Top 5 Ways to Update Your Vehicle

Top 5 Ways To Update Your Vehicle By Zach Bowman, Contributing Editor
Now, we are first to admit that it’s true most new cars have more advanced technology on board than the Virgin Galactic - and all these techie goodness makes living with your vehicle a breeze - but that doesn’t mean you need to shell out hard-earned money for a brand new car.



Aftermarket car stereos exist to fit nearly every make and model. Updating your current vehicle’s technology options is easier than you think.

A whole realm of aftermarket options exists to bring your car from the digital dark ages into the light, with most carrying a price tag that’s much easier to swallow than a new car loan. There are plenty of great reasons out there to want a new car, but buying an expensive piece of new sheet metal for the bleeding-edge gadgetry shouldn’t be one of them. Read on for the top 5 ways to update your vehicle.

The Stereo
Swapping your factory sound system for an aftermarket unit can do wonders for how you live with your vehicle. The newest stereo systems usually work with all of the other tech bits you seem to have incorporated into your life. Thanks to the wonder of Bluetooth connectivity, your GPS system and cell phone can route through your car’s speakers, making for a safer driving experience. While prices for a new head unit can start as low as a $200, it’s worth it to pick one with all the features you want—including MP3 capability and Bluetooth goodness. Some companies, like Crutchfield , can do a great job helping you pick a system that will suit your needs. If you’re handy, they can even send you detailed instructions on how to install it yourself. Or, if you’re near a service center, they can install it for you.

If you’re worried that your late model’s dash won’t support the slim and svelte aftermarket units you see in most cars, don’t sweat. Mobile audio makers have head units to fit just about any and every car on the planet. If your current ride has a factory radio that’s much larger than your replacement, the installer can either select what’s referred to as a DIN stereo to fill the empty space, or simply use a block off plate or an extra storage area below or above your new unit for a flawless from-factory look.

Of course, the best stereo in the world isn’t going to sound all that awesome with your old, worn-out speakers. While you can go ahead and replace them with OEM pieces, for about the same money you can pick up a set of high-quality, bass-heavy speakers. Again, you can pretty much spend as much as you want to here, but shopping around, reading reviews and talking to an audio specialist can point you in a direction that will work best for your needs and with your new head unit.

GPS
There’s a reason that nearly every new car out there is available with some sort of navigation system - these things are incredibly handy. GP...
