Jakhar polled 4,99,752 votes while his BJP rival Swaran Singh Salaria polled 3,06,533, poll officials said. Khajuria (retd) lost his security deposit. "He has been a four-term MP from there", said Singh.

However, the Speak has a few extra tricks up its sleeve that make it particularly suited for use in the auto.

The Garmin Speak will use the paid smartphone's data connection to remain connected to the internet.

Users can ask Garmin Speak to find the nearest gas station, barbecue restaurant or other destination just by talking out loud, the company said. Alexa responses, which also include things like music and audiobooks, stream right through a vehicle's audio system. Garmin's Speak can also be used for hands-free calling thanks to Sensory's TrulyHandsfree Alexa trigger. Turn-by-turn navigation is packaged with the Speak and doesn't require a subscription. The upshot is that there's nothing to pull a driver's eyes away from the road for very long. Garmin - a brand known for its Global Positioning System fitness watches - has unveiled a new smart device which is said to be the first in-car gadget to offer drivers hands-free access to Alexa, as well as provide navigation through Garmin's own tech.
