Pass......

I already have a nav unit in the car and don't want to use up cell data for this.
If there was a way for it to use the voice function to play music on command from my 128GB USB stick that's plugged into my head unit, I might bite. That would be kind of cool and useful for me.

Pass - I'd have AppRadio/Android Auto head units that my phone connects to. Google Assistant voice control and a real screen to display maps or whatever else you are wanting to do. For that matter, even without connecting to a head unit I'd rather just use my phone and a window or vent mount.

I get why people want Echos, I have 2. I don't get why anyone with a smartphone would rather use this garmin echo thing in their car instead of their phone. Google Assistant is arguably better than Alexa. The original "OK Google" commands should do everything you'd want or need while driving. I'm not an iPhone person but I'm assuming Siri has all the functionality someone would need in a car. An echo in your car just seems pointless.

After a time you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true...
