Your car will be exposed to natural hazards at any time of the year. Harsh weather can damage your car finish with acid rain, snow and hail, causing dents and dings on your car exterior.

4. GPS Navigation
Many people simply depend on their smartphones for navigation. However, the problem is that when the cellular service is down, they will not be able to use the maps, even when they are trying to locate a place. It is also not safe to be always looking at the smartphone, while you are on the road, driving.
A GPS navigation will be much safer than a smartphone. There will be no text messages popping up on your GPS unit to distract you. Additionally, it has stored maps in its memory, so it will not be affected when network is down or not available. Battery is also not a problem for GPS, unlike with the smartphones. Moreover, even when the satellite GPS goes down, the maps will still be available on the device and you will be able to look at them.
