I have two Automatic Pro devices. Thus, each has its own account with Automatic.

Is there a way to link the two so I can see both cars in a single dashboard?

Is it then possible to link the two accounts to Amazon Echo/Alexa, so I can find out where both cars are?

Hi, Dave. Yes, you'd just set them both up with the same user account. After you've set up the first car, add the 2nd car to your account by selecting "ADD A VEHICLE" from the main menu. You can only connect one user account with Alexa but it does support multiple cars on that account.

As a future feature request, it would be nice if the Alexa skill would respond to specific queries to individual cars.  i.e. "Alexa, ask automatic where is my Prius?"  It's frustrating to have to listen to a complete report on each vehicle when I only care about the one not sitting in my driveway.

Having written Alexa skills I know that words would need added for every make/model and this would be a pain, but it's not out of the realm of possibility. :-)

Just a suggestion - I do love the app!  Keep up the good work.

Thanks, Mark! I'm going to fork this into its own post so it can be categorized as an "Idea" and tracked. As a reply in here it will get lost. :)
