Whether you use these gadgets for an upcoming road trip, a staycation in your home state or just to make the morning commute a little more comfortable (and safe), here are three of our favorite travel gadgets for your car.
1. Car MD. Your “check engine” light comes on. If only you could wave a magic wand and know what was wrong, without having to dish out a bunch of money for a mechanic’s opinion. Ta-da! Here’s your wand.
Car MD can identify the trouble code in your car and direct you to a website, where you can read about it in easy-to-understand terms and then decide on a solution. Use it to help you buy a used car with confidence, too.
