Top 5 Car Gadgets

With the technological world constantly advancing and an app for just about every purpose possible, its no surprise to see the automotive industry head in the same direction. Gadgets are cool, and often people are at an end when stuck in a traffic jam or on the road without the use of their phone. Built in technology in cars has advanced rapidly in the last few years, with companies constantly outdoing each other on the latest gadget. Here are 5 of the top gadgets you can buy separately to enhance your driving experience.

Amazon Echo Auto

Hands free has been round a while and is used by millions of people across the world every year. However, Amazon Echo Auto takes this one further, giving you the power of an Alexa device at your… hands free fingertips? Amazon’s Echo Auto has been a mainstay in the US for years and has proven really successful. It’s now available in the UK and EU at long last, letting you take advantage of Alexa’s help on the go.

It makes controlling the radio, setting reminders or timers and doing anything else you’d use Alexa for an at home so simple when on the road. Amazon Echo Auto allows you to be productive when stuck in traffic – something that previously seemed fairly impossible for many.

Anker Roav SmartCharge T1

Anker offers another way of being hands-free on the road. This is a quirky alternative to the Amazon Alexa. It’s got some different little tricks up its sleeve, too, in the form of a radio transmission system that your car can interpret – this means that you can use it to beam audio from your phone, including phone calls, and super impressively, this now doesn’t require any ports at all.

Got an older car? No worries, this goes straight into your cigarette lighter, giving almost anyone the ability to enhance their drive.

arsvitaBluetooth Cassette adapter

Remember tape decks? How cool were they! Even though cars are now way past producing these as a norm, much like the return if vinyl, cassettes are now a nostalgia-filled item for many with many people now choosing a classic car with a cassette player still present. That’s where a superb adapter like this one from Arsvita comes in – plug it into your deck and just like that you’ll have a Bluetooth device to connect to, meaning if you’re not in the mood for something on cassette on your commute, you can listen to the latest tracks from your mobile, too.

Fobo Tire Plus

Properly inflated tires wear more evenly, thus increasing the lifespan of your rubber as well as fuel efficiency. Pumping up your tires to a perfect ratio using a handheld pressure gauge to ensure your tires are properly inflated, however, is often too long or too stressful for many. The Fobo Tire Plus system uses a series of Bluetooth gauges that relay this information directly to your smartphone and make that process much easier. Fobo will alert you when your tire pressure is getting too low directly on your phone. The app even provides a straightforward tutorial, making installation and implementation a complete walk in the park.


Most of us simply shudder at the thought of starting our workday without a cup of coffee. It’s easy to forget to set our favourite portable coffee grinder, or, if we’re running behind, we may simply lack the time to make something up in your flask or swing through the coffee shop on the way to work. Designed for people who often buy unnecessary, yet effective gadgets — the Nanopresso is a coffee maker tailor-made for those of us who are constantly on the road. It doesn’t need power to work, and even better, it’s compatible with Nespresso capsules!
