The Five Hottest Car Tech Features of 2016.

The Five Hottest Car Tech Features of 2016.

Are you one of those people who refuses to be impressed with new technology until you can actually download your favorite food straight from your laptop? Well, I am one of them. Technology developing so fast. But I can’t even remember the last time I was impressed with a new tech invention. There comes a time when you simply can’t get surprised anymore. So yes, I am still waiting for food downloads.

5 Hottest Car Tech Features of 2016

Nevertheless, technology keeps moving forward in an attempt to awe us with the incredible new features. Remember when cars were solely designed to serve as a means of transport? Me neither. We are spending more and more time in cars. Be it for our daily commute or long road trips. Automobile designers work hard to make us feel more ‘at home’ whenever we have to use our cars.

Each year, automakers add myriads of new features and twists to existing car technology. What are the hottest car tech features of 2016, you ask? Here are the top five, in our opinion:

Car-home symbiosis

The internet of things (IoT) continues to be the headline of many tech-related announcements. Right after 2016 kicked off, Ford and Amazon announced that the two companies would be working together on finding a way to connect cars to smart homes.

At the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Ford CEO Mark Fields demonstrated how cars could connect with Amazon and Wink devices. This new feature would allow Ford car owners to access their vehicle from their smart homes and perform various functions like: starting or stopping the car, getting detailed information and statistics about car trips, to name a few.

Garmin BabyCam

Are you a new parent? You would probably get very excited about this new car feature that makes driving with a baby on board way easier.

Garmin’s in-vehicle babyCam allows you to check on your child whenever you want without requiring you to turn around, risking your safety and that of everyone around. Featuring night vision, Garmin BabyCam is very easy to install and costs around $200.

Self-Installing Car Seat

Talking about child safety on board, 4Moms’ new self-installing car seat for babies makes it easier for parents to travel along with a little one. By installing itself correctly, verifying and checking installation before every car ride, and monitoring the baby at all times, this feature is a must-have.

Four out of five times car seats are not installed correctly, therefore, putting the life of a child at risk. This new car tech feature that costs around $500 will not only make sure that your baby is safe but will also give you peace of mind so that you can focus more on the road.

Toyota Next-Generation Maps

Another hot car tech feature that was announced at CES: Toyota next-generation maps. By introducing the new system, the company strives to enrich mapping data and build the most accurate maps using information gathered from GPS units and cameras installed in production vehicles.

According to Toyota, this new feature will be fully integrated into automated cars by 2020.

BMW i Vision Future Interaction Car

First introduced last January in Las Vegas, this cool new concept is based on the i8 Concept Spyder. The i Vision Future Interaction car is probably the closest we’ve got to imagine how the interior of sports cars will look like soon. Featuring 3D AirTouch and touch-Sensitive Surfaces, BMW i8 Vision Future offers Pure Drive, Assist, and Auto driving modes.

Cars connected to smart homes, BMW i Vision Future, Toyota next-generation maps, and two cool features for new parents, self-installing car seat and Garmin BabyCam, are just some of the hottest car tech innovations to have been introduced this year. 2016 is not over yet! We are anxious to see what other fantastic features it has in store for us. I, for one, am looking forward to what the future will bring. Are you?

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
