. Digital Assistant Muting: Has a dedicated touch control to disable the digital assistant by muting its microphones. Audio Connections: Lacks analog audio inputs and outputs. Audio Tailoring: Has auto-calibration and treble and bass controls. OS Support: Android, iOS, and others. Other connections and features: Lacks USB port. Streaming by voice command: Supports voice command of many common streaming services such as Amazon Music, Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify, Tune-In, and iHeart Radio. Voice ID: Lacks support to set up voice identity using this speaker, although it can use a voice print stored in a user’s Amazon account trained from an Amazon speaker. This feature allows the account holder to access personal information with their “voice print.”
Ease of Use
Overall ease of use of the Sonos Move is very good. Wireless setup: Setup requires an app downloaded to a device or device connection, easy and intuitive – need instructions (may be included in-app), may or may not involve inputting WiFi network password, and account setups. Console controls: Volume controls are prominent but, unlike earlier Sonos models, ambiguously labeled, making it unclear as to their function. Lacks graphical position marking or index of level. It has an audible tone that adjusts with level selection. Volume may also be controlled via a natural language command. Audio mute: Unlabeled – well placed – with indication when it is engaged. Microphone mute: Well marked, well placed, clear indication when engaged. Source selections: Requires app to be installed; app installation is straightforward. Once the app is installed, switching between inputs is fairly intuitive. App remote: Volume controls are prominent and have graphical position marking but lack specific index markings. Mute: (Remote) Well marked, well placed, clear indication when it is engaging and mutes the line input. Voice transport controls Natural language control of transport (Play/Pause/Skip/Mute), volume controls, and source selection was easy and intuitive.
