I wish I had a heated steering wheel. I don't. Wearing gloves or mittens is fine. I've tried several brands of battery powered heated gloves and have been disappointed with most. I recent purchased heated glove liners from powerinmotion.ca. These gloves are different in the sense that that are 12 volts so by purchasing an accessory harness the gloves can be plugged into the cigarette lighter. It is a bit awkward driving with the gloves plugged into the harness but the comfort factor far outweighs any inconvenience. The gloves are pricey, but like I said, I've tried other brands and most broke within a year or didn't work very good from the beginning. Even though these are glove liners and designed to be worn inside actual gloves, for driving they work great as is. If you live in cold country and are looking for some way to keep your hands warm, these are the ticket. They have 3 heat settings and when in high your hands literally get hot.
