As the motor car advances, so does its ability to show off and possess some of the most exciting gadgets available. Here’s a list of the top 5 must-have gadgets for your car whether you drive a Ford KA or a Ferrari 458 Italia.
Gadget fans and Apple go hand-in-hand. They’re a team like Tango and Cash, the A-Team and Arnie and his wife oops. With the modern world’s obsession for needing to know if Justin Bieber is alive or not, it then becomes necessary to have an iPad in your car for those celebrity-fuelled moments.
With thousands of apps, games and that ridiculously clear screen, the iPad will keep your attention for the inevitable hours of traffic jams that lie ahead.
For the family-man who loves his kids but would rather not hear them talk while on the road, there’s the HTC Desire. Sure, it may not be as celebrated as Apple’s iPhone, but it does come with one feature that is so gadgety and handy that you’ll thank HTC and Google forever.
It’s called WiFi Hotspot’ and it effectively allows your kids to connect to your phone’s mobile internet connection via their laptop. So what does that actually mean? Well, it means the kids can browse the internet on their computers while you drive without having to listen to Daaaaaadâ€¦.
Since many governments introduced new laws that ban us from using our mobiles while driving, the need to own a Bluetooth device has become paramount. With that being said, which is best? You can’t go wrong with a Parrot system; it’s trusted, well-loved and, above all, works fantastically well.
It may not be cool, but it could just save you a lot of money in fines and points.
So, you’ve served your biological purpose, you’ve spread your seed and it’s flourished and you’ve reproduced congratulations. Give it a few years, though, and you’ll wish you’d have never of bothered. Why? Because kids and cars don’t mix, no matter how expensive it is.
Kids, typically, become easily bored and irritated, so the best gadget you can buy to keep them amused is TV headrests. Sure, they aren’t cheap, but they will keep the kids entertained for hours and best of all, they come with headphones. Praise the Lord!
Ok, this one is a bit of a pipedream because you can only get this gadget on a Ferrari, but it’s that good, and had to be included. The famous Manettino switch on almost all modern Ferraris has become the ultimate car gadget thanks to its design, looks and, above all, what it delivers.
The Manettino allows the driver to choose how the Ferrari performs; whether they want a smooth country drive or a raw, unplugged, pedal-to-the-metal sprint on a race track. Ok, so it’s going to cost you over £100,000 to get one, but if you truly love gadgets and cars, you’ll find the money.
