Road trips can be some of the greatest times of your life! With more sights to see across the country than one may be able to fit into a lifetime, it’s amazing to take the opportunities when you can. When sitting in a car for several hours, it’s always best to make sure you’ve got the best gear to keep you safe and enjoying the ride!
Get to Where You’re Going
While some road trips don’t have a predetermined destination, it’s great to keep yourself from getting lost. A GPS device is a great way to ensure you get to your destination safely. The Pioneer SPH-DA120is a 6.2” in-dash touchscreen GPS device that also features Bluetooth capabilities and even rear camera connectivity. With the Bluetooth capabilities, auxiliary and USB connections, you have multiple options to connect your devices to for streaming music and hands-free calling. The rear camera connectivity allows you to connect a back-up camera to aid in parking, making this a truly awesome device.
When I listen to certain albums after road trips, I can’t help but be taken back to some fond memories, as they were ultimately the soundtrack for the ride. I like to choose my music rather than have a radio station choose it for me, so connecting my smartphone or iPod is my preferred option. While Bluetooth is always a great option if available, a simple auxiliary cable such as the Griffin Technology aux cablewill work perfectly too!
Perhaps you’re not in the mood for some tunes, as you’ve grown tired of the albums on longer car rides. Provided you’ve handed over the keys to let someone else drive, you can stay entertained with a tablet, loaded up with your favorite games and movies. The iSimple Stronghold Headrest Mount for most 7”-10.2” tablets is perfect for mounting tablets to the headrest for an optimal on-the-go view when watching movies. With so many devices, between your tablets and smartphones, you may need another option to charge your devices. Or, you just simply don’t want to run a cable from the dash to the backseat. The Mophie Powerstation XL external battery pack charger is ideal for charging your devices on-the-go. It has 2 USB ports, so you and your friends and family can charge devices at the same time!
