Garmin Speak adds Amazon Alexa to your auto for $149

Garmin Speak brings Amazon Alexa and GPS navigation to any vehicle

Garmin have stated that the Speak is the first ever hands-free Alexa device made exclusively for your vehicle.

The Garmin Speak is a small, 1.5-inch circular device with an LED illuminated ring that looks a lot like a nano-scale Echo Dot, which it sort of is.

"Our vision is that the Alexa service will be everywhere our customers want it, including inside the auto", said Ned Curic, vice president of automotive at Amazon Alexa. Alexa is also found in some third-party gear, the newest of which is a hands-free, turn-by-turn navigation product from Garmin called "Garmin Speak with Amazon Alexa" (just Garmin Speak from here on out).

Well, now Alexa is making its way into cars too.

Later, Trump backtracked on the claim slightly, saying "I was told that he didn't often". "But I like the combination of-when I can-the combination of a call and also a letter".

The $149.99 Garmin Speak is the equivalent of an Echo Dot for the vehicle.

The Garmin Speak with Amazon Alexa uses a data connection from a paired smartphone running the free Garmin Speak app, and can be ordered through Amazon or Best Buy for $149.99. Just say, "Alexa, ask Garmin to route me to the nearest gas station", "Alexa, ask Garmin to find brunch" or "Alexa, ask Garmin for directions home". Alexa responses, including calling up content such as music, news and traffic alerts, stream through the vehicle's stereo.

Garmin Speak is available now for $150 here.

Turn words into actions with Garmin Speak voice service, your always-ready driving companion. Garmin - a brand known for its Global Positioning System fitness watches - has unveiled a new smart device which is said to be the first in-car gadget to offer drivers hands-free access to Alexa, as well as provide navigation through Garmin's own tech.
