Top 3 Gadgets for Truckers

Being a trucker is a lot of hard work so we decided to recommend a few items to make your lives easier while on the road. Here are The 3 Gadgets For Truckers!

bluetooth hands free headset#1 Bluetooth Handsfree Kits

Nothing says convenience like a Bluetooth handsfree kit. Not only is it extremely dangerous to talk on the phone while driving, it’s also illegal in many states including here in California. That’s why we’ve got plenty of Bluetooth headsets to choose from from brands like Motorola, Jaybird, Parrot, Samsung and more. Just them all out here. And we know it’s tempting to answer that text message right after you get it, even if you’re driving, but that’s even worse than than talking on the phone. That’s why we’ve got Bluetooth headsets with the Text-to-Speech function. This handy feature will read your text message aloud to you and allow you to send a message back just by using your voice. This even works for emails as well! So be safe and be responsible, stop talking on the phone while you’re driving and get yourself a Bluetooth headset! Check out the VXI Xpressway, one of our top sellers!

Radar Detector#2 Radar Detectors

Radar Detectors are an absolute must for anyone that spends long hours on the road. It’s always a relief to know where the cops are but that’s not all a radar detector does; the CR85 from Whistler features a Safety Warning System that can decode signals sent from emergency vehicles or hazard crews to warn you of approaching emergency vehicles, obstructions on the road, or road crews. In addition, the Whistler CR series have the exclusive Stay Alert feature to keep you awake. Every 4 hours the radar detector will emit a tone to make sure you’re alert and awake.

GMRS Radio#3 CB and GMRS Radios

The technology might be old but the value is definitely still there. Check out my other article, Why the Technology of the 50’s Is Still Relevant Today, if you don’t believe me. As a trucker, you probably drive through stretches of road that still have never even heard of a cell phone tower—Hence, GMRS and CB Radios. In addition, these radios allow you to contact emergency services and receive weather alerts instantly. With a Smartphone you’d have to dial the number, wait until someone picks up, wait to be directed to the right person blah blah BLAH! CB and GMRS radios get you that information instantly. Boom. Not to mention, YOU SHOULDN’T BE ON THE PHONE WHILE YOU’RE DRIVING ANYWAYS!!! That’s why Bluetooth headsets are #1 on this list! So anyways, yes CB and GMRS radios are still very much useful, even 60 years later.

HIDs  


Vision Extreme 9006-6K-VEIf your dad is getting old like mine, his vision is probably deteriorating so you might want to consider getting him a set of HIDs. They will drastically increase road visibility at night and will increase longevity of his headlights. HIDs produce light that reflects better off of highway signage and critical road postings, meaning he will be less likely to miss an important notice as you’re approaching it.  They come in sizes for almost any car and require minimal installation.

Bluetooth Headsets


BlueAnt T1In today’s modern world there are many laws prohibiting using phones while driving.  In order to alleviate this danger, get your dad a bluetooth headset.  He might appear to be crazy and talking to himself but that comes with the territory of headsets.   We have a huge selection such as the popular BlueAnt T1 headset which features voice control for seamless initiation of phone calls.  Don’t let your dad fall behind in the bluetooth world!

Shavers

Panasonic ESRT51SThat’s right people! We now carry shavers for all kinds of dads.   The Panasonic ESRT51S for instance, is a rechargeable wet or dry shaver that would make your dad look like a million bucks.  It features a 5-stage LCD display which shows battery status, charge indicator, and cleaning reminder.  Give your dad that edge he’s been looking for!

 

Radar Detectors

What dad wouldn’t love to have a radar detector in his car? You can save him lots of money in the long run if you purchase him a radar detector like the K-40 RL100.   K-40 will even pay for a speeding ticket up to a year after it has been purchased with no questions asked!  No longer will he be in fear of getting a speeding ticket!
