I have an Amazon Dot installed in my car and Wi-Fi tethered to my Android phone (the latest revision of software allow tethering) and Bluetooth to my stereo.  I understand I can's start my car since the Automatic is not powered up until I start the car, but can the skill be updated to control the car features; wiper, headlights, etc. ?  I also have several ASUS smartwatches.  Can the Automatic alerts be configured as notifications, this way they would appear on my watch and vibrate it?  With the stereo playing and road noise, I may not hear the alerts.

Hey, Dan. Welcome to the community! Unfortunately, no, the OBD-II interface does not allow for Automatic to "control" car features such as wipers, headlights, etc. The adapter is designed to be read-only and to not write commands, with the exception of clearing Check Engine Lights. As for the Audio Feedback alerts, the alerts come from the adapter itself. I hope this help! :)
