Garmin’s automotive infotainment systems to have Alexa Custom Assistant

Garmin® International, Inc. expanded its strategic relationship with Amazon with the integration of Alexa Custom Assistant into Garmin’s in-vehicle infotainment systems. Alexa Custom Assistant is a comprehensive solution that allows automakers to access Alexa’s advanced AI to create their own intelligent assistants tailored to their brand personality and customer needs. A designated Tier 1 automotive OEM supplier, Garmin provides infotainment systems, navigation software, voice recognition and other electronics to leading manufacturers such as BMW Group, Daimler, Ford, Honda, Toyota, and Geely.

Garmin’s Automotive voice development team has been working closely with Amazon to adopt Alexa Custom Assistant and is now showcasing its integration for adoption in production vehicles. The Alexa Custom Assistant technology will be available on Garmin’s latest infotainment solutions, which are built on Qualcomm’s latest-generation chipsets. Automakers will still work with Amazon directly to define the experience and access custom wake word and voice for their Alexa Custom Assistant implementation.
