There’s no denying we live in a digital world. This is especially true for our vehicles! Computerized systems started sneaking into cars in the 1980s, and nowadays you’ll find computers and digital gadgets everywhere. Check out our favorite car gadgets for the holiday season.
- Correct pressure is vital to the life of your tires and the handling of your car, but it can be tricky and time-consuming to measure correctly. A Bluetooth-enabled tire pressure monitor checks your tire pressure constantly and can alert you on your smartphone when the pressure needs adjustment. Many can monitor multiple vehicles at once.
- Don’t waste your next road trip arguing about who gets to charge their phone. Get a multi-port USB charger, charge multiple phones at once, and spend your time arguing about directions, traffic, where to stop for lunch, and what music to listen to instead!
- Losing your keys is expensive and stressful. While we used to make do with keyrings that would whistle when we clapped, technology has evolved. A Bluetooth key locator will save time and headaches by sending GPS location information directly to your smartphone app (of course, that necessitates keeping track of your smartphone, but most also have desktop options).
- Looking to do a little DIY car maintenance with the inexpensive, quality used parts you’ll find at U Wrench It? An automatic car adapter will quickly become your best friend. These handheld devices will help you diagnose your car’s issues straight from the onboard computer. Many also include vehicle locators, mileage logs, and emergency services notifications.
