Thinking Twice About the Features We Want in Our Cars

According to Top Gear Philippines: Study shows carmakers are pouring money into features we don’t even use.

The more high tech the cars have, the more things that could go wrong. This is exactly what Phil Edmonston was talking about in this CBC News video:

So don’t fret if you can’t afford that shiny new luxurious mid-size SUV. It is a valid excuse, although I sound sour-graping by saying so.

Why I’m reluctant to install a dashcam

I have to say the TGP article isn’t really about selling the idea of why dashboard cameras are a must for all drivers, but I myself am totally convinced that indeed I should get one. In fact, the same Transcend DrivePro 200 is in my short list.

The only problem I have with that is dealing with the cables that go with the setup. Not that I always keep a nifty car dashboard and/or console, but the nasty wirings is surely an additional item to worry about.

So, unless there’s a dashboard that enables a nifty setup, I’m holding off my purchase.
