Luxe Introduces Drive Home, Which Allows You To Get A Valet To Drive You Home In Your Own Car After A Night Out

Luxe is a service that allows you to summon a valet to park your car when time or energy is low, something that many people probably won't consider using due to either reluctance to paying for this sort of thing or because they don't live in an area where it just isn't very hard to park for yourself.

Pioneer has been the only company thus far to ship Android Auto-equipped aftermarket head units, but now Kenwood has made good on its previous announcement. The DDX9902S and DDX9702S are shipping to retailers, but the pricing will be obscene. Kenwood's MSRP on the units is $900 (DDX9702S) and $950 (DDX9902S).

These head units both have a 6.95-inch resistive (!) touchscreen, HD radio, HDMI input, CD/DVD, and SiriusXM support.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Gold Box Has An Anker 10000mAh External Battery With Dual USB, Flashlight, And Car Starter (Yes, Really) For $59.99

An external USB-powered battery is not a complex piece of electronics. Generally it has energy input, energy output via a couple of standard USB ports, maybe a few LED lights for measuring the charge, and perhaps a flashlight if the manufacturer is feeling creative.

Initial Hands-On With Android Auto: It's Probably Better Than What You Have Now

It has been nearly a year since Google announced Android Auto, and it's still available almost nowhere.

This New Smart Car Swaps The Infotainment System For A Center-Mounted Phone Dock And A Bluetooth Connection

Have you ever looked at your low-tech car audio system and wished your head unit could just be as smart as the phone in your pocket? Or maybe you have one of those fancy infotainment systems whose software tends to make the HTC G1 look futuristic by comparison.

Google Launches Tool For Comparing Car Insurance Providers, California-Only For Now

Car insurance isn't something you buy because you want to. I mean sure, I'd buy it even if I didn't have to, but I do have to, and so does basically everyone else in the US who wants to drive a car.

Seeing which manufacturers will bake Android Auto into their latest models is cool and all, but I'm looking to see which third-party options start appearing on store shelves. After all, I bought my vehicle in 2013, and I'm not looking to replace it in the next couple of years.
