The vast majority of people spend a huge amount of their day in the car. This time should be as comfortable as possible, and our cars should be full of all the gadgets and conveniences that make traveling as enjoyable and painless as possible. The number one way to achieve these goals is to equip your dashboard with the latest technology designed for the modern commuter.
The only problem with gadgets on the dash is that each one seems to require its own individual mounting clip. Clear your dash of multiple mounting systems by purchasing the Universal Exomount. This unit works with nearly any smartphone, and it attaches directly to your windshield. It leaves little trace, if any, on the windshield itself while still providing a strong grip. The axis of rotation is based on a ball design which allows for great maneuverability while making adjustments.
A common annoyance to drivers is a lukewarm drink that only minutes ago was pipping hot or icy cold. The Contigo Autoseal travel mug provides the solution by formulating a container that forms an airtight seal. The tight seal prevents any risk of spilling your beverage. It is stainless steel and vacuum insulated with a total capacity of 83% liquid for its total volume. The real selling point, however, is that it can be opened and sealed with just one hand. The one-touch, clicking mechanism is all that is required to seal in the temperature.
The Griffin iTrip is the best way to form your own personal radio station. Avoid buying multiple converters or upgrading your stereo unit by broadcasting the music directly from your digital device into your FM radio. The digital read out tells you exactly which station your music will be streaming from. The reception is crystal clear. The iTrip provides a beautiful touch by including a 12-Volt charger which plugs directly into the cigarette lighter.
The next gadget tackles the other primary source of headaches for drivers: traffic. The Garmin nuLink 2390 with PhotoLive actually allows you to view live shots of upcoming roadways from traffic cameras. This ability provides the perfect means for avoiding congestion. For unpredictable drives or for navigating your way to open roads in order to hone your skills e.g. for traffic school in Florida, the nuLink lays out your options for a mere $4 a month in subscription fees. This device can also assist in quickly finding the parking space closest to your destination.

I heard about this apps. they are pretty cool. But so far I avoid using any. When I drive I concentrate only on driving. But thanks for the tips!

The Garmin PhotoLive service is really a cool thing, my husband has got it in his SUV and it is really useful if you often drive in traffic jams. It gives you information about the road you are driving, and warns you if some traffic jam is to expected. So you can avoid them using the suggested escape way. Garmin is the best when it’s about car navigation.

Sorry, the ‘only problem’ is having to mount each new device? Distractions aren’t a problem at all, then? I know some cops who might disagree:

I came across this blog post and found this one informative. This cool app gives an amazing experience, as you can listen you favorite songs while driving and also find your way correctly by its direction signs. It also alerts of any expected traffic jam.

I use the Griffin AutoPilot, a Proclip mount and a Cassette adapter for my car and iPhone. I am able to drop my phone into the mount and have all of my audio directed to the stereo.
