Help that driver protect that ride from the elements with a customized vehicle cover. The Silverguard Plus from Coverking is water-resistant to guard against rain or snow and reflective to protect against the hot sun. The heavy weave is tear resistant, and the soft inner layer won’t scratch the car’s finish.

Garmin probably makes the most intuitive GPS devices on the market. The nüvi 3790T includes functions like voice-activation, Bluetooth calling and optional 3D landscape views. With a very clean, sleek design, it’s easily the best looking GPS on the market. The two-hour battery life won’t do much for longer trips, but the nüvi 3790T comes with a USB cable for charging and updating software.
