Whilst a number of car accessories serve a practical function, they can also provide you with entertainment for lengthy car journeys. There are many driving gadgets on the market, ranging from blind spot detection systems to speed assistance – but what are the best?


Probably one of the most popular and useful of all car devices is GPS . Route planning devices take advantage of GPS technology and can pinpoint your exact location anywhere in the world by using satellites that orbit the Earth.

Gone are the days of having to read maps whilst driving – although it is recommended that you make a rough plan of your journey before departing to combat any potential errors with your sat nav. Here at Avis, our cars can now be booked with a GPS device to help you on your journey – so you can get all the benefits of modern technology with your hire car.

Wi-Fi connectivity

Ever wanted to access your emails or update your social media whilst in your car? Well now you can thanks to our mobile Wi-Fi device. It is an ideal item for businessmen/women who want to keep up to date with work from the comfort of their car and makes business trips a walk in the park.

There are no cables attached to the device and you don’t have to mess around with compatibility software either. This mobile Wi-Fi gadget also allows you to connect to five devices at once – covering everything from your laptop to your smartphone or computer tablet.


For those interested in home comforts, there are plenty of options available. Portable espresso making devices are perfect for those who have a long journey ahead but should not be allowed to act as a distraction to those in control of the vehicle. A great way to entertain children is car DVD players that can be attached to the back of the front passenger’s headrest and transported with ease.

In-car entertainment allows you to listen to your favourite songs whilst on the road as your passenger takes control of how to do this. Whether they opt to put on music using a traditional CD, USB, MP3 in-put or stream tracks from a smartphone, this will help ensure all journeys are as comfortable as they should be.
