Whether you just use your car to get to and from work each day or turn to it for leisure, there’s no denying it’s a central part of our lives. With the improvements in technology throughout the last few years, there’s now various cool gadgets that are both useful and helpful for improving your driving experience.
Here we take a look at five of the best new gadgets and items for your car and give a few reasons why you should consider purchasing these particular devices.
Sennheiser MB Pro 1 Bluetooth Headset
One of the finest Bluetooth headset units on the market, the Sennheiser MB Pro 1 kit is an absolute must-have. In terms of comfort and sound quality, it’s unrivalled and the ultra-noise cancelling equipment installed in the software allows the driver to completely blank out any background noise from the back seats. This particular kit allows two different devices to connect up to the kit, which is useful for those who need to use it for a number of purposes.
In today’s age, a SatNav is almost crucial. Maps quickly date, are unwieldy to follow while driving and new roads are being built on a regular basis. The new TomTom Go 500
is perhaps the greatest of them all and users are able to update their features via the internet. With a built-in Bluetooth setting, you can connect it up to the car and other devices.
In fact, many learner drivers are now being encouraged to make a Sat Nav system a natural part of their driving experience as they study the rules of the road and the practical skills needed when behind the wheel.
Garmin multi-car charger
With the Garmin multi-car charger, you are able to add two high-speed USB ports to your vehicle’s 12V outlet without losing the ability to power your compatible devices. With this gadget, users can charge mobile phones, tablet devices or any other appliance that requires power on the go.
This is particularly useful for long distances, and for those who travel in larger groups. How many times have you been stuck in the car without phone battery? It’s time to make that a thing of the past.
Alcosense Digital Breathalyser Lite
This is one of the greatest new gadgets to include in your car and is a brilliant addition to ensure that you are always safe behind the wheel. It is incredibly accurate, within +/- 0.02 per cent of your BAC (Blood Alcohol Content), and is a worthy investment. Unlike some alcohol breathalyser systems, this is reusable and uses disposable blow tubes.
These help to provide a controlled way of getting your breath samples to the sensor and there is a self-clean function in place so you don’t have to worry about that. This is an excellent gadget to have, especially if you have enjoyed a pint after work and aren’t sure whether or not you should drive home.
EE Buzzard in-car 4G Hotspot
In the modern era, Wi-Fi hotspots are becoming incredibly useful. This gadget called EE Buzzard
generates a Wi-Fi network that can support up to ten devices at any particular time and is incredibly easy to use and hide in your car.
In terms of performance, that depends on your network coverage and long trips in rural areas will affect your ability to get full use out of the dongle but, as technology improves further, this should become less of an issue as EE extend its range and coverage across the United Kingdom.
