GPS devices and iPhones with map apps have definitely allowed many to find their way when they were lost. But what could you do if you don't have those devices? How can you navigate, easily and cheaply, without worrying too much about where you are and how to get there? Read on to find out more.Microsoft Street & Trips comes to mind. The newest version of this software comes with a GPS to allow you to navigate even easier.
It all depends on how well you can navigate by yourself. Some people have real problems, while others just need a few basics and they are ready to go. Naturally, I've gotten lost using this manner from time to time, but usually, I always found my way.
Sometimes, your GPS can even fail to have the right maps. For this reason, Google Maps in an easy fallback. You can also take the time to ask people at gas stations and truck stops where to go. I've been to some regions that weren't on any map, at the time, and I needed local knowledge to find out where I had to go. People tend to be very helpful. It's another matter if you're in a foreign country.
Ultimately, if you have a smart phone, then Google Maps is a nice thing to have since it can show your present location and how to get where you need to go. If that doesn't work, then you can always print out a partial map on your laptop.
