BOSS Audio LXA5 Alexa-Enabled Head Unit Coming 2018

Double Din 6.2″ Touchscreen In-Dash Multimedia Receiver with Amazon Alexa Voice Assistant Built-in

BOSS Audio Systems just announced their first Amazon Alexa-enabled aftermarket in-dash multimedia receiver will be on display at the upcoming CES 2018. The new (Model# LXA5) Double Din with 6.2″ Touchscreen head unit 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. Other features of the LXA5 include AM/FM/CD/DVD, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling, and wireless audio streaming.

“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.”

The BOSS Audio LXA5 appears to be very similar in looks and functionality to the recently announced Soundstream VRA-67B Alexa Head Unit.

No word yet on pricing or a release date for either head unit.
