Gadgets, apps for spring break traveling

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Do you want to keep fidgety kids quiet in the car? That will be the challenge this coming week when it's spring break for thousands of Georgia's school kids.

Have no fear, FOX 5's Doug Evans has you covered in this week's Tech Check. Here are his recommendations for a successful trip during spring break.

Ditch the DVDs and go with a tablet for the kids.  It's is a growing travel trend among parents, and lets the kids pacify themselves with a tablet.

It doesn't mean you have to buy them tablets. If mom and dad each have one, install kid friendly apps and movies and pass them out.  You can even find brackets to install on seatbacks for movie watching.

How about some useful travel apps? One useful app for spring break traveling is Gasbuddy, and it could save you money at the gas pump! Another is the Tripit app. It's designed to keep your travel itinerary in order with your flight details, check in details, and much more.

Freeway from Jabra brings Bluetooth technology to any car. It allows hands-free calling and answering. It normally sells for $130, but it's on sale at Verizon for $99.

The GoPro camera is the ultimate vacation companion. Not only does it give you amazing HD video, but the case is waterproof and you can capture video or stills. It comes with built in WiFi, and you can send the video live to a smartphone for someone else to watch.
