If you’ve ever wanted Alexa in your car, now’s your chance!

Amazon has the Certified Refurbished (read: rebuilt and tested as all the trimmings to ensure peak performance) Echo Auto on sale for just $45. That’s the lowest price for this super popular car add-on we’ve seen in a long time. More than 2,000 reviewers gave it an impeccable rating.

Alexa for your car

All those over-the-moon reviewers are onto something. The Echo Auto is a smart little gadget that instantly makes your old vehicle smart. It connects to your car’s stereo via the auxiliary input and pairs with your phone via Bluetooth. Then you can talk to Alexa just like at home.

“I’m really impressed with this little device”, wrote an elated five-star Amazon reviewer. “I’ve tried other Alexa devices for cars, but they’ve always struggled to pick up my voice over sounds like the radio, an open window, or other people chatting in the car. [This device] always picks up my voice no matter the noise level.”

And if you have Amazon Prime, of course you get free shipping and much more. not a member yet? Sign up for a free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Say goodbye to road noise on phone calls

Don’t worry about the roar of your engine, the wind or the traffic getting in the way of your voice. The Echo Auto is designed with eight mighty microphones so it can pick up voice commands clearly. It’s absolutely genius for making hands-free calls and calling up your favorite driving tunes on Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and more.

“…This hands-free feature is very valuable to me, as I often drive in heavy traffic and I am not always able to stop to find the information I need,” a happy Amazon shopper shared. Alexa can help you find restaurants, shops and more. You can of course stream music and let her tell jokes, but you can also listen to podcasts and make lists while you drive or wait in traffic. If you have other Echos devices in the house, you can walk in on them or send an announcement! You can also make a call with the Echo Auto…”

For only $45, the Certified Refurbished Echo Auto is one of the best ways to beautify your car in an instant. It’s a safe alternative to using your phone while driving, thanks to its advanced voice recognition and industry-leading voice assistant. So now you can keep your eyes on the road instead of your phone.

“…This gadget has made my life so much easier and driving more enjoyable,” added another five star reviewer. “I think it was worth every penny and I love it…”

The Echo Auto includes a vent, a car power adapter, a microUSB cable, and a 3.5mm auxiliary cable. Happy trails!
