Five Must-Have iPhone Apps For Your Car
There are few things that drivers are more worried about than the rising cost of fuel. Unfortunately, the prices are not expected to get lower any time soon, so it is nice to know that you are always getting the best possible deal with iGasUp. This application allows you to find the cheapest place to get gas near your surroundings. While it is exclusive to the United States, it is not unthinkable that it will soon expand throughout other places as well. The app gives you the ability to sort through the ten closest gas stations and see which one is closest near you and which one is the cheapest. IGasUp is very handy when you do not want to worry about paying more than you should.

After each trip (even short ones) this apps is going to give you a detailed listing of how much money you spent on that trip. A great way to drive more efficiently.
One of the most frustrating things about going somewhere you have not been before is finding a parking space, especially when you are in a major city or you are already running late. With this app, you can find out more about the nearby parking facilities, how it costs to park there, and how far you are from them.
If you ever seen one of those problem codes pop on your car and had absolutely no idea what it was trying to tell you, you know the frustration associated with that. You do need the GoPoint cable to use this app, which is quite expensive, but once you have that cable you can easily plug into your car's On-Board Diagnostics port. If you have a car made after 1995, you do not have to worry - your car has one of those ports. What your local mechanic may charge you an arm and a leg for, you can do for free once you have that cable.
