Wants vs. Needs.

The age-old battle.

Some car accessories are just nice to have, while others are a necessity.

Many drivers spend a lot of time in their cars, shuttling kids around to after-school activities and getting to and from work.

If you’re ready to splurge on yourself and really bling your car up, consider these nifty gadgets that will keep you connected.

Car health monitor
This is a Bluetooth-enabled monitor that connects to your car’s systems via a sensor plug.

You can then check your smartphone to gauge how well your car is doing.

It’ll alert you to dangers like your check-engine light (and if that light actually means you should take the car to the dealership) or other maintenance needs.

Car charger
The ultimate hands-free experience often means your smartphone will eventually lose power and need to be charged!

With a rapid car charger that plugs into the car’s lighter, you can quickly power up your phone.

Be sure to choose one that offers the capacity to charge more than one device at a time. Some of the chargers on the market are able to charge up to four devices at one time

Car device mount
There’s nothing worse than hopping into your spouse’s car, only to find that the phone mount doesn’t fit your device.

To stay safe, you need a mount that accommodates truly hands-free driving.

A dashboard- or windshield-mounted phone lets you easily follow directions.

It should also facilitate one-hand motions (so you can mount and unmount in one quick motion without having to use two hands) and be able to rotate 360 degrees to provide maximum viewing capacity.

Safe connection
Stay connected in your vehicle with these handy car accessories.

A health monitor and charger for your car are a must, as is the right mounting device for your phone.
