Time has changed the way we drive. Where hours spent behind the wheel used to mean complete isolation from the outside world, smartphones and their applications have given us the means we need to continue working remotely, to stay on track without getting lost and to keep ourselves entertained during those longer hauls.

In the massive Android Market, there are a ton of automotive apps to choose from, but some are just more useful than others. We’ve narrowed down some of the best picks for Android and here they are.

Remember: Don’t be an idiot! Never fiddle around with your phone while you’re driving and always exercise extreme caution and use common sense to avoid becoming distracted while behind the wheel.

Thankfully, I’ve never had to use car Accident Toolkit in a real-life situation, but I’ve got it ready to go, just in case. This program helps you to thoroughly document your accident by providing prompts for all of the information your insurance company will need to file a claim. What I really like about this app is the fact that you don’t have to remember anything in the wake of an incredibly stressful or potentially traumatic situation. The app asks you the questions and you just have to fill in the blanks.
