Cars are no longer simply vehicles which take us from point A to point B and much like everything else in the world, they have been heavily influenced by the incredible modern technology which have at our fingertips. Whilst many newer cars do come with a wide range of in-car tech which help us to drive safer and be more entertained whilst driving, there are still a great many gadgets on the market which you can find to really enhance your driving experience. If you want to give your car an injection of tech, here are some of the coolest products out there.
Bestek Jump Starter
Jumper cables have been the savior of many a motorist over the years, but they do have a certain downside… you will need two cars for them to work. This of course is not so handy when you are in the back-of-beyond without another car in sight, this is why the Bestek jump starter makes for the perfect solution. This self-powered device can be charged up and used whenever necessary to boost your engine, it features 2 USB ports to charge devices, and a flashlight to help you see what you are doing.
Nobody wants to contemplate having a car accident, but as they say, being prepared is half the victory. This handy device is designed to smash windows should you find yourself trapped inside after a collision. This gadget simply needs to be applied to the glass, and then upon pushing a button it will send a short, sharp blast of power to the tip, shattering the window and freeing you. The product also features a retractable blade to cut through the seatbelt, a true lifesaver.
Fobo Tire Plus
Deflated tires will ensure that the tires degrade faster, that you use a lot more gas, and that your turning and braking abilities will be significantly lowered. To avoid this, use the Fobo Tire Plus, a small air gauge, which regularly monitors the levels in the tires. The gadget connects to your phone via bluetooth and will regularly update you when you need to refill.
Sometimes gadgets are just for the fun of it and this is why we love the Handspresso, a coffee maker which is designed for in-car use. Rushing out the house often means we miss our morning cup of Joe, but not anymore. Simply add an ESE coffee pod or throw in your own grind, plug the handy piece into the cigarette lighter and let the coffee brew as you make your way to work, completely unnecessary, but very cool.
Garmin Head Up Display
Garmin make so many great pics of car tech and our favorite is this head up display, which simply makes driving easier. Instead of peeking below the wheel to see how fast you are going or how much gas you have, you can simply avert your gaze slightly and see it in digital display on the windscreen. Most cars are designed well in the regard, until you change the seating position however, then it can cause a problem. The Garmin unit is sleek and not noticeable on the dash whilst the digital projection can be seen day and night, with absolute clarity.
