Alexa and Garmin GPS is triggered by galaxy s5 in Toyota Prius, i

I am successfully using Alex in the Toyota Prius! My Samsung Galaxy s5 selects 1 of 4 icons to begin a tailored boot sequence, go home, go shopping, go to work, run an errand. It boots up the headsup display then speaks to Alexa and to my GPS so i get my tailored news briefs. For instance, Alexa does the news brief in the morning. Going home Alexa plays all things considered! These nfc icons trigger use cases.

Just got a new idea not tested. I could take the galaxy s5 and bluetooth link it to echo. Then voice commands wont have to travel 3ft in the car from a bluetooth speaker to echo, instead the echo speaks the command from its own speaker then takes action itself!! Very interesting and i will have to try this out. This eliminates false recognition that 1 time out of 10 just happens, the rest of the time it works.

The echo is mounted to a 4 hook rack behind the head rest. The rack is for my cane.

Hi Eddy, Would you mind posting a video of this in action? I'm very curious to see how it all works.
