Garmin has announced the debut of Garmin Speak Plus with Amazon Alexa, adding a built-in dash camera to its innovative Garmin Speak.

The in-vehicle1device is enabled with Amazon’s cloud-based Alexa voice service for hands-free access to music, news briefings, sports scores, GPS navigation from Garmin, andmore.

The Garmin Speak Plus will automatically record and save files when an incident is detected, and introduces advanced driver assistance features that include Forward Collision and Lane Departure Warnings.3

“The Garmin Speak Plus is an easy way to bring Amazon Alexa’s popular functionality to your car,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Just as Amazon continues to enhance Alexa’s voice service with exciting new skills, Garmin creatively merges its world-renowned GPS navigation and camera technology with the Speak Plus. The added dash cam is discreet yet provides invaluable peace of mind to drivers who want an extra set of eyes with them in case an incident occurs.”

The new dash cam gives Garmin Speak Plus users increased awareness on the road. It offers helpful alerts like Forward Collision Warnings that lets drivers know if they’re too close to the vehicle ahead; Lane Departure Warnings if the driver drifts off the road or into oncoming traffic; and “Go Alerts” to notify drivers when stopped traffic ahead begins to move. At just an inch and a half in size, the compact Garmin Speak Plus features a familiar LED light ring – reminiscent of the Amazon Echo – and a bright OLED display showing lane guidance arrows to guide drivers to their destination, and unobtrusively secures to a vehicle’s windshield with a magnetic mount for easy stow and go.
