While most new cars are built with Bluetooth and smart features, older cars cannot stream music and aren’t designed for hands-free calls either. But don't let that stop you from bringing your jalopy into the 21st century: There’s a way to add Bluetooth to your car without taking it to the shop for an upgrade.

This Anker Roav Bolt Car Charger plugs into your car’s cigarette lighter and instantly adds Google Assistant to your vehicle. And it’s on sale for $20, or $30 off, at Best Buy — today only! Are you feeling whopped? Well, you should be, cuz that's a whopping 60 percent off! 

It's three, three, three devices in one!

Maybe you need to search for directions while keeping your eyes on the road. Maybe you just want to listen to your favorite songs and podcasts from Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music and more at a moment’s notice. Anker's got you covered.

Once plugged in, pair your smartphone to the Anker Roav Bolt Car Charger and that’s it. Music and podcasts will stream from your phone and you'll have access to the Google Assistant for up-to-the-minute news, weather reports, sports scores and much more. And of course, driving directions with voice navigation via Google Maps. Just ask the Google Assistant!

"I love this little device," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "I pair it with my Samsung Galaxy S10+ and it works flawlessly. It auto-connects when I turn my car on, so no stressful re-connecting. I use it a lot for directions, since I can just use my voice, and to play music through my cars speakers wirelessly..."

Charge it up!

Lest we overlook the obvious: While you're digging your tunes and plotting your route, the Roav Bolt will simultaneously charge your phone — and/or e-reader and/or vape pen and/or tablet — thanks to its dual USB ports. 

"Big fan of this product — streams music flawlessly while completely hands-free," shared a satisfied Best Buy shopper. "It's durable and charges multiple devices at once. Huge plus. Been looking for something like this for a long time and I'm glad I found it!"

At $20 (was $50), the Anker Roav Bolt Car Charger is also great for hands-free phone calls with no annoying echoes, thanks to powerful noise-canceling microphones that filter out just about any background noise. It’s the ultimate co-pilot!

"Very easy to connect to phone and car." added another five-star reviewer. "The far-field microphones are dramatically better at picking up my voice than my phone or car Bluetooth was, and the noise-cancelling works! I can place phone calls with my windows down and the person I'm calling doesn't hear the wind at all! I basically have a Google Home in my car now and it is amazing!..."

Remember: This incredible sale is for today only. So, you know, chop-chop!
