11 tech devices I use to solve little problems that used to annoy me all the time

Roav VIVA Alexa-Enabled 2-Port USB Car Charger, $59.99, available at Amazon

All modern smartphones have a smart assistant built into them: iPhones have Siri, and Android phones have Google Assistant, so it might seem redundant to also have Alexa in your car. But the Roav VIVA proves that isn’t the case at all. The car charger has two USB ports to charge your devices, and a microphone that lets you access Amazon’s Alexa. It’s kind of like keeping an Echo Dot in your car, except the VIVA is a lot smaller.

Once it’s plugged in, the VIVA can connect to your Amazon account through an app on your phone, and can be used like a regular Alexa-enabled device. You can ask the VIVA for directions from Google Maps, Apple Maps, or Waze, and they’ll pop up on your phone’s screen. You can ask it to play music from your Amazon Music Unlimited account, and it’ll start playing the song, album, or playlist you requested.


It’s even possible to control your smart home accessories from the Roav VIVA, so you can turn your smart light bulbs on as you’re coming up to the driveway, so you don’t have to walk into a dark house.
