(CNBNewsnet)(May 23, 2018)--Car gadgets are evolving at a faster pace nowadays. Ever since Apple CarPlay and Google Auto became widely available, more smart gadgets were introduced. Anything from in-car entertainment systems to a smart reverse camera can now be added to your car, even when the vehicle isn’t the latest model.
Some car gadgets are more useful than the others. In this article, we are going to focus more on the essentials and talk about the must-have gadgets you should add to your car. Let’s get started, shall we?
BlackVue Dash Cam
Having a dash cam installed is more of a necessity than an option these days. There are so many benefits you can gain from having a dash cam inside the car. For starters, you have clear evidence when you are involved in an accident, which means insurance claims and other matters related to the accident are easier to handle.
The BlackVue DR650S-2CH 32G Dash Cam is about as good as it gets when it comes to dashboard cameras. The kit comes with two cameras, so you can monitor the front and rear of the car. It also supports Full HD recording; you get crisp 1080p video whenever you drive the car.
The initial setup of this camera is a bit tricky. The BlackVue needs to be connected to an OBD II port of your car for it to work optimally. Complete the setup, however, and the camera will also act as a parking camera. It also supports a wide range of surveillance features. For the price, the BlackVue is highly recommended.
Bestek Jump Starter
There are a lot of car tips you can follow when it comes to maintaining a new and old car. Even with the best maintenance, however, there will be mornings when you find that the car’s battery has been drained and you need to jumpstart the vehicle. Having a jump starter will make the whole process more manageable.
The Bestek Jump Starter is very portable. It is also incredibly affordable at just under $50. It even has two USB ports, so you can use it as an ordinary power bank when it is not used for jumpstarting your car.
The jumper cables are removable; this is one of the best features of this device, since it allows you to use the 13,600 mAh battery to charge phones without big cables dangling from one end. When you need it, though, the Jump Starter is more than capable of starting your car.
Fobo Tire Plus
The last gadget on our list also helps with car maintenance. The Fobo Tire Plus is a set of tire caps that measures your tire pressure in real-time. It connects with your phone via Bluetooth and relays information about tire pressure at any time.
If you are serious about maintaining maximum fuel efficiency, keeping sufficient tire pressure is an important thing to do. The Fobo Tire Plus certainly helps make this task easier to complete. It is a bit pricy though, but you can get a set at a discount at certain online retailers and stores.
