Get access to all your music, get it to play by your voice commands, get reminders on appointments and all the other features an Amazon Echo can offer.

One side benefit is that the amazon Echo actually fits flush inside most car cupholders! Did you know that?

we recommend you get the echo dot which is the smallest version.

Now, if you have bluetooth already, it will pair automatically by the time you have your seat belt is fastened and the car turned on. If you do not have bluetooth, and have an aux jack, you will need a 3.5 to 3.5 cable

Something like below:

You will also need an DC to AC adapter for your car, if you do not have an AC jack in the car already. We recommend a simple one that works through the cigarette lighter plug.

OBD GPS TRACKERS for cars / kids / security

Most cars after the year 1994 have an OBD port. The obd port looks like the picture below

This port is located somewhere under your drivers dash, lay on the floor and look up. In some cars, it may be behind a panel, but almost all cars will have this port. From this port, information such as fuel, mileage, and other information comes out via data. Most importantly, it has power and ground. So from this port, you can PLUG IN A SELF CONTAINED device and have GPS in less than FIVE SECONDS.

Do you have a new teen driver in your family, do you want to track your car for security or other reasons? Most people will not know to check the OBD port for a device, you after you plug an OBD GPS tracker in your car, no one will usually know but you!

Track where your kids are, when they drive and if they are going too fast. See where your wife is and if she is stuck in traffic. If your car gets stolen, call the police with the exact location.

Below are some devices we recommend after going through a few products.

We recommend the VYNCS because it includes the DEVICE –AND– the monthly subscription in the price. No extra fees for one year! And renewal is the same price as of this writing. All devices have 3G cell service, so there will be NO FREE GPS tracking device on the market. Be advised of that.

See the VYNCS here for the device and INCLUDED service

The motosafety GPS OBD tracker lets you know when your car needs service. It also has driving reports and much more

An more upgraded unit is the MASTRACK which has a BATTERY BACKUP!

Contains an internal backup battery that automatically charges while connected to the vehicle. Track this device even if it is unplugged
Unlimited email and text message alerts for tampering, speeding, geofence, etc.
Real-time GPS updates up to every 1 minute. Nationwide coverage (USA & Canada). Required monthly subscription as low as $10.99
No installation. Simply plugs into OBD-II port available on every vehicle manufactured since 1996. 1 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty
Use any internet enabled device. No software required. Android and iOS app available

If you want an unit which you can hide away, check out the SCOUT. This will have a built in battery for 24 hours, anything longer and it will need to be recharged or connected to a wire for charging.

This is a low cost investment, and your insurance company may offer you a discount (ask them!)
