Garmin Speak adds Amazon Alexa to your auto for $149

The company on Tuesday launched Garmin Speak, a $149.99 Global Positioning System navigation device for your vehicle that offers hands-free access to Alexa. Alexa can easily search music by artist, title, or genre. 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). The 1.5-inch device features an OLED display which shows turn-by-turn notification with an LED light ring all around it.

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

Local gas prices drop another 9.3 cents per gallon
Patrick DeHaan, the head petroleum analyst for GasBuddy, said nationally, gasoline prices dipped for the fifth straight week. According to GasBuddy, the average fill-up in Naples was $2.53 per gallon Monday, down five cents from last week.

"The interaction between the two technologies offers drivers a truly unique opportunity to turn their words into actions while keeping both hands on the wheel", said Garmin's Dan Bartel.

Ned Curic, Amazon Alexa's automotive VP, said, "Our vision is that the Alexa service will be everywhere our customers want it, including inside the vehicle". Customers can also enable interactive games to entertain passengers on longer trips. The Speak actually integrates Alexa through the car's stereo so you won't be limited to a tiny speaker if you ask Alexa to play music, audiobooks, read you the news, and more. Simply speaking, anything Alexa can do for you at home, it can do for you on the move, though take note that it has to use your mobile data to work.

To begin using Garmin Speak with Amazon Alexa, start by downloading the free Garmin Speak app. Garmin Speak is available now for $150. For example, the Logitech Zerotouch hands-free vehicle mount offers Alexa's services for $24.99. The device is available now via Best Buy and Amazon for $149.99 United States dollars.
