3 Easy Upgrades to Modernize Your Older Car

Apr 18, 2018

Your prized older car may be looking like it had better days, but there are things you can do to spruce it up with technology so you don’t feel left out.

Older cars don’t have a lot of the fancy new technology that is common in newer cars, but you don’t have to visit a dealership and buy a whole new car to get a lot of the same features. If you want more connectivity, more information from your car, and more features, there are some easy upgrades to help your car feel more modern and make it more convenient.

Coolwoo Car Backup Camera

Reverse cameras are pretty much standard now in new cars, but drivers of older cars do not need to feel left out. Coolwoo has a genuinely great aftermarket backup camera for older vehicles. It is very easy to install and comes with a wide angle lens design that effectively kills blind spots while parking. Also, for durability, the camera comes with an international IP68 Standard Waterproof level. This ensures superior functionality in heavy rain and wet weather in general.

Sony XAV Apple CarPlay/Android Auto Media Receiver

This 6.4-inch touchscreen system will give access to a new feature that is all the rage with newer cars these days: voice control with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In addition, you can also create virtual speakers on your dashboard with the Dynamic Stage Organizer function. So if your older car doesn’t have Bluetooth, this is a great way to add it so you can make calls, dictate text messages while driving, stream music or podcasts, and use navigation.

ScanGauge 3-in-1 Automotive Computer

This device has great user reviews, is easy to mount, and gives you readouts of engine coolant temperature, transmission fluid temperature, fuel economy, and other vehicle diagnostics. This type of information display is normally built right into newer cars, but this makes getting important vehicle information easier for drivers with older cars.
