Garmin Unveils Alexa-Powered GPS Device

The Garmin Speak is going to sit on the car's dash and provide access to Alexa. It's a tiny little thing, measuring just around an inch-a-half with a LED light ring and an OLED display that shows turn-by-turn directions.

"Alexa, play "Goin" Mobile' by The Who".

"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.

Well, now Alexa is making its way into cars too. Now Garmin is taking Alexa for a ride, incorporating the digital assistant in a teeny in-vehicle navigation device.

Trump walked back the claim when a reporter asked him about it. "This President, like his predecessors, has done each of these. Lobbing paper towels at people may have been a presidential first , but the trip itself was routine.

Users can ask Garmin Speak to find the nearest gas station, barbecue restaurant or other destination just by talking out loud, the company said. The Speak unit will then use the smartphone data connection to stream Alexa responses, tunes and navigation prompts through the car's audio system over Bluetooth or aux cable. Garmin Speak is billed as the first in-vehicle device for hands-free access to the Amazon Alexa voice service and Global Positioning System navigation. Garmin's Speak can also be used for hands-free calling thanks to Sensory's TrulyHandsfree Alexa trigger.

The Garmin Speak gives drivers access to Alexa's voice skills that include voice interaction, music playback, making to-do lists, weather, and more.

Turn words into actions with Garmin Speak voice service, your always-ready driving companion. However, Garmin's solution is interesting because it allows the driver to put away their phone and use its low-distraction hardware. The device is available now via Best Buy and Amazon for $149.99 United States dollars.
