    It’s kind of a waste with having if you use android auto or CarPlay. But even in a truck without either one you can still say hey Siri play songs by..... and it will work. I have a 4th gen Apple TV installed for video streaming.

    I use Android Auto and it’s all voice activated too and I like Google better than my Alexa I think.

    In my opinion Alexa blows Siri away and I've only used it for a few days but owned an iPhone since the 4. Not sure I would put one in the car since I'm not into spending the extra money for the wifi.

    One day our kids, kids, grandkids will only see a car with a steering wheel in a museum. Probably our smartphones too, they'll be saying stuff like - can you believe our ancestors carried a little device in their pocket and had access to everything, how archaic. Lol

    Heh, I gotta share this:
    I bought a 1989 Chevy Truck (4x4, 5 speed, 350). It was a rough ranch truck that I've been slowly fixing up. Still in the dirty rust stage, but at least the drive train is good and a good solid suspension.
    I picked up my daughter from school with it one day. She was 14 and high functioning special needs. It was still nice temp outside here in Texas, so I asked her if she wanted the window down. She noted, "yeah", but couldn't figure it out. So, I "cranked" down the window.
    She was elated and thought that was the coolest thing she had ever seen. "Cranking Down" the window.
    Because of the window crank, she still loves that truck.

    I love gadgets.... My Yukon has all.. Will give this a try... My 2017 glc Mercedes also can be started by voice command using Alexa.. So I'm defiantly gonna try in there also...I have Echo.. But I also have Samsung smart things at home... Alexa can start my car then the garage will automatically open once car start... If you have Sony TV's she can change Ur channels and pause and mute

    One song says it all. I miss the days of not being tied to a cell phone. Everybody seemed a lot happier then, I know I was.

    On the weekends, I frequently drive off and leave the phone at home.

    Very liberating.
