Best iPhone Car Accessories for 2013

accesories I love to carry my phone around- I have my favourite music on it, carefully categorized depending on my mood- from rock ballads to chill-out,  from classics to club music or those crazy trance mixes that almost make me jump off the treadmill when I go to the gym. It’s great when I see something nice and want to take a picture to share it with my friends on Twitter/ Facebook, or when I have to get somewhere and I am not really sure how to reach the exact address and then a GPS app come so in handy. Of course, sometimes when I need it the most I see that I my battery is running low and that really ruins my day. If you use your phone as much as I do, if you spend time on the road, driving to work and back or you simply want to stay connected with the world no matter you are in the car or at home, I hope you will enjoy the following post. I have tried to put together here some of the best iPhone car accessories on the market.
