There was a time when the purpose of a car was getting from point A to point B. As the years went on, a car became an extension of yourself. There were more colours, styles, and designs. These days our relationship with them has grown even more. Here are some cool car gadgets that your car deserves
- Sticky gel pad
Everyone has had those moments of being in their car with their phone or change and not knowing where to put it. If it falls between the seats you will most likely never see it again. Sticky gel pads, such as Heininger’s DashGrip, can be applied to your dashboard and will hold almost anything. They are cheap and can be removed without leaving behind residue.
- Dashboard video camera
We’ve all seen those car accident shows where everything is captured on video. Prices for dashboard video cameras are getting lower and lower, with video quality getting higher and higher. Battery and storage limits are also improving, making sure you are covered if and when an accident occurs.
- Steering wheel desk
This cool car gadget is great for those late night trips to fast food restaurants with your friends. This desk attaches to the steering wheel, giving you the perfect space to rest your food. There is even a drink holder compartment so you won’t have to deal with any messy spills.
- Inflatable mattress
While it may be tradition for long car trips to be uncomfortable, they don’t have to be. With an inflatable car travel mattress, you can turn your back seat into a spacious bedroom. Prices are generally over $100, but it’s worth it to avoid the backaches.
- Chewbacca seatbelt cover
OK, so this one might not be the most practical, but it sure is cool. If you’re a Star Wars fan, you will love this. It’s as simple as wrapping and securing it around your seatbelt. Not only does it look great, but it feels soft on your neck and shoulder too.
- Electronic bumper sticker
One of the toughest decisions you can make is deciding what bumper sticker to put on your car. What if it bubbles? What if something else means more next month? But what if you could display all the bumper stickers you want? With an electronic bumper sticker, like the Talelight, you can show off as many bumper sticker designs as you want. The safe adhesive clings the waterproof device to your car, and can be updated any time.
- Heads-up display
This one is a bit more expensive – coming in at almost $1000. A portable heads-up display lets you keep your eyes on the road while still letting you read directions, check speed, fuel, and much more.
- Remote car starter
Whether you’re showing-off or in a rush, a remote car starter – like found at remotecarstarterhero.com – is a great gadget. It keeps your car safe and secure, can work in connection to your smartphone app, and simply looks cool. They come in a range of prices, and you’ll have to check it will work with your brand of car.
