The coolest car gadgets you can buy online

When it comes to hitting the road in style, safety should always come first. Here’s our YiFi roundup of the top new tools that will help you transform your daily commute!



Let’s start with some good news. According to the most recent figures from the National Centre for Statistics and the Royal Oman Police (ROP), by the end of January 2018, the number of road accidents in Oman has decreased by 39% compared to last year.

While this dramatic decline can be credited to safety awareness campaigns carried out by the ROP, it’s worth noting that safety standards of cars, and better management of emergency cases, have also played a significant part.

To help you on your way behind the wheel, here are some of the newest gadgets that you shouldn’t be without:

Ztylus Stinger USB Emergency Escape Tool

This multifunctional emergency tool comes with a spring-loaded window punch that works easily and quickly to give you the best chance for escaping your vehicle in the event of an emergency.

The Stinger, however, will only break tempered glass – it’s not designed to break windshields or laminated glass. It also comes with a razor-sharp blade to help you cut your seatbelt if you find yourself unable to release it normally.
