3 Car Essentials for Your Holiday


The summer season is fast approaching, and I’m sure you have your holiday planned. Although you are starting to get excited, anyone travelling by car to their destination must be dreading the long, boring journey there. However, at Car Audio Centre, we aim to make your journey as pleasant as possible.  Here are our recommendations for the top 3 car accessories you will need for your summer holiday:

A Sat Nav

Avoid driving around in circles and trying to ask for directions in a foreign language by purchasing a sat nav to help you find your way around. At Car Audio Centre, we have an extensive range of sat navs: fixed sat navs which can be built into your car and come with a variety of features, or cheaper portable sat navs which allow flexibility.

For example this Clarion Satellite Navigation System has maps covering Europe making it perfect for holidays. It can also be used to play CDs and DVDs, and is compatibile with iPods and a variety of mobile phones.

An iPod Cable

Unless you want to spend your journeys listening to foreign radio stations, an iPod cable is an absolute necessity. Be sure to download your favourite artist’s latest album and create some good playlists before you go, and long journeys will become much more bearable. A good option is this affordable Alpine iPod/ iPhone Cable:
