Under the dash of most cars made since 1996, there is an OBD II port (Onboard Diagnostics port). When your car is serviced, a technician plugs in a diagnostic computer to this port and retrieves data about your car and its health, engine, compression, exhaust, oil levels, and more.

Universal Tablet Cup Holder Mount

Bracketron’s tablet mount is a multi-part device that fits into your car’s cup holder. It does a nice job in spite of its complexity. In addition to holding your iPad, there are small compartments underneath for a mobile phone and some pens.

Universal Tablet Headrest Mount Review

Universal Tablet Headrest Mount

Bracketron provides a clever way to securely mount an iPad (or other tablet) to the headrest of one of the forward seats in your car. A big screen HD TV in the back seat of a car? Well, pretty close!

SuperTooth HD
Review

SuperTooth HD Review
Company: SuperTooth
Price: $129.00 USD

As a commuter with a fairly long drive to work each day, I often find myself in situations where I need to use my iPhone while driving. Aside from the fact that using a cell phone while driving can be dangerous, it is also illegal to do so in New York State. Utilizing a Bluetooth handset and going hands-free is the only safe and legal option for motorists needing to use their cellular devices in my area of the country.

I’m not a big fan of in-ear Bluetooth devices. I find them uncomfortable and distracting, and that’s not a situation I want myself in while driving. The SuperTooth HD speaker phone seems to fix that dilemma with its visor-mounted handsfree system.
