Garmin Speak GPS device with Amazon Alexa gets a 50% price cut

garmin speak with alexa is half off 2

The Garmin Speak with Alexa is half off on Amazon right now. The portable Alexa GPS product for your car can be picked up for $50, half off its normal price. If you’re a fan of the Amazon Alexa voice assistant, and are in need of a new GPS, this discounted device may be of interest to you.

Basically an Echo Dot on wheels, the main appeal of the Garmin Speak is that it’s hands-free design. The simple and small OLED screen displays directions using a series of black-and-white icons. If you are considering using it for your next trip, be sure to check out our review of the Garmin Speak for a more detailed analysis of the device.

The main puck-shaped circle measures a meager 1.5 inches, and occupies very little space on your windshield. It offers everything we’ve come to expect out of an Alexa product — with a portable twist. It connects to your phone using the Garmin Speak app, which allows you to utilize your preferred navigation and music software. The Garmin Speak does not come with an internal battery, so you’ll have to power it via the 12V connector in your car. Due to this, along with the fact that you have to say “Alexa, ask Garmin” every time you use it, the device has received very average reviews on Amazon and elsewhere. The vast majority of these reviews were posted before the significant drop in price.

Some users also experience connectivity issues and have had problems with the app’s software. If your car doesn’t have Bluetooth, an AUX port is a necessity, as the included speakers are not something you want to use to listen to music. If you’re not a fan of Alexa, or prefer to use your phone for navigation, a much cheaper option is to buy a USB car charger and a car mount for your phone. However, if you like Alexa and want it in your car (but not stuck to your windshield), keep the Muse Auto in mind. It costs the same price, and includes the same audio features, but fits inside a cupholder. Be sure to check if your phone is compatible before purchasing, as only iOS 10 and higher, or Android 6.0 and higher, are currently supported.
