Garmin Speak lets you bring Alexa along in the vehicle

Garmin Speak puts Amazon Alexa in your car

Garmin have stated that the Speak is the first ever hands-free Alexa device made exclusively for your auto. Close in size to an Echo Dot, the Garmin Speak is a 1.5-inch device with an LED illuminated ring and OLED display that can display information like turn-by-turn directions.

"Alexa, play "Goin" Mobile' by The Who". The Garmin Speak can be controlled with voice commands to Alexa, allowing hands-free access to turn-by-turn Global Positioning System navigation from Garmin.

"Our vision is that the Alexa service will be everywhere our customers want it, including inside the auto". Alexa is also available for your home on the Amazon Echo devices, Amazon's answer to the Google Home, with new versions launched at the end of last month.

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

The NFLPA has since filed a motion to recall the order and allow it the opportunity to seek an appeal in Texas. Elliott played the first five games as Dallas went 2-3 in a disappointing start.

The Garmin Speak syncs with a smartphone app to deliver the connection to Alexa and connects to the vehicle's audio system via Bluetooth or AUX connectivity.

Users can ask Garmin Speak to find the nearest gas station, barbecue restaurant or other destination just by talking out loud, the company said. Garmin Speak can be wirelessly connected to a car's speakers over Bluetooth or through a regular wired 3.5mm cable if the auto is older.

The Speak is the first in-vehicle device to pair hands-free Alexa access with Garmin navigation software, but it's not the first partner to bring Amazon's voice service into the auto. Turn-by-turn navigation is packaged with the Speak and doesn't require a subscription.

The Garmin Speak is priced at $149.99 Dollars and is on sale now in the United States from Amazon or Best Buy.
