Alexa can help
With Alexa, you can use your voice to engage navigation, pick your favorite tunes, answer calls, check the weather, and activate compatible smart home devices — all without taking your hands off the wheel or eyes off the road. The Alexa app provides a driver-friendly display on your phone; simply connect your phone to your car stereo using Bluetooth® to hear Alexa's feedback over your speakers. There's also a mute button to disengage the mount's microphones for more privacy.
Plug in, mount, and charge
Use the included USB-C cable and charger to plug into your vehicle's 12-volt power port to get some juice to the charger's base. You can tilt and rotate the mount for portrait or landscape positions for optimum viewing — great for navigation apps. This charger's base includes an adhesive mount that works on your dash or on your windshield. Even when your vehicle's engine is off, simply touch one of the rear-mounted buttons to release your phone.

More details on the iOttie Aivo Connect™
Overview: The iOttie Aivo Connect™ is an automatic wireless charging car mount with Alexa built-in. The mount attaches to your dashboard or windshield and holds your phone securely while wirelessly charging it. Aivo Connect comes with a car charger and two adhesive-backed mounting bases.
Mounting: The primary mounting location should be on your dashboard for best performance and viewing angle. The adhesive twist-locking base securely holds the mount, even in bumpy conditions. If your dashboard is leather or curved, you can mount the base to your windshield. Once you have locked the Aivo Connect into the base, you can tilt the phone cradle to one of the five positions for best viewing. The cradle also rotates 90° counter-clockwise to switch from portrait (vertical) to landscape (horizontal) orientation.
Note: Please follow your locality's recommendations and regulations regarding mounting devices to your windshield.
Auto Sense™: Aivo Connect features Auto Sense™ that automatically opens and closes the side arms via a silent step motor to hold and release your phone. An Infrared Proximity sensor in the center of the charging pad detects when your phone is in range, and automatically clamps onto your phone in a smooth, fluid motion. To release your device, you can press one of the two buttons on the back of the cradle to open the arms. The Aivo Connect's side arms have non-slip soft rubber pads to gently cradle and secure your phone, and protect it from scratches.
Alexa Built-in: With Alexa built-in, you can control your phone hands-free while driving safely. Alexa lets you use voice commands to get directions to your destination, listen to an audiobook, play your favorite music, or make a phone call. To activate Alexa, simply press the Invoke Alexa button on the base. Alexa's signature blue LED ring around the base indicates interaction. Dual microphones in the front and one in the back can pick up your voice, even with road noise or with music or the air conditioning on. A mute button on the base lets you turn off the microphones at any time to protect your privacy. When used with an aux input or your phone's Bluetooth connection, Alexa plays through your car speakers. With Aivo Connect, you can access over 100,000 Alexa skills. You can group together multiple skills into a routine.
Wireless Charging: The Qi-Certified Aivo Connect keeps your smartphone charged when in the mount. It has been tested by the Wireless Power Consortium for safety, effectiveness, and compatibility. Aivo Connect charges your phone via induction through wire coils embedded in the charging pad and the back of your Qi-compatible smartphone. The Qi Receiver Coil is generally located in the center area of the phone, so you must properly position the device over the charging pad. Aivo Connect provides 10W or 7.5W Fast Charging to your smartphone. The charging pad also features Foreign Object Detection to safely block wireless charging when an object gets between the pad and your phone.
