Car tech for commuting fun, safety and productivity

For some, the car is more than just a tool, it’s a way of life. There are commuters on the road, parents shuttling kids from long school days to endless activities, and road trippers for whom a traffic jam is an opportunity to slow down and take it all in. No matter which profile you fit, there are gadgets you can stash in your car to make life easier.

Go hands-free in any car with new Pioneer audio decks

Distracted driving has become a big problem now that we all have smartphones. With all your music on your phone, texts coming in nonstop, directions to where you are going right there on your phone display and the occasional voice call coming in, it’s really tempting to pick up that iPhone and look. Don’t do it. Using a hand held device while driving a vehicle is illegal in every province (except Nunavut). And it’s just plain dangerous. However, there is a solution and a pretty elegant one at that. Upgrade your in-car entertainment system with a new Pioneer audio deck and go hands-free!
