Unsurprisingly, You Can Add Alexa to Your Car for Less This Prime Day

July 16, 2019 Cars By

Amazon’s 40-hour plus extravaganza known as Prime Day 2019 is chock-filled with deals on products from hundreds or thousands of brands — but perhaps unsurprisingly, deals on the company’s own products like the Fire tablets and televisions and Kindle e-readers often rank among the best. That also extends to items packing Amazon’s Alexa personal assistant, who’s made her way from being trapped in a self-standing home speaker into plentiful other products. Some of which even are designed to work inside your car.

Which brings us to our current product deal: the Garmin Speak Plus, a handy little gadget that sticks to your windshield to serve as both a dash cam, a forward collision and lane departure alert system, and, thanks to a small screen and the integration of Alexa, a navigation system and digital assistant. All you have to do is pair it with your smartphone via Bluetooth or an aux cable, and it can serve up directions or music, check the traffic ahead, even work with your smart devices to prep your house for your impending arrival. And while it normally costs $180, because it’s Prime Day, you can grab it for 20% off today.
