When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Echo Show 5 and Getting Directions
« on: July 17, 2019, 10:24:04 pm »
Just received my new Echo Show 5. I asked Alexa for simple directions to main intersections or  attractions like the Eaton Centre but Alexa keeps giving me a traffic condition rating instead of directions. It won't display a map.

You need to use the Skype skill. Use the Alexa app and set up the Skype skill on your Echo device and link your account.

Thanks. I figured out the Skype issue but now can't get Alexa to give directions.
