Aviva Car Insurance

A lot of us spend a large portion of our time behind the wheel. Thankfully, there are lots of options to upgrade and add to your car to enhance your experience on the road by making it safer, convenient, and much more enjoyable.

We’ve picked some of the best gadgets and accessories we think will be popular in 2019! All of the gadgets we’ve chosen are available on Amazon for purchase.

Reversing camera

Car Gadget Must Haves for 2019 Article

By far the most valuable use for a car gadget is to increase the safety of you, your passengers and the pedestrians and drivers around you. It doesn’t make a difference if you’ve been driving for decades; reversing safely takes a lot of concentration. Make it easier for yourself with a reversing camera, giving you a full view of the area behind your car.

Store a supply of snacks, colouring books and toys in the boot to keep them entertained no matter where you end up! This also doubles up to keep your shopping safe and upright on the journey home.

Head-up display

Some of the head-up displays (HUDs) available fall on the more expensive side, but when offering extra safety, the cost is well worth it. When driving, you need to have your phone away at all times to be sure you don’t get distracted. With a HUD, you can connect your navigation or maps system from your smartphone and mount it safely in your eyeline, so you never have to look away from the road.

These gadgets are all about making your driving experience more convenient, and here at Aviva, we’re all about taking the hassle out of car insurance.
