Garmin launches vehicle navigation device with Amazon Alexa

Garmin Speak puts Amazon Alexa in your car

You can ask Alexa to search music by artist, title, or genre. From its perch above your car's dashboard, Speak allows drivers to access Amazon Alexa voice skills with the hands-free "Alexa..." keyword. 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. Turn-by-turn navigation is packaged with the Speak and doesn't require a subscription. Ask Speak for directions with your voice; simply say "Alexa, ask Garmin to take me to the nearest gas station", for instance. "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".
