Further, a training like this makes it easier to anticipate dangerous situations and how to handle them when being under pressure in the car.

GPS Navigation System

Since there are holidays around Christmas and you probably are going on a bigger trip you’d like to have a good GPS navigation system that leads you to the destination of your choice.

What distinguishes a cheap from an expensive navigation system are the features it offers. Many cheap ones don’t offer congestion warnings while a surcharge makes it able to connect a smartphone via Bluetooth, it is easier to get more recent card material and update the navigation system or it is possible to add cards you can download online for example for different countries. Another difference is if the device can be connected to your board computer. In this case directions are given via the radio. That means you can’t get distracted by music or news since the navigation will always turn down the volume in order to make sure you get the right directions.

Price: From $70

Purchase: Ebay, Electronic Stores or any online store


A Set Of New Tyres

Most drivers care about the carcass or the engine of their car. But what literally drives the car forward are tyres. Not only depends the car performance like fuel consumption on the tyres’ quality and condition, also important factors as road safety are influenced by the choice of tyres. The legal minimum tread depth is 1.5mm but it is recommended to change tyres when they reach a level of 3mm.

Most people hate changing tyres because of the complicated process. But nowadays it is easier than ever. Just search for an online distributor like Tyroola. There you can search for the right tyre. After the purchase your tyres will be delivered to a fitting station nearby. You only need to leave the house to get the tyres fitted.

Tyres will be both: an unconventional but also very useful gift that makes the receiver think about you every time the person uses the car.

Price: From $200$
