If you’re a casual driver, a consistent commuter, or an all-out car enthusiast, there is a range of gadgets available that can optimise your time on the road.

Whether you want to keep passengers entertained on a long trip, clear your car of clutter, or keep track of its location when it’s not in use, we’ve got you covered with a round up some of the best car gadgets that will help you get the most out of your vehicle.

The best car gadgets in 2022

Amazon Echo Auto

If Alexa has become a fixed feature in your home, you may be pleased to know you can now take the virtual assistant on the road. Simply connect Echo Auto to the Alexa app on your phone as well as your car speakers (via auxiliary input jack or Bluetooth) and you’ll be able to make your usual commands on the go.

Whether you want to request a song, stream an audiobook, set reminders or check petrol prices, you can do so thanks to the eight microphones and far-field technology which are designed to hear you over music, air conditioning and general road noise.

To protect your privacy, you can press the microphone off button at any time which will electronically disconnect the voice activation. Just make sure your car is compatible, as not all are – you can find a full list here.

Disklabs Key Shield Faraday bag

Protect your car key from modern thieves with this Disklabs Key Shield Faraday bag which should stop your key’s signal from being picked up and copied, and ultimately used to seamlessly swipe your vehicle.

Simply place your keys inside the small Faraday bag when you’re not using them, and it should block all wireless signals including WiFi, Bluetooth, Radio and GPS.

Ticarve car cleaning putty

With their claims that it can clean 97 per cent of dirt and crumbs from awkward crevices, the car cleaning putty is designed to get into tricky spots where dust can gather in your car. Simply knead the cleaning gel into a ball and press it slowly into the car vents and other difficult to reach gaps, and when you pull it out the dirt should come with it.

Made from high-tech cleaning gel material, it’s skin friendly, non-sticky, and has a lavender fragrance. It’s reusable up to the point where the gel starts to darken in colour.

Shark handvac 2.0 handheld vacuum

Crumbs, dirt, sand and all of the tiny grains that find their way into your car can be a real pain, but instead of awkwardly sweeping them out with your hand, or dangling wires out of the window for hoover extension cords, a handheld vacuum can be a great alternative.

This handheld vacuum from Shark can be charged up and kept in your car, ready for any accidents, or just to keep your car constantly clean.

It has a 15-minute run time, and offers a powerful suction between two different modes. Plus, it is small and lightweight so it won’t take up too much space.
