A lot of people see their vehicle as their second office and if we go further with this metaphor, it is more than clear that this requires some serious furnishing. In the age of the internet, cloud and smartphones, your car needs to become a part of a larger high-tech system. One of the ways to get there is to equip it with all the gadgets, devices and items you deem as necessary. With this in mind, here are our top five picks for items that can help your tech up your car in 2018.

Smartphone mount

In the introduction, we already mentioned just how vital the smartphones are for our day-to-day interactions. Because of this, getting a smartphone mount is one of the first things you need to do, provided that your car doesn’t already have one. First of all, this can help your GPS navigation immensely, provided that your vehicle doesn’t already have one installed. It also reduces the distraction and gives you an option of playing the music off your phone hands-free.

USB car charger

Another thing you might want to install is the USB car charger. What good is your phone (even with a great smartphone mount) if its battery gets drained during your commute? Remember, displaying GPS and playing music simultaneously is quite power-intensive, yet it is the way in which most drivers roll nowadays. Luckily, with the right USB car charger, this is not an issue you will have to lose your sleep over.

Dash cam

In Russia, there’s a saying that it is wiser to jump into a car without your pants on than to do so without an installed dash cam. You see, in the case of an accident, you need a hard proof that it wasn’t your fault so that you can protect yourself from any legal consequences. Apart from this, you also get a chance to make a time-lapse or even a compilation of some of your most interesting commutes. In other words, this multi-purpose device is more than handy to have in your car’s high-tech arsenal.

Car stereo

Just having a radio inside of your car is hardly enough to get the most out of your driving experience. What you need in order to make your daily commutes or even road trips completely memorable is something as powerful as a high-end Strathfield Car Radios car audio system. From that point on, all you have to do is make the right playlist (or several in case you have different themes) and enjoy the ride.

Head-up display

Finally, for those most tech-savvy of drivers, a head-up display is one of the coolest gadgets you can ever enhance your car with. First of all, it raises the overall safety of the road, seeing as how it displays all the vital information on your car’s windshield and therefore eliminates your need to look away from the road. Apart from this, it heavily flirts with the notion of AR (augmented reality), which could make even your old car feel quite futuristic. Needless to say, this is one of those items that seem unnecessary at first, yet just a few drives later you may not be able to remember what your life was like before you got them.

Conclusion

At the end of the day, most of these equipment pieces (if not all of them) are something you could easily live without. However, due to the fact that most of them are quite frugal, as well as that they are simple to install, integrate and use, there isn’t a single reason why you should avoid them, to begin with. Keep in mind that by upgrading your car in this way, you are upgrading your entire future driving experience.
