Is it time to upgrade your ride? 2019 is just starting, so there’s still time to take advantage of auto tech deals from the end of 2018. If you haven’t tried out these pieces of technology before, then now could be the time to start. Here is some auto tech to keep your eyes peeled for in the new year.
Connecting with Smartphone Apps
You can use your smartphone for almost anything these days. So why not use it to connect with your car or truck? This useful piece of auto tech will allow you to lock the doors and unlock them remotely, especially if those same functions on your key fob stop working. You can also double check fuel levels and decide if you need to get some gas before going into work and make sure that the tire pressure is at appropriate levels in the cold Maryland winter.
You’re probably endlessly grateful for that backup camera you received as a holiday gift. However, there’s another piece of auto tech that takes the backup view to the next level. With the 360-degree camera, you can see all around you. By installing this camera, you can avoid crashes that might happen when you can’t see an obstruction near you, or when another motorist is attempting to merge into your lane and you can’t see them coming. It can also make backing up into your garage, or a parking space in the shopping center where you need to run some errands. Do you have trouble with parallel parking? With this camera on your side, you won’t have that trouble anymore.
Tech to Help Teen Drivers
2019 could be a big year for your family. Namely, this could be when your teenage children start hitting the road. Preventing distracted driving is one of the top goals of many automakers. Whether you have a car or truck, you can equip your vehicle with this technology. That way, you’ll receive speeding alerts. Plus, this tech can shut off the stereo system if seatbelts aren’t engaged. It can also turn the speakers down to prevent full-on blasting of music.
Driving at night can be hazardous. Consider upgrading your vehicle’s headlights. You might not think of headlights as auto tech, but it can keep you safe either way.
