Automotive techs today are advancing at lightning-fast speeds. They make our rides safer and more enjoyable than ever. Best of all, you don’t need to buy a new car to be able to enjoy the latest and greatest innovations. You can equip your current ride with the features that come with the newest cars on the road. Here’s a list of some of the best car gadgets available.
First on the list is a car cover. Most people aren’t aware of the importance of getting the best car covers. Without a car cover, your car will face a lot of damage from debris, dust, debris, and even UV rays from the sun. As time goes by, these things will cause a lot of damage to your car if you don’t take preventive measures. The good news is a car cover will solve all your problems.
Car Dash Cam
This is another must-have accessory. A dash cam is a tiny digital camera mounted to the dashboard of your car. It is used to shoot the driver’s journey when the car starts moving. A dash cam may not be able to protect you physically, but it does ensure your safety when you’re on the road and the footage from it can be used to determine who’s responsible in case there’s an accident. Dash cams are a must for anyone who spends a lot of time on the road.
According to auto experts, every rider should have a jump starter kit. If anything were to happen on the road, there’s nothing to guarantee that anyone will stop over and lend you a helping hand. This is why you should always have a jump starter kit in your car. The main function is to provide a battery source for your car so you can start it when it dies. Simply hook the clamps from the kit to the car battery. A jump starter kit can also be used as an auxiliary power source.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System
There’s a large number of car accidents on the road each year because of the number of unsafe vehicles on the road. A tire pressure monitoring system is a great way to increase road safety. The TPMS was created to report real-time tire-pressure information to the driver via either a gauge or low-pressure warning light, or a pictogram display. This helps to reduce traffic accident, prevent poor fuel economy, and reducing tire wear.
This device is one every car should have. It connects your smartphone to your vehicle so you’ll know where your car is at all times. GPS trackers are usually ideal for parents trying to monitor their kids; it is, however, beneficial to every car in case someone tries to steal your car.
A lifting device, sometimes called a bottle, is a mechanic device use to lift heavy loads by applying great force. If you have a flat tire, want to maintain some parts of your car engine, or if you want to replace your worn out tires, you’ll need a bottle jack to lift your car.
Fobo Tire Plus
If your tires are properly inflated, they wear more evenly, which helps with fuel efficiency and with increasing the lifespan of your rubber tires. Instead of using a handheld pressure gauge to check if your tires are properly inflated, use a Fobo Tire Plus system. It uses a series of Bluetooth gauges to relay the information directly to your smartphone. Fobo will then send an alert to your phone whenever your tire pressure is low. The app gives you a tutorial that you can easily follow and with it, your installation should take less than five minutes to complete.
Most of us hate the thought of starting our day without a cup of coffee. It is easy to forget to fetch a cup from your coffeemaker or favorite barista when you’re running late. They simply don’t have enough time to stop by their preferred coffee shop on their way to work. This particular accessory makes it so you no longer have to worry about getting a cup of coffee. The Handpresso is a coffeemaker that is tailor-made for your car. The unit works with whatever grounds or ESE espresso pods you prefer. All you need to do is plug it directly into your 12-volt port or cigarette lighter in your car.
Rear View Camera
This accessory is mounted on your back window or your license plate. It provides a 170-degree field of view behind you. It is streamed directly to your car’s infotainment system in HD color.
This is a perfect accessory for drivers with allergies or those with dogs that love hitching a ride home. It connects directly to your 12-volt plug and helps to neutralize airborne dust, pollen, pet dander, bacteria, as well as smells like smoke, mold, or lingering sweat in your car.
