In-Dash navigation systems are available in most new cars these days, but the things they can do when you connect your phone via Bluetooth are limited. There’s also that whole “new car” thing, so if you have anything older than a few years, you’re pretty much sol when it comes to connecting your phone. If you have an iPhone, you’re going to want Apple’s CarPlay for your music, phone calls, message, Maps and everything else Siri can do that you’re not supposed to be doing while you’re driving. If you’re not planning on buying a new car this year, or you haven’t already, you can’t have Apple CarPlay. Unless you happen to have a Pioneer NEX Receiver in your car or you’re willing to have one installed. With nothing more than a simple firmware update and a lightning cable, Pioneer can give you all the Apple CarPlay goodies without having to get a brand new whip.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
