Gaming: A custom-installed gaming system such as Microsoft Xbox or Sony PlayStation 2 allows kids to bond over games like “Shrek 2: The Game” or “Spiderman.” Wireless headphones make for a peaceful and safe ride for the driver and other passengers.
Music: Sing along to XM or Sirius satellite radio with hundreds of channels of music, sports, talk and traffic/weather reports. Summer favorites sound even better in digital quality sound, and the lack of commercials is a treat for weary travelers.
Throw out the map!
A portable or professionally installed GPS (global positioning system) makes it easy to find a desired destination using simple electronic road map displays and spoken, step-by-step instructions. Furthermore, using new real-time 24-hour traffic reports, it is easy to safely re-route the summer caravan to avoid road construction or a tie-up.
Keep your eyes on the road!
New technological advances help ensure safer road trips. The AudioVox rear-view “Babycam” gives drivers a view of backseat activities or behind-the-car obstacles, all without taking their eyes off the road. Also, Bluetooth technology allows drivers to answer cell phones hands-free through the car’s audio system.
