Being caught off by the flat tire and dead battery is not just only stressful, but can also be dangerous at times.
Luckily, there are so many gadgets available in the market that can help you during breakdowns and also help you with little issues while traveling in the car.
We felt our responsibility to guide you through the best gadgets for your car we believe you must consider buying.
Dash cam or dashboard camera should be on top of your priority list.
A dash cam can save you from fraudulent accident cases, an accident where the other party is at fault or any incident due to which you could face problems claiming your insurances.
A dash cam is a camera (HD preferred) mounted on the front dashboard of the car from where it records the complete journey, covering up to 170 degrees of view at a time. The footage can be used to memorize journey and can also be used as a proof in the situations where someone tries to blame you for the accident.
Every one of us uses the GPS in our smartphones to get directions, and while doing that holding the smartphone in our hand can be bit risky.

Not just for the purpose of route tracking, with the phone mounted in front of you, you can also keep a track on who is calling you and if you consider that call important for picking up or not.

There is a misconception among users that car chargers are slow mobile chargers, which is completely vague, modern-day chargers come up to capacity of 2.8 amp, making them fast chargers as your regular charger. Also, some chargers come with multiple USB ports, so that you can charge multiple phones at a time
