This piece was written by the Cracked Store to tell you about products that are being sold there.
You buy a new phone every year, but odds are you're driving a car from five or ten years ago, and that means there's some disconnect. Maybe you have to balance your smartphone on your steering wheel, or maybe you glued a webcam to your fender to help you parallel park. Needless to say, your car isn't the futuristic marvel you've always dreamed about. But thanks to these gadgets, it can be. And they're coming at you fresh from the Cracked Store. (And take an additional 15 percent off with the code PREZDAY15.)
Most phone car mounts suction cup to your windshield or dashboard and then fall over when it gets too hot or you play with the suction too much. This one sits right in your cup holder, making your phone just as safe as your most precious cargo: an ice-cold milkshake.

A dashcam is only as good as the footage it provides, which is why the GoSafe adjusts for weather conditions and lighting to make sure everything it records is crystal clear and not blasted with rainwater.

If you ever get in an accident that requires a glass breaker or seat belt cutter, you're going to want to make sure you know exactly where they are.
