Car health monitor

It may sound too technical, but an Electronic Controlled System (ECS) works by adopting your car’s suspension to driving conditions.

In other words, an ECS adjusts the feel of your car’s suspension and height to cater to changing road conditions.

There are different types of ECS, but you can opt for an adaptive electronic suspension.

It can monitor the road and change your car’s height to improve performance and driving experience.

You can also opt for a coil-over suspension to improve your handling and lower your car for a more sporty look.

Coilovers come in different types, and the right one will depend on your car model.

For example, if you drive a Corvette, you can search online to find the right Corvette coil-overs for your car. 

Fuel-saving gadgets

You may also want to tackle your car’s fuel efficiency with the right gadget, especially when gas prices appear only to go up.

So many cool gadgets can help you save fuel and improve your car’s performance.

Some of the best options include fuel mixers, solar-powered GPS navigation, solar battery chargers, and eco pedals, to mention a few.

More and more drivers are beginning to care about capturing the activities on the road when driving. And a dashboard will help you do just that.

You can make your family road trip more fun and memorable by recording the events on the road.

You may have a tracking device for your car, but what about your car key? And it’s pretty easy to misplace your keys more than you will your car.

You’ve probably experienced the frustration of searching for your car key for several minutes, losing precious time, and becoming anxious. A simple key tracker can be a life changer.

There are many options, but most only require you to attach a tiny Bluetooth device to your car keys. This way, you can easily locate your keys with the help of your smartphone.
