Bring Alexa into your Car with Muse

Regular readers will know that I got a little techie/DIY a while back and decided to but an Echo Dot in my car.  I’ve gotten a kick out of having Alexa help run my life and so through a bit of a kludge-fest in my vehicle, I now have the ability to use her wherever I am.
 
I figured that it would only be a matter of time before someone started making that easier and it looks like that time has come.  A company called MuseAuto has created the device in the image above.
 
Called The Muse, it is a device that runs the Alexa system, but is about the size of a knob on your car radio.  It connects to your phone via Bluetooth and uses the Muse app.  It has the capability to perform over 30,000 Alexa skills such as  to play music, podcasts, get directions, add appointments to your calendar, check your calendar, order online and call people hands-free. 
 
 
I don’t have any experience with Muse, but it certainly seems like an easier system than the one I created by myself. z
