Features :

  1. Connects to Alexa using your phone, is ready in seconds, and plays through your car speakers. Includes Echo Auto Dash Mount.
  2. With eight microphones and far-field technology, Echo Auto can hear you over music, A/C, and road noise.
  3. Use your voice to play music, check the news, open the garage door, find the nearest gas station, and more.
  4. Play Audible books, stream podcasts, or listen to Amazon Music, Apple Music (coming soon), Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM, or NPR.
  5. Make calls, set reminders, add items to your shopping and to-do lists, or manage your calendar.
  6. With over 50,000 skills and counting, Alexa is always getting smarter. Skills are like apps and let you do more with Alexa.
  7. Set location-based routines—automated actions Alexa can start when you leave the office or get home.
  8. Ask for directions and Alexa connects to supported apps like Google Maps, Apple Maps, or Waze on your phone.

It is an interesting device, 
You can register for early bird offer. 

I thought of installing my Eco Dot in the car,

But after looking at this device, I will wait and decide.

This is the best part,
You can write your own skill set.

 

This is very good opportunity for IT developers who love cars.

EcoDot in car doesn't make sense. 

It may not handle the road noise etc.

On other hand EcoAuto has 8 micro phones and it can handle noise very well.

 

My car is almost 8 years old.

I'm getting bored of it.
Small devices like this make the car interesting again.

You can find many car DIY guys installed Eco dot in their cars. 

It is fine, but may not be an ideal device.

More details in this video. 

Added advantage for cars with only Aux support (no usb and bluetooth)

A device from Google will be much more user friendly.
I am using Eco dot, it is just average. No where close to Google.
