With cost of motoring soaring, we wanted to share with you some money saving technology that can help reduce the costs of either your vehicle insurance or fuel consumption.

Here are a few examples of technology that could save you a fortune:

Dash Cams are great for covering you during an accident as the footage provides evidence for actually happened during the accident. This will prove beneficial financially when taking out vehicle insurance as many insurers offer discounts for those that have a dash cam fitted.

Steering Lock - OBD Protectors

A steering lock is an easy way to add an anti-theft protection as thieves can steal vehicles electronically which also means they can access the On-Board Diagnostics port which is used by dealers, this could allow thieves to clone keys or control the vehicle all by accessing the ECU. Once fitted insurance companies may offer discounts for added protection and it’s a lot cheaper option than a stolen vehicle.

Sat Navs

A good Sat Nav with live services will provide the most efficient routes to save you from burning fuel by sitting in traffic jams or driving around wasting more fuel. Sat Navs also offer speed camera alerts and speed limit changes which could prevent a minimum speeding fine which can set you back £100 and penalty points which can affect your insurance.
