A Guide to Buying a Car Thermometer

Mickey | Cars and Trucks | Saturday, January 8th, 2011

Owners of older car models may want to buy a car thermometer because these cars do not have this built in device. To guide you in buying the best car accessory in the market, I will offer some tips on what functions to look for.

  • Choose a car thermometer that can accurately read both the inside and car thermometer outside temperature. You can only do this if you did your own research on the Internet before shopping for one.
  • Check if the car accessory has an external sensor because if it doesn’t have that sensor, then it will be considered useless because it can only read the outside temperature if you open the car window.
  • Make sure that the model has a self-sticking pad to allow you to put it where you think you can easily see it.
  • If you want to customize the car’s interior, then you need to be careful about the back light color of the car thermometer.
  • The price of the model depends on the functions it offers. You should consider your budget. The cheapest is under $10 and only offers the basic function of this car accessory and the most expensive can reach $200, which provides a variety of functions such as a calendar, alarm, and a clock.
  • The add on car accessory can be powered using batteries or a a cigarette lighter plug. If you think that it’s a hassle to change the batteries from time to time, then choose the model that has a plug. One advantage of a battery-powered unit is that it can be used for other purposes.
  • Upon purchase, test the device’s accuracy in reading the temperature. Try turning on your car’s air conditioning and check the temperature. Turn the air conditioning and again, check the temperature. Through this type of testing, you can be assured its reliability.

All in all, you need to be careful when buying this car accessory because you spent your money on it, so you need to ensure that you get your money’s worth with its service.
