There was a time when maximum speed and engine power were the main things that drivers would look at before purchasing a new vehicle. However, today, in the age of technology, when amazing devices fit in the palm of our hands, drivers are also looking for amazing tech in their cars. Manufacturers were quick to pick up on this demand and now the best cars in the world are equipped with state of the art tech features. They might have seemed Sci-Fi a few years ago, but now all of the things below have become almost mainstream.
Remember when you had stop the car on the side of the road to look at the map because you got lost? Fortunately, this is now a thing of the past. Thanks to the innovations in navigation systems, vehicles such as the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder have GPS on board, so you always know where you’re going. Also, you don’t have to use your smartphone and pay extra charges!
Having three or four gadgets with you doesn’t help you too much on the road if they aren’t all connected to each other, so car manufacturers have figured out a way to do this. The innovation is beneficial for two reasons: on the one hand, you can control multiple devices from the same controls, which reduces the risk of road accidents. On the other hand, you don’t have to keep all your devices near you, so the user experience is more comfortable. For example, you can sync your phone to the dashboard, so when you get an incoming call, you can simply answer from your dashboard and the caller will automatically go on speaker phone.
