Check out the Smart Start app available for all smartphones except Windows. Remember how cold last winter was? Just imagine how cold this winter is going to be. With this app you don’t have to worry about sitting in your car warming up for 10-15 minutes. You can set a schedule for what temperature you want your car to be. The app also gathers local weather information and asks you if you would like to start your car if outside temperatures reach a certain temperature. You don’t have to worry about touching a cold steering wheel or cold leather seats ever again. You just come outside, jump in your car and drive to work or drop the kids off at school.
This app seems to be the most useful app for cars alongside Google Maps. For an extra fee, this app also has GPS capability to track your car. This could be helpful when your teenage son asks to borrow the car for the weekend. Or when you forget where you parked at the mall. Prices range from $250-$539 for the system. The app is free. Installation can cost additional fees.
