Five things you can’t live without.
Traveling by car - it is always bright emotions and unforgettable impressions. If you want to plunge into the road romance, and at the same time to visit unfamiliar places, there is no better way to see new cities (and maybe countries).
When documents and money have already been collected and put aside, and the car has been checked for all possible malfunctions, it is the turn to make a list of road gadgets and other useful things that will be useful during the trip.
An indispensable device for orientation in unfamiliar areas - GPS-navigator. Basic requirements for the gadget:
- Simple, intuitive interface.
- Highly detailed maps and stable work in the process of movement.
- The volume of at least 2GB and support for additional memory cards.
- Ergonomic design, comfortable fit.
To acquire a high-quality and accurate GPS navigator, which will easily allow you to navigate in Russian and foreign cities, is to ensure a safe and comfortable journey.However, if you could not find a suitable navigator, then as an alternative you can use smartphones and tablet computers with built-in GPS modules.
Radar detector or antiradar
What could be more useful when driving on an unfamiliar road than a device that will save the driver from the penalty for speeding?
The radar detector catches radio waves from the radar and a sound signal prompts the driver when to slow down. An antiradar is a device that not only captures the data of the police radar, but also distorts them (as a result, the radar either indicates a speed lower than that at which the driver moves, or an error is issued). Radar detectors are officially banned in Russia and in many other countries of the world. At the same time, there is often confusion among motorists: the concepts of “anti-radar” and “radar detector” are often equated, meaning an innocuous device for fixing radio waves.
