Getting stuck with a dead car battery or being caught off guard by a flat tire is not only stressful, it’s potentially dangerous.
Fortunately, there are dedicated gadgets on the market today that can help you be better prepared for whatever the road throws at you.
So without further ado, here are 10 car gadgets that will not only enhance your overall driving experience, but will also help you be ready for the unexpected.
1. Super Powerful Anti-slip Sticky Gel Pads
These reusable Anti-slip Sticky Gel Pads are safe to use on ALL surfaces and can stick pretty much anything to anywhere in your car.
They are thin, yet durable which makes them great for sticking onto unusual or irregular shapes. They come in two useful shapes and can be cut to any size for your unique requirements, providing a safe holding solution for your devices on your dashboard.
They are waterproof and easy to clean and work like magic!
2. Car Rearview Mirror Full HD Camera
Have you ever been in a car accident? And even though it wasn’t your fault, you still got charged? If not, you better prepare…
There’s a reason why so many people keep dash-cams in their car now. But truth is, those aren’t perfect because they only show you one view — the front.
To capture all evidence, you’re going to need a recording of not just the front, but the back too. And with this one rearview mirror camera, you can do both…
One camera is facing forward and is built-into the detachable rearview mirror. A second camera (optional) can be mounted at the rear of your car. The 4.3 inch LCD screen displays your recordings on the rearview mirror, making parking a breeze.
All it takes is a few buttons to quickly navigate from clearly viewing the front camera, to viewing the back camera.
3. Hands-Free Car Wireless Bluetooth Transmitter
Put the phone down… You’re in the car. You might get caught and have to pay a hefty fine. Or worse, get in an accident because you were holding a phone in one hand while driving recklessly with the other.
But what if you get a call that’s an emergency? A call from someone who needs your help at once… Do you just ignore it?
No! Not when you get this…
This Bluetooth device, when plugged into your car lighter socket, allows you to answer all incoming calls with just a push of a button. You’ll be able to hear them loud and clear on your car speakers, while they hear you by talking into the built-in mic. Simply adjust the frequency of your Bluetooth to match the same as your car’s, and you’re ready to go!
But that’s not all…
This luxuriously designed instrument also allows you to play music from your phone (with its included AUX cord), directly onto your car’s amazing sound system. And with an additional USB port, you can quickly charge any compatible device!
4. Mini Car DVR Dash Camera
Dashcams can be used to not only shoot a memorable drive, but can also come in handy if you get into an accident.
The forward facing camera won’t protect you physically, but the footage it captures can be used to prove who is responsible for an car crash.
The Mini Car DVR Dash Camera is the ultimate personal security camera for your car. It attaches easily and automatically records both audio and video of everything that happens on your car journey. Great for recording road trips or accidents.
5. Super Capacity Multi-Functional Car Survival Kit
Drive a car? It might be more dangerous than you think — and this isn’t just about car accidents…
But real-life emergencies.
Whether that be your car breaking down and you can’t start it, or you get lost in the wilderness with your gas on empty (or even when your phone dies), these can all be dangerous. Especially if you’re not prepared and have no idea what to do.
Luckily, in each of these situations (and more), you can be ready at anytime with just this one huge power bank.
Not only does this have 4 built-in USB ports for bringing your phones and laptops back to life, but with an incredible battery capacity of 16,000mah, you can jumpstart your car too! Simply by using this power bank and its included jumper cables, you’ll never be stuck in the middle of the road again.
But that’s not all! With a built-in hammer and blade for emergency escapes, a powerful flashlight for vision and signaling, and a compass for direction, think of this power bank as your complete car survival kit.
6. Ultimate Car GPS Tracker
Do you let your spouse or kids drive your car? Are you ever worried or curious about where they take it? Then this GPS tracker will show you everything you need to know (and more)…
Only 3.5 inches in length and weighing just 6 ounces, once magnetically attached to any car, this little tracker can show you real-time location, movement, and history routes. You can even set up a geofence and be notified when your vehicle goes outside of a specific area.
But this isn’t only useful for tracking a car…
With its compact size, this is also perfect for safely placing in your child’s backpack to make sure they get back from school safely. As well as for an ill parent to keep in their pocket or belt so they don’t wander too far away from their home.
This is all possible by easily creating a personal account on their mobile app (TKSTAR GPS) through your phone, or by visiting their website (www.mytkstar.net) on your computer! After you order and receive your tracker, there’ll be an IMEI number on the back of the cover for you to use and log in with the password.
7. Car Parking System
Admit it… Parking is tough (and can be dangerous). Especially when you’re squeezing in between two cars. Or when there’s a bunch of people walking nearby.
It’s easy to cause a silly collision or accident even if you’re great, average, or horrible at parking. It only takes one tiny mistake.
Don’t take the chance!
Use this backup parking sensor to get a clear signal of how close your car is to the obstacle behind you, whether it’s another car, person, or wall!
With 4 weatherproof ultrasonic parking sensors — easily installed to the rear bumper of your car — and an LED display box attached to your dashboard, this can detect anything within 2.5 meters (8.2 feet) away! Simply plug in all the wires to the main control box and you’re set to go.
8. Portable Car Vacuum Cleaner
When’s the last time you checked how dirty your car was? Just picture it now. What do you see?
Crumbs all over the floor and in the cup holders, a sheet of dust covering your dashboard, a few hairs stuck to the headrests… And what’s that under your seat? A french fry from a few weeks ago?
You have a lot of cleaning to do! But with this powerful, handheld vacuum cleaner, you can clear up all the dirt and debris inside your car (without having to touch it with your bare hands)!
Just plug this into your car lighter outlet and switch it on. No matter how dirty your car is, nothing stands a chance against the incredible suction of this vacuum. Whether it be small crumbs or particles, sticky substances, or even liquids, just hover this thing over it and it’ll get sucked right up and through the washable HEPA filter.
9. Touch Screen Multimedia Player
Does your car need a new radio system? Is yours old, out-dated, and almost near broken? Then here’s a universal player that gives you everything you might need in one device…
In a sleek all-black design, this multimedia player is both multi-functional and easy to control. With a 440×240 full color resolution on a 7-inch TFT touchscreen, you can easily navigate between different menus by tapping its onscreen buttons.
In seconds, you can go from listening to your favorite songs on your phone (via Bluetooth/AUX) or songs downloaded on a USB/TF storage, to tuning into different FM radio stations, to even watching your favorite movie on its video player!
But this is just the beginning…
This amazing device also allows you to sync your phone to it for hands-free calling! And to add a bit of fancy, you can change the button lights to your favorite color or to match the inside of your car!
10. Car Electric Water Heater
Don’t you hate when your coffee or tea gets cold in the car? Especially when you’re trying to stay awake?
Or when you go camping or on a long road trip but there is nowhere near to get a decent cup of tea? But what if you were able to make your own hot beverage at all times, no matter how cold it is?
Well, with this travel kettle you can!
It’s custom design fits into most vehicle cup holders. With the built-in safety lid, your drink won’t spill.
