The Top 5 Must Haves for a Road Trip

Personal Massager

Who doesn’t love a good ol’ fashioned road trip? The answer is no one. Even if someone doesn’t love a road trip, the answer is still no one. Anyways, we decided to bring you the top 5 must haves for your next road trip.

Emergency Equipment

Seriously, this entire movie is based off getting a flat tire. Sure, they got a flat tire in a former nuclear test zone but so what? Don't let it happen to you!

1. Emergency Equipment

The last thing you want to happen on your road trip is get a flat tire or be otherwise stranded on the highway. I mean, how many slasher horror movies are based around this concept? I’ve seen plenty of horror movies about stranded people and none of them end well, mostly because not many of them are actually movies… But whatever, you get the point. Luckily for you, we carry Lifeline Emergency Equipment. We’ve got tire gauges so you can find the leaking tire BEFORE you leave on your trip and we’ve got an air compressor for tires just in case that tire explodes on the road anyways. And we’ve got a nice warm blanket in case you stuck somewhere cold and we EVEN have orange road triangles so that people don’t crash into your stranded vehicle. Wow, are we prepared or what?


We couldn’t leave this one out, it’s got “road trip” right in the name. Yes, CB radios have been around for a long long time but they’ll never go out of style. If you don’t believe me, check out the CB and 2-Way Radios – Why the Technology of the 50’s is Still Relevant Today article. You’d be surprised to find that CB radios are actually far more convenient than a Smartphone for keeping in touch with your fellow road trippers in other vehicles. Just one touch of a button and you can send and receive messages. Texting? Too slow. Phone call? Gotta wait while it rings. CB Radio? Just press a button on your HHROADTRIP, talk and the other people can magically hear you instantly! Sometimes old school is better!

MAD11 Android Computer3. The MAD11

The MAD11 is a genius new device that basically turns any monitor in your vehicle into an android computer. There’s a video on the product page you check out and see it in action. But on a road trip, entertainment is key so this way you can keep yourself and your friends occupied with rousing games of Angry Birds and Temple Run, or you watch movies with Netflix or Hulu. Just remember to keep your eyes on the road.

4. Radar Detector

If you’re gonna be cruisin’ down the open road you’re gonna want a radar detector. Sometimes you just realize how fast you’re going, it’s OK, we’ve all been there. But if you’re on a long trip, maybe out of state and in places you aren’t familiar with, the last thing you want is a speeding ticket. But the convenience doesn’t stop there: some of the fancier radar detectors like the Cobra iRad200 use GPS to link up to the Aura redlight and speed camera database to warn you if you’re approaching either of these road nuisances. Like I said, perfect for areas you’re unfamiliar with.

Personal Massager

Release that driving tension!

5. The Personal Massager

Last but not least, the personal massager. Hey, driving can cause some tension and soreness so why not vibrate it away with the Limitless Creations PM1PR MagicTouch Personal Massager? It even comes in pink and it’s waterproof too! Check out the reviews on it, we’ve left some satisfied customers.

So there you have it, the top 5 must haves for your next road trip. Get them all right here at Sonic Electronix!
