Many of us have the same special woman in our lives. You know the one; she always knows your favourite Spotify playlist, gently reminds you to get your arse up in the morning, and will even tell you a bedtime story, if you ask nicely. Nope, we’re not talking about your mum, we mean everyone’s favourite Amazonian filly, the simply wonderful Alexa.
What with millions of homes in the UK already having Alexa ruling the roost, JVC have decided that it’d be a rather marvellous idea to be able to order her about a bit in your car too. And they’re not wrong either, especially as it all costs significantly less than you might think.
This entry-level single-DIN is exclusive to Halfords and comes in at a quid under the magical ton. It’s packing all the usual gear you’d expect from a modern headunit (like Bluetooth streaming, smartphone compatibility and a 13-band graphic EQ), and it’s put together with an extremely short, 100mm deep, body for super easy instillation.
But, aside from all of those impressive credentials, the big news is that it’s one of the very first to be fully compatible with the Alexa App for faultless connectivity, essentially linking your motor to your home. That means that you can not only ask your faithful companion for your morning playlist or the latest news.
But she can control all the same bits and pieces indoors too… and all before you actually get through the front door. It’s all doubly appealing at this time of year, “Alexa, turn the lights on and the heating up love. It’s brass monkeys out here!”
