Avoid Road Trip Headaches With These Devices

With summer already here, maybe it is time for you to start planning your next adventure: road trip! Here are 4 items which will make that trip easier and pleasant for you by providing some safety, entertainment and piece of mind while you're on the road...

ESS DVD Headrests
These are a great alternative for those portable DVD players. $349 will get you 2 replacement headrest in your choice of color leather. We love the adjustable mounting points and the 7" LCD monitors built in, that looks pretty much, like a custom job rather than an off the shelf equipment. Comes with a wireless remote and 2 AV inputs per monitor. You can plug your SD card and it even has an USB plug for your convenience. Headphone jack and built-in transmitter for wireless headphones.

Garmin nüvi 255WT GPS
For $99, you will be able to navigate along the US and Canada with no problems getting to your destination. We like the free lifetime traffic updates to pick the best route and over 1000 waypoints of interest for easy routing planning. The "where am I" emergency locator is a nice touch for those midnight runs in the middle of nowhere. It even comes with a vehicle mount system, so you will be ready to go in no time. 4.3" screen, automatic re-routing and turn by turn voice prompts are standard.

Cobra CPI 1575 Power Inverter
The Cobra power inverter is an electronic product that has been designed and built to take low-voltage DC (Direct Current) power from your automobile or other low-voltage power supplies and convert it to standard 115 volt AC (Alternating Current) power like the current you have in your home. This conversion process thereby allows you to use many of your household appliances and electronic products in automobiles, RVs, boats, tractors, trucks, and virtually anywhere else. So imagine being able to take your microwave or blender on the road and have the convenience of just plugging them to the AC receptacle included. We love that it has a remote on/off switch and a current overload protection.

Clore Automotive JNC660 1700 Booster Pack
If you can't start your car or truck with this thing… you have bigger problems than a dead battery. This booster pack is one of the most powerful available today. We really appreciate the 1700 peak amps, that's almost double that what other manufacturers have right now. We love that you have a one time replacement for life. If the equipment dies, you will get a free replacement.
