Sorry, but the gadgets are cliche and plot crutches. They becomes more incredibly ludicrous as the franchise aged.
Well not necessarily, Goldeneye doesn't feature them too heavily, but I agree DAD probably did go a tad too far. Having said that the way Bond used his mobile phone in CR was pretty much a plot crutch at every turn. The fact that he located Demitrious from a single text message was utterly ridiculous, similarly how exactly did he locate Mr White from just a mobile number? Do these international terrorists not just use single use disposable phones?

All too easy. And the fact that Dimetrious sent his text conveniently on the first CCTV tape Bond looked at...'bout as believable as an invisible car (which is actually theoretically possible)
True, but at least he didn't have a wristwatch with an electromagnet that could attract objects from 200' away.
