Everyone loves ‘teching’ out their cars! There are loads of new developments coming to cars which are really pushing the limits of car technology. With the recent CES event and Detroit Auto Show, the world has been able to see what car tech developers are working on…
From revolutionary exhaust systems to the use of mobile apps for their configuration, all the way through to revolutionary ways of looking at vehicle basics, this post is going to be looking at some of the coolest tech for your cars.
One of our first tech items is a bit of a personal plug. However, that doesn’t make it any less of a brilliant product. For those who haven’t heard of it before, Armytrix is an exhaust system that combines a mobile app with the exhaust system to give you an amazing final product that incorporates technology and industry leading engineering.
Most people would be taken aback by the amount of customisation you get. To start with, you have full access to specific metrics on the system. This gives you the opportunity to see readings like temperatures, sound levels and even access to backed up data logs. The app gives you access to an array of features that would otherwise be inaccessible.
This level of control and analysis is unique in an exhaust system and is something revolutionary. If you want the extra performance and the benefit of utilising modern technology then this is the product for you. You can check out the Armytrix system here if you’re interested.
When we tell you that the next tech product will allow to use your phone whilst you are driving, you will probably be sceptical as to what we mean. Well, it’s going to take some explaining but the Navdy is a smart little gadget that allows you to interact with your smartphone whilst keeping you eyes on the road.
It works by connecting to your device via bluetooth, and when you’re ready, simply turn on the heads up display unit and you’re good to go. You now have a projected screen on your vehicle’s dashboard showing you basic information from your phone, such as incoming calls and navigation.
This neat piece of kit works so well that it actually looks like the information is being displayed right on the road in front of you. If you want to know more about Navdy you can check it out here.
Dash cams have become more of a staple for cars to have nowadays. People are increasingly relying on them for their own safety and source of evidence should they be involved in a crash.
Nowadays, dash cams can do much more – not only can they record what is front of your vehicle, but they can also store data such as your location and the speed at which you are travelling.
All of this information allows you to have a detailed account of everything that happens while you are in your vehicle. The more that people use dash cams, the safer the roads get. If you want a more informed analysis of all the dash cams on the market then check out this article.
As cars have become more and more computerised, there is the increased opportunity for you to get into tuning and engine monitoring. And due to it’s mass availability, this sort of technology can be obtained for as little as £20.
The sort of data you can get from your car in this day and age can be invaluable – you can get your hands on data such as engine temperature and specific diagnostic readings that you wouldn’t normally be able to find on the default display. On the other hand, tuning an engine can result in expensive issues if you are not a professional who understands what you are doing.
So there it is, that’s our pick for the best customisation options in 2017. We recommend you do some looking around as there’s a range of products out there to choose from that suit almost anyone’s skill level and budget.
Let us know in the comments if you have any of the customisations we mentioned we would love to hear from you.
