Travel Gadget Video of the Week - Best Traveling Apps And Gadgets For Summer Road Trips

Best traveling apps and gadgets for summer road trips

In this video, the newest SUV from Volvo XC90. It comes with the app that can start the car, lock it, tell you what is the fuel range and more. This is not the only car coming out this year with these features. Several other automakers are now releasing apps with the new models. Making it more convenient to keep track of your vehicle.
One of the cool features in the car, which was barely mentioned but used, is the electrical plug, 12-volt adapter, in back where the Ride-Fi was plugged in. This would give you an auxiliary charging port for the rear passengers.

New Cool Up-and-Coming Travel Gadgets - December

New Cool Up-and-Coming Travel Gadgets - December

Robot Tested for Airport Check-In
Any technology that speeds up check-in and time at the airport, and functions well, would be a great improvement to the current system. While these robots are set to target premium travelers, after the beta testing, it is likely to hit mainstream as well.

Tesla's Model S on Autopilot gets the real test — navigating New York City traffic
It is not a self-driving car. Though it is a huge improvement on the old Cruise Control. With CC on you can let go of the pedals but you have to hold on to the wheel and, if getting closer to traffic, need to touch the brakes to make sure to keep good distance. With Tesla's Autopilot, you can take foot and hands off. The car will make adjustments as necessary to keep you within the lane and even break and slow down as necessary.

Volvo’s new child seat concept makes you actually want to have a child

Stroller folds up small enough to fit in a backpack
If you have kids and ever had to travel with a stroller either in the car or on the plane, you know how much of a pain it could be to fold one up and then find enough space to put it in. We were very glad that we have updated our automobile to an SUV before our kid was born as I don't know how we would have fit half the stuff into the sedan. This stroller makes it even more convenient to travel since it can fold up and be stored in a bag. So technically could be the kid's carry-on luggage.

Baseball Postseason Best (And Worst) Stadiums' WiFi

Baseball Postseason Best (And Worst) Stadiums WiFi

As a precursor to the MLB World Series due to start next week, RootMetrics performed a study on wireless services across all of the baseball stadiums. Below are some of the results. You can see the full report here.
As of last night the showdown will be between NY Mets and Kansas City Royals. Currently, only Mets from NLCS are through to the Finals. Their opponent will be either Toronto Bluejays or Kansas City Royals. Based on the cell phone performance, sports fans attending the games would have fared much better at the Toronto stadium. The worst mobile performance was seen at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. And since that's the venue for first few games, bring some signal boosters and patience.

Though as anyone who ever used them knows, they can be quite cumbersome to put on. They stick and when they get wet its hard to put them on or takeoff. This backpack is an awesome design for travel and those situations.  with pull out jacket is a great concept for those times.
