« Tyre Inflator - A must for every car. Not only can track in exact tyre pressure psi for your car before commencing your long trip, can fill tyre pressure to optimal range too on weekly to fortnight basis in seconds and have your car tyres give best life if maintained with accurate tyre pressure

Also, With possibility of puncture, you will never be stranded on road (as long as tyre is not burst). A Puncture tyre can be refilled using this tyre inflator, been air will deflate very slowly - can drive in for few kms to reach nearby puncture shop for repair of puncture tyre.

We checked and Tested Michelin Digital Tyre Inflator, a Fantastic Product

available in Single Barrel and Double Barrel. To be note that its Manual and you need to press barrel up and down through your Foot, but as against Automatic one - consider it to be highly reliable and will offer long lasting peace of mind ownership.

Will even recommend, that if you have Tyre Inflator - you do not need to spend high amount for separate Tyre Pressure Monitoring System as it comes with Sensors and is a task to fit in TPMS and then change sensor after a year.

Strongly Recommended cost in range of Rs 2000 to 2500

« Rear View Camera - Feel like no need to Strain your Head while Reversing the Car.

Note: Rear View Camera has only a Camera, Sensors may well be required in form of Parking Sensors along with it.

However, its recommended to use one which comes with fitment visibility on IRVM Mirror along with Gridlines for directional Movement as thats the best position for eyes while reversing Car. It can cost in range of Rs 5000 onwards

 

 

» DashCam (DVR - Digital Video Recorder) - Dash Camera are what an important safety feature and records On road drive. A Device which can record Footage on the go and can prove very handy

  • In Event of Road Accidents
  • In Event of any Mishap on Road
  • Proven in Court of Law as location coordinates are shared
  • Use to Capture any Violation if you feel done by Other Motorist or Deal with Traffic Police 

It can prove to be an important footage while driving the car on road and can prove handy in some critical situation. Go with one which comes with Geo-location, Inbuilt feature wherein the Car recording should automatically move to Cloud Data, so that one can have previous recordings saved in, Else in case of mis-hap the car memory data if corrupted in case of accident would serve no purpose.

Although Transcend is pretty good but An Excellent Choice basis User Feedback and Price Competitive Market in Dashcam is 70 Mai Pro Plus DashCam which cost Rs 8000 or an advanced version which is Dual Channel Dash Cam which cost Rs 10500 approx
