I got frustrated trying to set mine up as it wouldn't pair with the Bluetooth in my Toyota Camry. The support site lists a few years of Camry that don't work and I assume this is due to specific customer complaints. My car doesn't have an audio in jack, so I started looking into a USB powered BT speaker to put in the car... As I started testing that in my house and had some issues, but found out that my Samsung S10 phone can act as a BT speaker for the Echo Auto! That surprised me as I have always used my phone as a BT transmitter to a BT speaker. Anyway, I now can use my phone as a speaker for Echo Auto, as it requires my phone anyway as its mobile connection and GPS. This gives me what I'll always wanted... a hands-free Alexa app on my phone I can have routines "speak" using "This mobile device" and Reminders speak using "Alexa on phone" Update... I recently found out that since my Samsung phone, which has always been able to Bluetooth connect to my Camry to play music and do phone calls, that this ability still works even when Echo Auto is connected to my phone as a wireless microphone. This means that I can be listening to music through my phone on the car audio system and still do Alexa functions, even Google Maps navigation, while music is playing Alexa/Google will only interrupt the music while it speaking, then the music continues... its really working great!! The next post is about another approach using a button Frank
