Summer tip: prevent your electronics from overheating in the car

Here's a relatively simple summer tip for those of you who keep electronics (such as iPods and GPS navigators) in the car. Keep a small ice chest in your car and keep your electronics in the ice chest. They should stay cooler in there (compared to your console or glove compartment box).

Never leave your iPod or GPS units in direct sunlight when you park your car. The temperature inside your car can get extremely high during the summer. Plus, you're at risk of losing your electronic device to theft if it's out in the open. Want to keep your device even cooler? Keep that ice chest in the trunk of your car.

  1. This was the lesson I learned when I left my iPod inside the car and it was positioned directly under the heat of the sun. It over heated and won't work anymore.
