Nowadays technology takes all. Intelligent houses, Smart phones and vehicles full of electronic devices – these are the objects which are the most popular in the past year. Technology give customers lots of opportunieties, specially in modern cars.

Many cars have got very handy devices which assist us for example in finding parking space or in appropriate driving. One of them is front pdc for BMW and other models, it is handy and safe, specially when we must stop in narrow places. Now around large shops we have got giant parking spaces, unfortunately not all of them are designed to be handy, specially for big cars (front pdc for BMW solves this inconvenience) (read). These devices help not only experienced, however also disabled drivers and makes their life easier. GPS-navigation, possibility to receiving calls and e-mails, smartphone apps, sound amplifier for BMW, Fiat, Nissan and many others, all of these programs and devices change our style of riding.

On the other hand we starting to be unable to use paper maps or stop in the unusual areas. It is a nice idea to turn off for a while our electronic items all of these sound amplifier for BMW and parking control panels and try to only go alone, without supporting. Naturally not in company vehicles, when we have to be on specific hour, however in our private vehicles. We can also rent a very old vehicle (without electrical power steering) and attempt to have a journey to the nearest town or visit a small village. This short journey perfectly check our driving skills and give as a clue what we need to know. It is very important to know this.

Intelligent devices in our vechicles are great solutions for our society, however we musthave to remember that not always we will have got an opportunity to have got permament Global Web connection or a possibility to call for roadside assistance (look there). We must have got some minimal knowledge about mechanic and where we are and be aware in which way use it in critical situations.
