isn't that part of the Start My Day routine?  What's in that one's definition, since it's the default from Amazon?

Locations are available to all as I'm led to believe. It's about making sure that you have your address in your Alexa app and that will be used for weather, nearest restaurants etc....... mine works in the UK and is accurate.

As said above, all these sorts of gadgets are small radio transmitters and receivers that emit harmless rf energy that have to pass strict government standards.  Do you really think Amazon. Google, Apple and countless other companies would market harmful rf gadgets?  If so, you need to get better educated. 

But if a local radio or TV station wanted to erect a powerful transmitting antenna in the vacant lot next to your house, THAT would be a concern  Fortunately, the law would not allow it.

Yes, it does emit radiation. But if you put a tin foil hat on your children, they'll be protected.

Weird Al Yankovic was worried about it too, so he wore this tin foil hat.

I have a routine that will perform certain actions when I say "Good morning"".

News , weather , calendar etc.
However, how can I get Alexa to read my reminders for the day?
Echo Technical Support / Re: Connect Dot to Denon AVR-S510BT
« Last post by santley88 on February 18, 2019, 07:41:47 pm »
I know that this is kind of an old topic but I just found it.  I have a Denon AVR-S700.  My problem is that I have to go through the entire pairing process each time I want to stream through my Echo Dot (2nd Gen) via bluetooth.  Once I get it paired again, everything is fine, but when I stop, turn everything off and come back later, even though I am instructed to "connect my speaker", the Denon doesn't see it.  If I go to options and try to pair it again from the Denon side, no joy.  I literally have to delete/forget/hulk smash everything and start over again....  Arghhhhh
