Very cool. So you're having to turn on your wifi Hotspot on your phone everytime you're doing this right?
second generation model s?
in any case, I've been wanting to try this, but would want a more permanent internet solution. Shame we never got hotspot functionality in the car.
So cool! ATT won't let me tether to my iPhone (unlimited data plan)...
Too bad that Tesla doesn't give us decent voice command capabilities, instead forcing people to use workarounds like this one, using Siri etc. This is a cool workaround, though....
Correct. No big deal.
Ohh very cool. Been using several of the full size echo's around my house since they first came out a year and a half ago. When they announced the dot I was a little confused how that would help me at all but I think you just gave me a good example! Ordering a dot now.... crap... they're out of stock until June 29th Order pending though. Maybe I'll try with a full sized echo in the meantime... will just be clunkier.
I use an Echo in the kitchen but a Dot in the bedroom since the TV has a Bluetooth soundbar that has better sound than the Echo. Also, the small size us nice.
Very cool. I can see all sorts of possibilities. Do you need to manually connect the hotspot or will it pick it up automatically when you get in the car?
Well I wanted to try this too but even after rebooting my console numerous times I can't find it with the Bluetooth.
Nice. I have a regular Echo in the family room and the Dot in the bedroom. I can see the advantage of using it for reading kindle books on long trips. You can listen to books just using your iPhone but it either costs more or you must use VoiceOver.
For those unaware, the Echo offers natural reading for many Kindle books at no additional cost.
Love it! My Echo is my favorite tech toy
I wrote a little sample app that demonstrates how to control the Tesla via the Echo (or Dot) by having the car look like a WeMo switch . It's including in the tesla_wemo example on GitHub - hjespers/teslams
I run the app on a Raspberry Pi in my home so I can say things like "Alexa, turn my tesla charger/climate on"
