Earlier this year Anker announced its Google Assistant Powered 12V accessory socket USB Charger/ voice assistant module the Roav Bolt. The Bolt plugs into your 12v socket in your car and gives you 2 USB power outlets and Voice integration with Google Assistant.
The best bit? It’s now on the market.
The Bolt acts as a bridge between your phone and your car’s (built in or after market) Bluetooth receiver to give you voice control of your device and sound output via your built in amplifier and speakers. Of course you’ll need Bluetooth in your car for this to work.
Once installed and set up, the Roav Bolt will give you access to Assistant and everything it currently do. Want to play music, initiate a call or commence navigation on your phone? Assistant (and the Roav Bolt) can do it all.
Traditionally, Anker has not retailed in Australia, however there is now an authorised reseller operating in Australia myanker.com.au. The Roav Bolt is not currently listed on the site, but we’re more hopeful than we would have previously have been.
We’d be interested in testing out how the Roav Bolt works, especially with an Android phone in a dock running Android Auto at the same time….. it could be an interesting experiment.
