If you've heard of iOttie, then you've probably heard of car mounts like the Easy One Touch 4. These popular devices give you a way to go hands-free while driving, and they attach in a number of different ways, from your car's air vents to the CD player slot. Some even have wireless charging. Today, they are getting a new kind of connectivity. The Easy One Touch Connect will have Amazon Alexa built right into it.
Alexa will support most of the regular features, including access to 70,000+ skills. Last year, Amazon started releasing bigger and better toolkits for companies that wanted to find more ways to incorporate Alexa into products. The Easy One Touch Connect is one of the first accessories to make use of the Alexa Mobile Accessory Kit. You'll be able to ask Alexa about the weather, get directions, control your smart home devices, and more. The dual microphones will include noise-canceling software so Alexa doesn't get distracted by the traffic around you.
In addition to all that, the Connect is designed to hold your smartphone safely and securely. It uses the same mechanisms iOttie has incorporated in other devices so you can lock your smartphone and remove it with one hand motion. The Connect's shock-absorbing technology means your phone is locked in place and won't get jostled around while you drive.
The Easy One Touch Connect is being introduced by iOttie at CES 2019 and will be on Amazon and iOttie.com early this year. Until then, check out all the other iOttie car mounts available right now.
