I can understand the point of some of them

None of it (except for maybe the Radar Detector for coasting too fast).

This is a rig for a storm chaser or radio club.

My radios are for weather reporting, communication outage drills, and working the National Rally Championship: (the CB directly communicates with the Jeep Club members to tow and spot disabled race vehicles and the radios are for Medical Dispatch and overall command to essentially run the entire race from the command center, with each stage having a Start, Finish, and Medical 2-Way Radio system).

I was golfing the other day and the electric cart had a display for the battery charge, and I found myself hypermiling the golf cart!
