Amazon has the Garmin Speak with Amazon Alexa (opens in new tab) available for just $44.95 right now. Not only is this price the lowest we've seen it go, but it's also over half off its MSRP. We have seen it go on sale before with the price hovering around $63 for some time and then dropping to $50 last time we wrote about it, but today's discount is its best ever.
Alexa, get me directions
This neat little gadget for your vehicle combines the best of Garmin with the best of Alexa. And now it's under $45.
$62.99 $18 off
The Garmin Speak adds Alexa to your car. That means you can ask her to play music, create to-do lists, check your calendar, or even place an Amazon order. You can also ask her to use Garmin skills, including checking the speed limit and giving you turn-by-turn directions. Think GPS without the super-distracting screen. The diminutive interface animates when you're approaching your next turn, and the visual cues are easy to follow.
You don't need anything special to power it, either. It just uses your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone and your phone's data. Voice prompts will be piped through your car's speakers using either Bluetooth or an AUX cord. The Garmin Speak has an extra-long cable, so you can place it wherever works best for you, and it plugs in to your vehicle's cigarette outlet. New skills and features are being rolled out all the time, too. Map information is automatically updated, more apps are coming soon, and you have access to all sorts of fun Alexa skills in the meantime.
Is it just me, or does it seem like more and more of the posts are links to deals? Almost like it's becoming another BGR/Engadget.
Yes I agree with you. And since when is. GPS screen "super distracting"? No thanks, I don't need Alexa in my car.
My question is why are so many devices coming out giving me functionality I already have on my phone. I really don't see the point.
