5 Must-Have Apps for Your Car

With other things that keep us occupied such as jobs, household, and family schedules, it’s difficult to prioritize our vehicle. However, there are apps that can help keep track of maintenance, security, navigation, and safety to help make our lives easier.


SaferCar is available to help keep you and the road safer by managing any recalls that are out there. No matter what kind of vehicle you are driving or what type of equipment you are using (such as car seats, tires, etc.), you can have peace of mind while driving. SaferCar can alert you immediately if there has been a recall so that you can be aware and take the proactive steps to protect yourself and your family.  


If you are the owner of an electric vehicle then PlugShare is the perfect app for you! It can be hard to find compatible charging stations, especially while traveling. PlugShare does the work for you. It offers options to pay for your charge directly from your phone and navigation to the nearest electric charging stations. It will help give you the peace of mind you need and the freedom to travel wherever you want to go in your electric vehicle.    


Paying for gas is not a task we all look forward to, but it is something that must be done. GasBuddy is a mobile app that is available to help you locate the cheapest gas to ensure the most bang for your buck. It also allows consumers the ability to find gas stations nearest to them if they are not familiar with an area. 

CARFAX Car Care:

We know CARFAX is known for its ability to provide extensive details about a car you may potentially purchase, but with CARFAX Car Care you are able to keep track of the car you currently own. The Car Care app is simple to use and can provide recall alerts, service reminders, history-based value, and a place to keep track of your vehicle service history for FREE! 

Find My Parked Car:

We have all mistakenly forgotten where we parked our car at one point in time. Whatever the case may be, the Find My Parked Car app helps make sure that it doesn’t happen again. Just open the app and save your car’s position on the map. You can also take a picture to help document it further. Once you are ready to relocate your car, just reopen the app and it will tell you the distance to your car along with live directions.

Let us help take care of your car and make sure you are covered with auto insurance. Contact your local agent today:
