Ok yeah, there's a bit of a delay for a command to be heard from the Echo, transmitted through Bluetooth to the Alexa app on my phone, then transmitted through Bluetooth back out from the phone to the FM transmitter, and then to the radio, maybe half a second. It's very liveable, and you can still use Google Assistant for everything else, including Google Maps. I like it. see less I've connected the Echo Auto to my phone via Bluetooth, and am using this transmitter Check out this item at Target https://www.target.com/p/just-wireless-2-port-usb-car-charger-wireless-fm-transmitter-silver-black/-/A-51571809 to connect it to my 2002 Honda Accord.

Answer:
If it is sitting idle, it will not use data, but if it is answering questions, giving turn-by-turn directions, or playing music/audio-book... yes, it will be using data... If you have an unlimited data plan, you will be fine... if you have limited data (pay for blocks, etc.) you will find yourself burning through data… see more If it is sitting idle, it will not use data, but if it is answering questions, giving turn-by-turn directions, or playing music/audio-book... yes, it will be using data... If you have an unlimited data plan, you will be fine... if you have limited data (pay for blocks, etc.) you will find yourself burning through data faster than normal. If you just want to use Echo Auto for music, I would suggest burning a CD or memory-stick... or plugging in an MP3 player for your music on the road, if you want to conserve data on your phone. see less If it is sitting idle, it will not use data, but if it is answering questions, giving turn-by-turn directions, or playing music/audio-book... yes, it will be using data...

Answer:
For me, the Echo Auto startup was quick. The problem is that it is basically a mic for your phone's Alexa App. My phone takes longer to connect to my car using Bluetooth than the Echo Auto takes to start. The real problem is that any message or call interrupts what's playing on Echo Auto thru the Alexa App.

Answer:
If you can play music in your car through Bluetooth, Echo auto can connect and play through it.

Answer:
I requested an invitation I believe in September of 2018 and then forgot about it until July of 2019. Ordered it right away and received it. I like it. I don't love it.

Answer:
The answer that Eric Hammond danced around is no. This device doesn't create a wifi access point in your car which it should have. They missed a good opportunity here since it is using your phones data for the device, it should have had that wifi feature built in.
