Driving vacations, the endless miles, the bad food, and the constant question, “Are we there yet?” If you're one of the 70% of American families planning a road trip this year, Jimmy Rhoades and Teresa Strasser teamed up with Digital Lifestyle Expert, Kelly Wonderlin, to create a list of must-have road trip survival gadgets, to help with your travels.

1.  Vinli Hotspot

This gadget turns your car into a Wi-Fi hotspot. The device costs around $200 and Vinli is on a pay-as-you-go plan. Also your minutes never expire. A great way to keep your little monsters entertained.

2.  Jackery External Battery Charger

All you have to do is plug the Jackery in to your computer, or an outlet to charge it, and then throw the Jackery in your pocket, or your purse, and you're good to go. Always stay charged and ready to go with this cool little gadget.

3.  Swaive Thermometer

This gadget is the world's most intelligent thermometer, with an app that comes along with it. You can see if a fever is broken, or if there is something unusual, with the help of a family member. You can store readings from your baby to your husband. You can also send those readings to your doctor or other family members if you would like.

4.  Avea Smart Light Bulb

Kids are creatures of habit, and that's good. But when you're on a trip, and they're away from their routine, it is hard to get kids to bed. The solution is Avea, a smart light bulb attached to an app on your phone that creates lightscapes in any room. Use it for a few weeks prior to your trip, and then make any hotel room seem more familiar.
