Car Accessories That Are Actually Useful

Nifty car gadgets are not all scams. In fact, some of them are very helpful and can give you a different perspective on driving. We've compiled a list of practical car accessories that every driver needs. 


Car Mount

A car mount is essential if you depend on navigation apps on an everyday basis. You should get one with no installation required. Instead, it fastens to your phone with a strong magnet or automatic-sensor clasps. You can conveniently view Google Maps, Maps, or Waze by clipping one of these gadgets to your air vent. The best part is that you can adjust the angle to fit your line of vision.


Hand-Held Car Vacuum

Everyone should invest in a portable and hand-held car vacuum. Some can even plug into your cigarette lighter to give you extra cleaning power. You don't have to worry about it dying on you every few minutes. When searching for the perfect vacuum, look for one with several interchangeable tools that can help you reach in the nooks and crannies. 


Cleaning Gel

At a glance, the product might look like the slime that you'd catch your kids playing with. However, cleaning gel is intended explicitly for detailing. This gel will remove all the crumbs and dust in the nooks of your car. All you have to do is squish it into your vents, cup holders, door handles, or media console, and it'll pick up all the gunk that you can't get with your vacuum.


Bluetooth Key Finder

If you are the clumsy type and constantly have to look for your keys, these compact attachable fobs are made for you. This tiny, tech-savvy gadget attaches to your keys and connects to your mobile device so that you can locate them anywhere. Some of today's leading brands are Tile and Apple Airtag.


Car Trash Can

To keep your car tidy, you should keep a garbage can for your vehicle. No- we aren't talking about the tall ones that have in your rooms at home. There are trash cans specially made for vehicle use. Most of them are waterproof and hang from the door, back seat, or behind the center console. They are especially beneficial for those individuals who have longer commutes or have messy children.


These items are must-haves if you want a clean and efficient driving experience. If your car needs auto repair or maintenance, take it to Gil's Garage Inc. Our certified mechanics will service your vehicle and keep it in tip-top shape. Give us a call or visit us today.
