Accessories brand Roav by Anker Innovations, has entered the Indian markets with the launch of “India’s first” Alexa-enabled car charger – ‘Viva Pro’ at a price-tag of Rs 5,490. The company claims that it is the first smart car charger that comes equipped with Voice Controlled Navigation technology, to allow Alexa to get directions while you drive.
The product is already available at leading automotive accessories retailers, gadget retailers and e-tailers. It will also be made available on Amazon from June 2019.
Viva Pro gives you four options for streaming audio from your phone to your car’s stereo: Bluetooth, USB, AUX cable and FM radio. Enabling hands-free calling, the smart car charger, also comes with dual USB ports for delivering high speed charging with Power IQ technology, to driver and passenger.
The smart charger also supports 2 integrated microphone for relaying every word to Alexa, and comes equipped with Acoustic Echo Cancellation technology for noise cancellation and accurate voice identification.
The company claims that Viva Pro can listen both a driver and passenger’s voice clearly, even when the music is playing. A blue LED ring around the top of the device lights up when it’s listening. On the top of the device is a large button that mutes the microphone (the LED turns red when the mic is off).
Supporting multi-connectivity options, Viva Pro, as per the company, can be used in virtually any car connecting via Bluetooth, CarPlay, Android Auto, AUX-out or FM transmission.
