6 Awesome Android Apps For Car Drivers

Technology is a huge part of our lives these days, and one essential piece of technology that most people have at their disposal these days is a smartphone! There are various brands of smartphone on the market in 2014, but the most-popular ones have Google’s Android operating system running on them.

A large number of motorists take their Android-based smartphones with them in the car, and for the most part they just sit on the dashboard or in the centre console of the car’s interior not really doing anything.

But did you know that there are some great Android apps that can be used for motoring purposes? Here are some of the best ones that you need to get for your handset today!

Google Maps

You may well have used it on your computer, but did you know that you can also use the Google Maps app on your Android smartphone as well? It’s a great way of getting turn-by-turn directions on your handset for free.

Get the Google Maps app for your Android smartphone today (it’s free).

TomTom U.K. & Ireland

The only main disadvantage about the Google Maps app is that it relies on live data; in other words, you need to have an active mobile data connection.

But if you would prefer a mapping system that works offline and can be updated at your leisure, get yourself the TomTom U.K. & Ireland app instead!

AA Parking

Don’t you just hate it when you’re in the car driving around some unfamiliar place and you just can’t seem to find somewhere to park? It’s enough to send some motorist’s blood pressure through the roof! A practical solution to this parking predicament is to download the AA Parking app.

WhatGas Petrol Prices Pro

One thing that really annoys me about motoring is the fact that you can fill up your tank with petrol or diesel at one filling station, and then discover that you could have saved several pence per litre filling up somewhere else nearby!

If this annoys you too, get the WhatGas Petrol Prices Pro app as recommended by Pentagon Group so that you can be informed of the fuel prices in your local area.

I know that TripAdvisor is a great way of finding the best hotels around the world, but did you know that it’s also a handy way of determining what the best restaurants are in your area? Perfect for road trips and those times where you travel to unfamiliar areas but are unsure where to grab a bite to eat!

Get the TripAdvisor app for your Android smartphone today (it’s free).

Torque Pro (OBD 2 & Car)

If your car has seen better days and it’s starting to ‘play up’ a bit, the Torque Pro (OBD 2 & Car) app can help you to find out what might be causing your engine woes. You will need to buy a Bluetooth OBD2 adapter for it to work, though.

Get the Torque Pro (OBD 2 & Car) app for your Android smartphone today (it costs £2.95).
