They use 80% less power than traditional bulbs, making them energy efficient to boot!


3. For the dad who won’t stop to ask for directions:


Get turn-by-turn directions to your destination for easy viewing while driving. The Head-Up Display (HUD) receives navigation information from your smartphone and projects it onto a transparent film on your windshield or an attached reflector lens. HUD automatically adjusts its brightness level, so its projections are clearly visible in direct sunlight or at night.  It has more navigation detail than other portable display systems, showing turn indicators, distance to the next turn, current speed and speed limit, and estimated time of arrival. HUD lets you know what lane to be in for your next maneuver, and alerts you if you exceed the speed limit. It also warns you of potential traffic delays and upcoming safety camera locations.


4. For the Rocker Dad:


Enjoy your music on the go, everywhere you go. The SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth speaker delivers full, natural sound from an ultra-compact speaker that fits in the palm of your hand.
