Many of us spend a lot of time in our cars, so many of us have some of the very latest vehicle gadgets. With these great little devices everyone can enjoy the ride! My car is 9 years old and is my first new car (thanks, Mom and Dad!). So naturally, I was surprised at some of the gadgets available in the newer cars. Why I was just thrilled to get out of my work truck (only vehicle) and find a new luxury waiting for me….why windshield wipers that actually work right! Wow! And movable buckets seats! Room in the rear seat! Power windows and roof! But my absolute favorite is cruise control! Yes, a simple basic thing, makes me happy! I live in the country so I drive a lot of distance drives…..and I use it all the time.
Now why are the Simpsons here?…well, I just thought this might have been one of the first gadgets…ever! Seatbelts. (We didn’t have them when I started driving in the 60’s!)
Talk about personal license plates…these can have any personal message you want…your own private LED billboard! You can tell the person behind you to slow down or put a little more distance between you or you can just wish everyone a nice day. (Here comes trouble!) lol New BLOW rear sensor informs you about obstacles in a distance of 2 meters from your bumper! I like this one! No more backup accidents!
And you may already know about the rain sensing windshield wipers and keyless ignition; heated seats, reverse parking sensors and cameras, electronic crumble zones (keeping constant distance between cars and when it determines there could be a problem…100% braking power), and now the MFC Bluetooth that starts your car, has keyless entry, panic alarm, opening and closing windows and engine diagnostics! Whew!
One last note, remember all those James Bond movies with special effects under water…well, here it is for real!
