5 Car Accessories You Must Have
Driving on Singapore roads can sometimes be a dreadful task, but absolutely necessary to get us to places. Thankfully there is one sure way to have a pleasant drive – customizing your car. The best way to customize your car is to use accessories. Car accessories range from phone holders to heads-up displays. Let’s look at some essential car accessories you must have in your car to make driving a pleasure.
Magnetic phone holder
Most of us use our phones’ GPS systems when driving to an unknown place. Unfortunately, smartphones are a huge distraction when behind the wheel. A split-second glance at your phone’s screen and you could end up in a crash. For this exact reason, car mobile phone holders were created. But unlike the regular, bulky phone clips and mounts you find, magnetic phone holders are simple, easy, and save space. One end with a magnet to secure your phone, the other with a clip that latches on to your air-conditioning vents, magnetic phone holders keep your phone within a safe view when behind the wheel. A magnetic phone holder also goes along well with your car charger as it holds your phone in place when charging.
It’s no surprise that blind spots can be detrimental to road safety. We might not be able to see other cars or motorcycles coming out from our blind spots. This creates a hazard, especially when taking a turn or when cornering. Thankfully, we have the option of blind-spot mirrors to reduce this risk. Blind-spot mirrors are convex mirrors that are curved outwards. This curved feature allows for a wider field of view towards oncoming motorist. Simply attach the blind-spot mirrors to your side-view mirrors and watch how much bigger your field of view becomes.
Accidents are sometimes unavoidable. But that doesn’t mean we can’t take precaution. One of the ways we indemnify ourselves when on the road is to use a dashcam. Dashcams, dashboard cameras, or sometimes called car cameras allow you to record your drive from the driver’s perspective. Dashcams are particularly useful when recording people who break the law. When making a police report on a reckless driver, the dashcam footage will come in handy as evidence. Not only that, a dashcam also doubles as a security camera when your car is parked.
Car vacuum cleaner
Driving is great and all, but a dirty car is a sight for sore eyes. Never ever take a date out in a dirty car. The fourth accessory helps you to overcome this messy problem – vacuum cleaners. Not just any vacuum cleaner, but a car vacuum cleaner. Car vacuum cleaners are small but powerful. They mostly come in small sizes and are portable enough to bring in your car.
Choose chargeable vacuum cleaners that are ready to be used in case of a mess made in the car. Bring them in the car everywhere you go. If you’re looking for high-end car vacuum cleaners, look for names like Dyson and Black & Decker.
Heads-up display (HUD)
Let’s step into the future and take a look at the heads-up display. Heads-up displays are gadgets that project your dashboard’s information onto your windscreen. This creates a futuristic driving experience that gives a glimpse into the technology that’s to come. You can even find HUD for your phone. These contraptions show a projection of your smartphone’s monitor and can be accessed via the app.
