Now I am aware that driving a car could be fun if you use new technology!

Last Tuesday I had an opportunity to drive a car of my colleague. I usually don’t drive. I have a driving licence. Nonetheless, I don’t even posses my own vehicle. I simply didn’t find that funny or worth. I always rather thought of it as a duty, not as activity which could bring also a pleasure. Lately, just after that ride, I completely changed my mind! Nowadays, I am positive that this could be an amazing experience. I possibly changed my opinion thanks to the two gadgets I was using while driving.

First of all, the vehivle had bmw combox. You don’t know what it is? Don’t worry. A while ago I hadn’t heard about that too. However,that is something so amazing that it 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 this kind of planes, each passenger has its own screen on which they can listen to the music, play some game or watch favourite series. So a combox looked quite similar. On its screen I could choose between different multimedia as well as radio. I could also use a navigation option. It’s possible to even use the internet. Couuld you imagine that? This was like a computer installed just on the front of the vehicle! You may presumably think that I lie. I would like to assure you that I don’t. I could even connect that combox with the external devices. Either directly or through a Bluetooth! That is pretty impressive, isn’t it?

Additionally, he showed me how to use the parking assistance with bmw surround view option. As a result of having, surround view camera I could look at my like from bird’s-eye view. I could see the area and possible barriers not just in front of my vehicle, but also behind it and on both sides. Right after I have started the function, the system detected all items around my car. I could surely see all of this on a screen. That function even let me know when I was supposed to turn on a turn-signal! Later on, the information appeared on a screen. It said that I should engage reverse gear as well as remove hands from a steering wheel When I executed this command, the steering wheel began to spin itself! That was amazing. Nevertheless, we still have tokeep in mind that it is just a machine. We still should make sure that there are no passerbies behind a car.
