Garmin’s working on an Android streaming stick for your TV


Although Garmin is mostly known for its GPS navigation systems, the company recently started expanding its scope to other things like wearables. Now, according to FCC documents, Garmin looks to be ready to introduce an Android-powered media stick. As Liliputing reports, Garmin’s Vivohub 2 (pictured below) is described as a device that can turn your dumb TV into a smart one — similar to products such as the Google Chromecast or Roku Streaming Stick. Strangely enough, the leaked user’s manual suggests the Vivohub 2 runs 4.2 Jelly Bean, which is far from being the freshest version of Android. In addition to that, the stick is said to come with a 1GHz Amlogic AML826 dual-core processor, ARM Mali-400 graphics, 1GB of RAM and support for both Bluetooth and WiFi.
