So, you’ve already got an Echo Dot device in every room plus Alexa to place your grocery orders at Whole Foods, tell you the weather, and…do pretty much everything else from the comfort of your home. But what about your car?

Amazon’s Echo Auto, currently 60% off ahead of Prime Day, is a hands-free (increasingly important these days) device that brings Alexa to your commutes and road trips. Simply mount the contraption to your air vent like a small air freshener and have Alexa right there for anything you could need while driving.

Learn about the Grand Canyon before pulling up to it with the family, ask Alexa to remind you to pick up dog food after your hike, or simply see what’s coming up on your calendar (and how much more road-tripping you can squeeze in before heading back to the home office). Your car might even be compatible with the Echo Auto and be able to play your favorite music with a simple, “Hey, Alexa…”



Prime Day is almost here, but this is one incredible deal you don't have to to wait for.
