Without further ado, let’s get right into the best car gadgets and accessories:
HUDWAY Cast Heads-Up Display
Do you sometimes stop watching the road for multiple seconds because of your GPS? Or are you one of those who like texting and driving (don’t do that!)? A recent study from the government has shown that looking away from what’s ahead will multiply by 3 the risk of getting an accident.
Hudway however has the solution for that. Created in 2013, they have been focusing on finding ways to make driving a safer activity. Finally, in august 2017, they released the Hudway Cast, which works by projecting your car’s GPS onto your windscreen.
You’ll still be able to use your smartphone however you want too, and the brightness has been well though-out for driving. What’s more, it works with many applications such as Google Maps, WaZe, Mappy GPS etc… Need to drive at night? No worries, a built-in night mode will adapt automatically the luminosity. Coming at around 100$ on Amazon, make sure to buy it from a trustworthy website.
Handpresso Auto Hybrid Coffee Maker
Yup, you’ve read that right: make coffee while you’re driving! Nothing beats a well-deserved cup of coffee after a long drive. Unfortunately, sometimes you forget to take some coffee with you, or there’s no place near to grab some. But once more, it’s all good because we’ve got the ultimate remedy:
This hybrid coffee maker is small and comes in a small discreet black box. When you open it, you can use it as a platter to put your coffee on it, and comes with a full coffee-kit: 2 unbreakable glasses, a small napkin, a special filter and adapter.
The best part is that it’s so darn easy to use. All you need to do is plug it in, put a bit of water in it, a premade coffee capsule and voila! Oh, you do need to press the “ON” button or you won’t really be getting any coffee. Finally, press the “STOP” button whenever your coffee’s ready and voila!
Of course, we do not recommend you making coffee while you drive, so don’t actually start making coffee without anyone’s help mid-drive. Grab one of those at around 250$, full set and a few dozens of capsules for cheap.
Nonda ZUS Smart Tire Safety Monitor
Perfect if you want to increase your sense of security at all times. Just with your mobile phone app, you can track tire pressure with an easy to install external kit. A special algorithm called “AccurateTemp” allows you to detect and sort of leaks before it’s too late in real time.
The best part is that it comes with a 100% safe any-theft system, and can be installed in only 5 minutes!
YI Mirror Dash Camera
Just like we said before, feeling safe on the road is essential to be able to drive confidently and smoothly. As such, a dashcam might be one of your best options to capture every single moment of what’s happening. Not only it can be decisive in critical moments if an accident occurs for example, but you still will be able to save fun moments of you and your pals on a road trip.
It records both the front and the rear view and leaves almost no blind spots concerning the sides: you almost get a 360° recording of your surroundings. Equipped with a 4.3” touchscreen and a 1080p camera, it alerts you after 2 hours of driving to make sure you take a short break.
Blending in easily with almost any car’s interior, you’ll feel like Ryan Gosling in “Drive”. Just try some at least once for yourself, because the feeling of leather against your skin when turning your steering wheel is so darn soothing and satisfying.
Take some comfortable ones of course: what’s important is to feel good in them. Need to feel even more badass? Perhaps grab a fingerless model, or even one with a few metal bits on the back of your hand…
The Camper’s Car
With these, you’ll be taking your car to some next-gen adventure possibilities:
- Rooftop Hammock
Not even kidding you, TrailNest for example has made a perfect design allowing you to equip your rooftop with a hammock. It can be mounted and removed in a matter of seconds, taking only minimal space in your car’s trunk.
Just make sure that you won’t actually forget you are on your car’s rooftop when you wake up or you might end up falling really bad.
- Road Shower
Showering is often neglected when going on long road trips without any real water source usable for cleaning yourself. However, with a rack-mounted road shower, it’s all good: 19 liters of water capacity, and a hand pump that comes in with the whole shower kit. It does add some extra weight to the car, but if you end up in lack of water one day, no problem!
- Rooftop tent
Unfortunately, you’re not actually putting a tent on top of your car, but pitching your tent on your vehicle will be possible. This allows you to set a wider and cozier tent where you really feel at home. However, there still is the possibility of actually putting your sleeping bag on top of the car so that’s pretty neat.
The final touch? The top of the tent is see-through, allowing you to fall asleep while stargazing wherever you go.
And there you have it, the best car gadgets you can ever get for a medium-low price right now… Make sure to at least try one of those because you’ll quickly realize how great they are!
