If your dad is a smart home junkie, then it’s likely he already has a smartphone, smart speakers, a smart TV, a smart home security system, a smart toothbrush and maybe even a smart refrigerator. But does he have a smart car?

He will soon, because right now, the Roav Viva Alexa-Enabled Car Charger by Anker is on sale for $20, or $9 off at Amazon with promo code VIVACAR199. This clever two-in-one device adds Alexa to your vehicle while juicing up your phone.

Say you need to search for directions while keeping your eyes on the road. Or maybe you just want to listen to your favorite songs and podcasts at a moment’s notice. Just ask Alexa!

Making and taking phone calls is a breeze, thanks to two powerful noise-canceling microphones that filter out just about any background noise.

“This thing is great. I never have to touch my phone. It hears me every time. Does exactly what I expected it to do,” wrote a satisfied Amazon reviewer. “Plays music. Gets directions. Links to my phone while it's still in my pocket. Great audible verification that it has connected. Works perfectly.”

“I love this little device,” added another five-star shopper. “It is very simple to use. Plays my music from Amazon Music and Amazon Prime, creates new playlists for me, makes my phone calls, reads directions I need from the Waze app. I can't live without it.”

It features dual USB ports, so just plug this baby into your car’s cigarette lighter to sync with your devices and you’re off.

Got a technophobe on your hands? No worries, says this reviewer: “Even my father was impressed—so much so that I’m getting him one,” says the shopper. “He doesn't get along with technology very well, but he loves the Roav Viva. You can’t go wrong.”

The reviews quoted above reflect the most recent versions at the time of publication.
