Driving is such an amazing experience for people. For some it’s a big step to independence, opening so many doors for them. It’s such a big luxury that allows people to travel, see friends, find new jobs, etc. However, for other people driving can be such a chore, especially if you have an older car that isn’t up to date with certain modern aspects that can make driving easier. Even if you have a suped up car that has every new gadget, it wouldn’t hurt to become friendly with some cool car accessories. Here is a list of some of the most popular, latest, and helpful car accessories that can make driving easier and more convenient.

However we know how dangerous it is to text and drive, we can’t hold a phone in one hand and drive with the other. That is a disaster waiting to happen. So these handy smart phone mounts that can fit most smart phones sit on your dashboard and open wide to hold your phone horizontally as you drive. Just set up a gps app before setting your phone up in the mount, and the rest is easy (hand-free) sailing or driving.
