Advanced technology makes today’s automobiles safer, more convenient, and more fun to drive. You can try out these high-tech features by test driving many of the vehicles at the dealerships of Beach Boulevard of Cars.
While self-driving cars are still evolving, automated systems can already improve the safety of your current commute. These features typically depend on external cameras, sensors, and radar systems to detect potential hazards. They can then warn you and take steps to avoid an accident. Some examples include the following:
Although many vehicle infotainment systems include a built-in radio, navigation system, and subscriptions to traffic and weather data services, they also connect to your compatible smartphone through support for Apple CarPlay and Google Android. You can then use the dashboard touchscreen to make phone calls, play your music files, access your contact list, and engage selected smartphone apps. Many vehicles also allow subscriptions to 4G LTE WiFi so you and your passengers can still access the Internet using your favorite devices while you’re traveling on the road.
Teen Driver Technology encourages good habits when your kids get behind the wheel in Orange County. It lets you define settings on the coded key that they use. You can define the maximum speed and volume, prevent safety systems from being turned off, and leave the radio turned off until the safety belts are fastened. So you know how you’re kids did on the road, you can view an in-vehicle Report Card that reveals how fast and far they drove, whether they violated any limits, and whether they activated any warning features.
The 360-Degree Camera System depends on at least four external cameras mounted on the front, sides, and rear of your vehicle. It then puts the images together, so you receive a virtual top-down view of your surroundings. You can then pull out of a tight parking space, maneuver in packed traffic, and parallel park more conveniently. Some versions include a split-screen capability so you can view a second image showing images from just one camera, such as when you want to see what’s behind you while pulling into reverse.
