Make Driving More Fun With These Cool Car Gadgets

Jan 10, 2022

According to AAA, the average American spends an hour or more in their vehicle each day. With so much time spent behind the wheel, here are a few tools and gadgets to make your car experience more fun.

Gadgets for Your Mobile Device

We might spend an hour behind the wheel of our car, but we log a lot more time on the screens of our mobile devices. If you’re driving, you need a safe and hands-free way to access your phone for navigation or incoming calls.

  • Car Phone Holder – A mount for your phone allows you to view navigation instructions while keeping both hands on the wheel.
  • Magnetic phone mount – If a convenient place for a traditional phone mount isn’t available, try a magnetic one. No matter which one you choose, remember to keep your eyes on the road.
  • Two Port USB Charger – Since you’ll be spending a lot of time behind the wheel, you might as well use it to charge up your devices.
  • Car Seat Gap Filler – This handy little gadget will protect you from losing your phone in the gap between your seat.

Tools For The Front Seat Diner

How often do you scarf down a quick snack as you drive from one location to the other? Regardless of the exact number, here are a few helpful tools for every time your vehicle becomes a makeshift diner.

  • Car tray table – Eat in comfort and reduce the risk of getting sauce stains on your slacks with a car tray table.
  • Trash Can – No littering! Get a trash can for your car so you’ll always have somewhere to toss your to-go containers.
  • Sauce Dip Clip – This one is great for eating chicken nuggets or French fries on the go.

Car Maintenance and Quick Repair Gadgets

These tools are handy for quick car clean-up and small roadside repairs.

  • Car Cleaning Putty – Sometimes a microfiber rag just won’t get into those hard-to-reach places.
  • Sunshade Windshield Cover – The Texas sun can be unforgiving. Getting a sunshade will help you keep your car from becoming a furnace.
  • Portable Car Battery Jump Starter – If you ever leave your lights on, you won’t have to hunt for a good Samaritan as long as you have this handy tool.
