Garmin Speak brings Amazon Alexa and Global Positioning System navigation to any vehicle

Garmin Speak brings Amazon Alexa and Global Positioning System navigation to any vehicle

Sometimes it seems like Amazon is trying to take over the world, and a big part of that plan involves Alexa, the company's digital assistant found in its Echo smart speaker products. Garmin Speak can be wirelessly connected to a car's speakers over Bluetooth or through a regular wired 3.5mm cable if the vehicle is older.

Garmin says that you'll be able to play your playlists and podcasts, get traffic updates, hear sports scores and stats, listen to the news, place orders for goods, control your smart home, and even get Garmin's turn-by-turn spoke directions with a bit of lane guidance on the device's tiny display.

Kevin De Bruyne And David Silva Involved In Heated Argument At Half
De Bruyne has played 10 matches this season, scoring twice and assisting a further six strikes. But if you want to be among the great players, you have to win titles.

Garmin has also included Garmin GPS turn-by-turn navigation, which can be activated with voice commands like "Alexa, ask Garmin to find the nearest rest stop".

However, the Speak has a few extra tricks up its sleeve that make it particularly suited for use in the auto.

People Who Are Using Twitter to Show How Common Sexual Assault Is

Garmin on Tuesday introduced its Garmin Speak device with built-in Alexa voice-response technology from Amazon.com (AMZN).

The Garmin Speak will use data from your smartphone, once you download the free Garmin Speak app, through a connection via Bluetooth or AUX cord. Garmin's Speak can also be used for hands-free calling thanks to Sensory's TrulyHandsfree Alexa trigger. 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. However, Garmin's solution is interesting because it allows the driver to put away their phone and use its low-distraction hardware.

Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland unseeded for World Cup draw
