OXNARD, California, January 5, 2018
BOSS Audio Systems, a leader and innovator in 12 Volt aftermarket audio and video products will be demonstrating its first Amazon Alexa-enabled aftermarket in-dash receiver at the upcoming 2018 CES.
The new (Model# LXA5) Double Din with 6.2″ Touchscreen will allow users to seamlessly integrate Amazon’s voice service, connecting through Wi-Fi via the user’s smartphone data connection/Hotspot.
Users will have similar Alexa functionality in their cars as they do at home. “We strive to provide our customers with the latest technology for their vehicles,” explains BOSS Audio’s VP of Sales, Doug Kern. “Our customers will be able to access the tens of thousands of available Alexa voice skills. They will be able to control their Alexa-enabled smart home products while driving, and before arriving home, using prompts like ‘Alexa, turn the heat on at 72 degrees’, ‘Alexa, close the garage door’. They will be able to ask things like ‘Alexa tell me a joke’, ‘Alexa, what’s the news?’, ‘”Alexa, play country music,’ and more.”
Other features of the LXA5 include AM/FM/CD/DVD, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling, and wireless audio streaming.
BOSS will showcase the LXA5 at the Verona Sky Villa Suite at the Westgate hotel Tuesday January 9th – Thursday January 11th.
