Nowadays I am aware that driving a car can be fun if you have new technology!

Last week I have had an opportunity to drive a car of my friend. I never drive. I own a driving licence. Nevertheless, I have never purchased a car. I simply didn’t find it enjoyable or interesting. I usually rather considered this as some kind of duty, not as a thing which can give also a joy. Lately, just after that ride, I completely changed my mind! These days, I think that it could become an unforgetable time. I probably changed my mind thanks to the two gadgets I was using during driving.

Firstly, the vehivle was equipped with bmw combox. You have no idea what it is? Don’t worry. Before that day I hadn’t heard about it too. However,that is something so awesome that this is good to be aware such technology exists. I would try to present it by the following way. Have you flied one of that very modern plane? In that type of planes, each passenger has its own screen on which he or she can choose the music, play a game or watch favourite series. So a combox is something very similar. On its screen I could choose between different multimedia as well as radio. I was able also choose a navigation option. I can even browse on the internet. Couuld you imagine this? It was like a laptop installed just on the front of a vehicle! You may presumably think that I exaggerate. I want make it certain that I don’t. I could even connect that combox with an external devices. It can be done directly or via the Bluetooth! That is very impressive, isn’t it?

What’s more, I was showed how to make a use of a parking assistance with bmw surround view option. As a result of having, surround view camera I was able to see my like from bird’s-eye view. I could see the space as well as possible barriers not only in front of my vehicle, but also in the back and on both sides. Right after I have activated this function, the system showed all items right next to the car. I could surely see all of this on a screen. This function even inform me when I was supposed to turn on a turn-signal! Thereafter, the information appeared on a screen. It said that I should use now reverse gear and remove hands from the steering wheel When I did as it had said, the steering wheel began to go around itself! It was amazing. However, we still need to remember that it is not more than a machine. We still have to double-check that there are no pedestrians around the car.
