You connect it to your account and control your home automation from the car
Did you buy it from Amazon as there are offers on their devices for today only.

Yes, I saw that.

Bought a Fire Stick at half price, and a refurbed 28" TV (LG 28TL510V from RicherSounds via Amazon) for our bedroom (current one is over 12 years old, 19" with a built in DVD player).

TV was £129, Fire Stick £19.99 = 28" smart(ish) HD (720p) TV instead of a 19" SD TV for under £150 - result.

I paid £40 on Amazon.

The only bug is it doesn't play music on the phone and connects to the cars stereo, so you can only stream music.

I will try and disconnect the phone from the car and this will force Echo to use phones speaker.

I would of recommended the 4K stick for £40 it has a better processor than the other, even if using with a non 4K TV the difference is night and day.

I have one already in one of the other bedrooms, so I’ll be using that one, and the new one can go into that TV for occasional use by people who stop over (when we can again).

Re: What have you just bought?

Technically I bought it a couple of weeks ago...

A used Ubiquiti AP-AC LR access point from eBay to fix my WiFi.

It's made a world of a difference compared to using the Virgin SuperHub along with a TP-Link Access Point.

I get the impression this enterprise-grade gear is so much better and more reliable than the consumer crap most people use for home WiFi. I'd recommend it if you don't mind getting your hands slightly more dirty than you would setting up most consumer WiFi gear.
