There are all sorts of gadgets out there to turn any car into the car of the future. Cars get messy (especially with kids) but there are a lot of ways to keep it clean and tidy. Finally, there will always be situations that you’d rather not find yourself in. Emergency gear and first aid supplies can be crucial if the worst happens.

Radar Scanner

Let’s all be honest here. Speed limits aren’t designed to be reasonable (at least not highway ones). They’re designed to generate money from tickets. If you want to step out of that system, you do have options. The best option is getting yourself a Radar detector. With a radar detector you’ll have a much better idea of when to take it easy and when to let loose.

If you get into an accident, a dashcam may just be your best friend. This handy little camera will record the view out of your windshield all the time so you’ve got a record if you need it. This small purchase now could save you a lot if someone tries blaming you for something that wasn’t your fault!

Heads-Up Display

Heads-up displays (HUDs) are a growing new field of gadgets that bring your dashboard to your eye level. With a good HUD you won’t need to look down for directions or speed. You can keep your eyes on the road! It’ll help you reduce distraction and stress.

Seat Organizer

If you’ve got kids (or anyone else) in the back set for a long car ride, these are a must have. Seat organizers hang down and give the passenger tons of tidy storage for snacks, toys, electronics, you name it! And keeping these things in the organizer means keeping them off the floor, or anywhere else!

Roof Cargo Carrier

If you’re trying to fit a lot of people, and their things, in a car, it might not be easy. Fortunately, if you’ve got a roof rack, you’ve got options! Roof cargo carriers let you expand your storage space without making it more cramped. They come in soft or hard shells, so you can find the one that fits your needs!

Picnic Blanket

Roll up picnic blankets are just a good thing to have in your car all the time. Most of them are designed with different sides. The top side is soft for sitting on but the bottom is more durable and water-resistant for the ground.
