Drive Smarter uses Bluetooth to automatically manage connection types depending on which feature you are using within the app. If you are using a feature that requires Wi-Fi, the app will walk you through establishing a a Bluetooth connection.

The SC 400D uses its specially tuned microphones to invoke Alexa from the background of your phone and automatically reconnect when you enter your car. The phone is still the main source of audio for Alexa, enabling you to hear the replies through your car’s speakers.• Check that Bluetooth is enabled on your phone.• If you see a red bar on the camera, press the Alexa mute/unmute button on the bottom of the unit next to the power button.
