Dubai’s a big city. It’s hard to walk around it, especially in the heat of summer, and a car is almost a necessity (unless you’re willing to fork out on taxis).

If you’ve got a car, then you’ll understand the connection that develops between owner and vehicle in this sweltering city.

A modern woman needs a modern car, so we thought we’d throw together a few of our favourite gizmos and apps to help make your motor just that little bit more practical.

So with no further ago, here are five car gadgets that every woman needs to have:

Car Finder App

If you’re always forgetting where you parked, fret not. Just tag the exact location you left the car in, and then walk back to your parking spot with the help of augmented reality. You don’t even need an internet connection.
