We haven’t even had Thanksgiving yet, and already the stores are pushing Christmas shopping. Isn’t that jumping the gun just a little bit? But then again, I guess it’s never too early to start, so here are some of my favorite tech toys for gadget boys. Okay, for gadget girls too! I’m sure some RVer on your shopping list will love some, or all of them.
Amazon Kindle – With prices for the base model Kindle e-books readers down to just $79, they have never been more affordable, and with more than a million e-books (and growing every day) available, how can you not surprise the bookworm on your shopping list with one this Christmas? Hint: A copy of my book Big Lake should be the first one you download! 🙂
Verizon MiFi – Getting online has never been easier, and the new Verizon 4G MiFi devices offer easy, portable internet access anywhere you have a wireless signal, providing a WiFi hotspot for up to five wireless devices at once.
Silverleaf VMSpc engine monitoring system – If you have a diesel engine, you really need a Silverleaf VMSpc. I don’t know how I lived without mine! It monitors my Cummins diesel engine and Allison automatic transmission, is more accurate than my motorhome’s factory gauges, and gives me a lot of extra information that those gauges don’t provide.
Garmin 465T GPS – When you’re driving a big rig down the highway, you need a GPS designed for your specialized needs. Developed for the trucking industry, the Garmin 465T is my choice. I can program it for the size and weight of our motorhome, and it alerts me to low bridges, roads not suitable for my RV, upcoming steep grades, lane changes, and a lot more to make my trip safer and easier. Its database also includes truck stops, diesel repair shops, truck washes, and other handy information.
Docuscan portable document scanner – For scanning everything from documents to photographs, this small, light, and easy to use color scanner can’t be beat! I use mine all the time, and find it invaluable.
Panasonic Lumix FZ-40 – People are always asking how Miss Terry takes such incredible photographs. Of course, natural talent has a lot to do with it, but an artist needs good tools too, and this excellent digital camera fits the bill. It has amazing zoom capabilities, fine image stabilization, and shoots videos that are just as good as its still photos.
Tire Monitoring System – I won’t pull out of our campsite until checking my motorhome’s tires with our PressurePro tire monitoring system. While on the road, it alerts me to high and low pressure changes, to help prevent damage to my motorhome and tow vehicle.
So there you have it, enough gadgets and gizmos to make every techie in the campground happy come Christmas morning! Break out that old credit card and go shopping!
Thought For The Day – Insanity does not run through my family, it strolls through slowly, taking its time and getting to know everybody on a first name basis.
