When you want to keep your hands free and mobile phone usage in check, there is a trend for car phone holders. There are those made to look like steering wheel; and those that are just attached to the interior.
As is often the case in NZ, when we use our phones on the road, they get lost or stolen. It’s a fact of life that applies to everyone. If you have invested in a GPS system, a car’s GPS is not likely to be affected by the theft, but what if you don’t?
So cars in NZ are getting increasingly expensive and specialists are now selling “vehicle accessories” to protect them from road users. Car owners in NZ can get accessories such as remote controls and phone holders, though these accessories come with a price.
In fact, some car holders are relatively expensive, but there are many cheaper models that are available, making the choice all the more difficult. The key issue is quality, which must be measured for good functionality and reliability.
A well-made holder will last a long time; however, it may need to be serviced on occasion for proper maintenance and good quality. And whilst the cost of servicing is not a big factor, it’s good to be aware of the cost before you go ahead and buy one.
Many car holders include an alarm or a remote control; and although these gadgets are luxury additions, many people will see the value in having them. Many receivers have two way calling, and this can allow you to talk to a caller even if you are miles apart. If your phone is not a smart phone, then you will also have voice mail.
So popular car phone holders are that nearly half of all new cars sold in NZ include one, especially if they are used frequently. The trend is for larger phones and less compact phones, so many holders now offer this.
But where small phones are concerned, they are becoming smaller. This is good news for drivers, as many receivers now come with some sort of anti-theft feature, which includes things like a steering wheel mounted alarm.
With the increasing importance of the internet for most of us, the option nowadays is to use a holder as a mobile phone stand. As the car owner, you will be able to carry your mobile phone or use your PC to check your emails, check stock prices, etc.
The car phone holder is a great gift option for any car owner, no matter what their car is. It makes it easier to check email on the road and allows the person who is driving to take their hand off the wheel.
On a lighter note, there are a few car accessories that can come in handy and these include holders that can be used as tool kits, jump starters and so on. You will find that most of these accessories are reasonably priced and make good gifts too.
As for the NZ, make sure you find an excellent seller, because the competition is tight. Whether you’re looking for phone holders, GPS mounts, alarms, or MP3 players, the phone market is huge, and finding the right one may take a little time.
