Connected devices are becoming the wave of the future. We already have TVs, refrigerators, and even cars that can call us and let us know how they are doing. These devices reach out through the internet in most cases and talk to applications on our phones or they allow us to dial in and see what is going on. Now while these devices are nice, what do you do if you do not own one of these? How do you get your car to talk to you when it has no built in Bluetooth? PAPAGO! has an interesting option to give you a look into one of the many systems on your vehicle if it is not capable of communicating to you on its own. We will be taking a look at the PAPAGO! GoSafe TPMS 500BT (Tire Pressure Management System) and see just how handy it is.
With the introduction of smaller and smaller cameras the world became almost obsessed with recording every moment of their lives. We have seen an explosion of gadgets apps and services that allow us to post images and videos of our daily activities. For the most part these are mildly interesting, but not really ground shaking. There is an area that while appearing innocuous, can actually be an important one in many ways. This new area of life recording is the dashcam. These devices are designed to record our travels on the roads (and off). In most cases they are forward facing and do not do much more than record the road ahead of you to some sort of removable media. In more advanced cases they are capable of watching the road, ensuring that you are not drifting, warning if you are too close to something ahead of you and tracking your location. With these advanced cameras you have a safety product in addition to being able to broadcast your driving habits. Today we will be taking a look at one of these advanced models, the Papago P2 Pro. So let’s dive in and see what it can do.
