Got an invitation this morning to purchase Echo Auto with 50% discount. I checked Amazon messages probably less than 6 times a year; so just reminding people whom requested to purchase a while back and possibly forgot. I did!

It's stupid. They make you wait a year, and then you don't promptly reply back, and they make you lose your spot.

It's not even very good. I signed up and got the invite within a month. But the damn thing freezes all the time and can't hear you with windows down. And there isn't even full Alexa capabilities. No gps, either.

Hence I made this thread. I rarely check my inbox messages and would have missed this. The timeline to make the purchase is 7 days from when they sent out your invitation. Easily missed for those like me.

It took 11 months for my turn so I completely forgot about this. Hopefully less buggy now.

This depends on a phone to do anything, so why would you expect it to have GPS capabilities?.

I spent an hour and a half on the phone trying to get the thing set up today,, it's definitely not ready for prime time. Major connectivity issues. Amazon basically told me I should be happy that I got the invite and paid "half price" for it. I didn't sign up for a beta test. Reviews are disabled on Amazon. Very frustrating.

If you are even considering wasting $25 to buy this device, do yourself a favor and search "echo auto connection issues" in Amazonforums.com to see how many people are having problems with this device. There's a reason Amazon doesn't allow product reviews on the site -- it is the buggiest electronic device I have ever owned.

Please check your email for the special code mailed by amazon for echo auto.
That code reduces the price of echo auto by 50%

This might be a targeted promotion.

Have used this as a trial unit.Did not find it useful apart from using it as a bluetooth to aux adapter.And even that started giving issues after a while.Took it out and its lying unused.
