As cool as CarPlay is and having a dedicated Siri button integrated into your vehicle, we doubt many car owners would be willing to buy a brand new car just for those features, right? Well if you do want Siri functionality in the car but don’t want to splurge on a new car, how does a $79 gadget from Beanco Technology sound to you?

Dubbed Mobile Home, it’s basically an accessory that you can place in your car. It can be clipped to your side door, visor, dashboard, and etc. and it is basically a huge home button. When depressed, it will activate Siri on your phone for you. This is considered safer by the manufacturers as you won’t have to fumble for your phone, and with the Mobile Home button being about twice as large as your iPhone’s home button, it should be easy to find.

The good thing about the Mobile Home accessory is that it will also work together with your car’s hands-free kit, if you have one installed. This means that you will be able to speak naturally and it should be picked up by your car’s microphone, as opposed to you having to speak at the direction of your iPhone’s microphone.

Siri will also be able to playback the information she found via your car’s speakers, so don’t worry about not being able to hear her. Granted $79 is a bit pricey for an accessory, but it’s definitely cheaper than having to buy a new car!
