These days, car ownership and the latest technology go hand in hand. Not only are most vehicles fitted with a wide range of advanced features from parking sensors to autopilot, but there are also a wide range of apps and services that car owners can access on their phones and tablets which will make the driving experience even easier and far more enjoyable.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the apps and services that every car owner should know about…
It’s surprising how few car owners know about Waze, which is probably the best navigation app on the market. Why is it better than the GPS you can find on your phone or built into your vehicle? Because it relies on its users to provide accurate and up to date information in real-time, which means, as well as offering a very accurate route, whether there’s lots of traffic or a police presence coming up ahead, you will be one of the first to know about in when you’re using Waze. It can even tell you which routes will use the least fuel – it really is that simple.
Car Number Plate Maker
The Car Number Plate Maker, as you might expect, is a simple online service that enables you to very quickly and efficiently design and order your own custom number plates at the touch of a button. If you want your car to stand out from the crowd, check it out and you won’t be disappointed.
The FIXD app works in conjunction with a FIXD Sensor to very quickly and efficiently work out exactly what those lights on the dashboard mean. If you’re forever plagued with lights coming on and being totally clueless as to what they mean, FIXD will be your new best friend, quickly identifying the issue and how serious it is so you can take the appropriate action. It’s not the cheapest of apps, but it will help to keep you safe and teach you a thing or two about your car, which is why it is definitely worth the investment.
If you’re a fan of the humble road trip., then you need Roadtrippers.
