Driving safely is a national conversation and we know how to help. Whether it’s seeing obstacles behind you, minimizing distractions or preventive notifications, we have a broad range of safety-oriented solutions for your vehicle. Increasing driver awareness behind the wheel is how drivers, passengers and others on the road gain increased safety. We specialize in offering and installing many of the ‘new car’ features for all cars, regardless year, make or model and if those options were ever offered. Anything that minimizes distractions or enhances driver awareness is a safety-oriented product and you’ll find them at Tip Top Customs.
Reverse Cameras and Sensors
We offer many solutions for visually and audibly alerting any obstacles behind the vehicle when backing up. Cameras in many styles that are all high resolution and weather-proof for the harsh Illinois winters can easily be installed in your vehicle, whether or not you have an existing in-dash screen for viewing the image. We can add a screen in the dash, rear view mirror or as an input to a new head unit. We also offer reverse sensor systems similar to those on premium-brand new vehicles. These offer a progressive audible warning when objects near the rear of the vehicle are too close. Whatever your car, we have solutions.
Hands-Free Smartphone Use
With the 2014 Illinois ‘hand-held communication device’ legislation that limits holding your phone while driving, Tip Top Customs has many solutions that answer that challenge to increase safety and add convenience to your drive. Many customers already identify with terminology like “Bluetooth” and “hands-free” for purposes of placing and receiving calls, but our safe use of smartphones while in the car go well beyond that. In addition to hands-free calling, we can:
- Wirelessly stream music stored on your smartphone so that you need not touch the phone to access music, change songs, etc.
- Inhibit text messages from coming to the phone while the vehicle is in motion
- Provide the phone’s screen, apps and functionality on a new in-dash head unit so the phone can be safely stored away
- Enable the voice control functions of the smartphone without having to touch or view the phone
The issue of smartphones in cars is one of convenience versus safety. We have many thoughtful solutions to enhance safe use of smartphones without having to necessarily compromise on the convenience of staying connected. Contact our friendly in-house experts to learn about options available for your specific phone and vehicle combination. Located in Morris, just outside of Joliet, Tip Top Customs has something for every type of car.
