Overview: The Speak Music Muse Auto brings Amazon's Alexa voice
assistant to your vehicle. This small device pairs to your smartphone via
Bluetooth, and lets you control numerous devices with your voice, while you keep
your hands on the steering wheel. It attaches to your dashboard via its
magnetic/adhesive mount, and is powered via USB/DC power port through the
included adapter. It can interface with your vehicle's audio system via
Bluetooth, USB, or Aux input.
Alexa Skills: Muse Auto gives you access to over 30,000 Alexa skills,
allowing you to control countless activities from your in-car entertainment to
closing your garage door. By speaking "Alexa", you can choose your
music/entertainment sources, including SiriusXM, iHeart Radio, TuneIn, Audible,
and Amazon Music. It works with many Smart Home devices, including Wemo and
Nest. Other Alexa skills include shopping, weather forecasts, social media,
calendar, and numerous other activities.
Muse Auto App: The free Muse Auto app, available for Apple and Android
devices, lets you connect to the world of Alexa. The app is compatible with
Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch with iOS 10.0 or later, and Android devices,
running Android 6.0 and up.
Connections/Controls: The device is small -- only 1-5/8" in diameter
and just over 1/2" tall. It has a connecting cable that splits into two
pigtails: a 54" USB connection (Type A plug) and a 79" auxiliary audio cable
(3.5mm plug). If you connect to your vehicle's audio system via the aux cable,
you'll need to power it with the USB cable (using the included DC power/dual USB
port adapter). If your system has a USB input, it will likely provide power for
the device, as well as the audio interface. The unit has a "microphone" button
to activate voice control, and track skip (forward and backward) buttons for
Mounting: The low-profile Muse Auto device has a magnetic mounting
disk that attaches to your dashboard via an adhesive backing. A spare adhesive
pad is included, should you want to move the device to another vehicle.
