GPS Navigation: My liberator

We live in a tech-driven world where innovative and amazing technologies keep on evolving to make our lives better and easier.  Most of them become obsolete and bankrupted, when an advance disruptive technology gets released with a bang. And this rapid application development cycle keeps on running, bringing new amenities and benefits to facilitate our daily routine. One such savior that came into our world and changed it completely, is GPS navigation, that is never going to get out of date, hopefully.

One of the biggest reasons that makes a smartphone smart, is GPS. There are various applications compatible with different operating systems from android to iOS, such as Google Maps, Apple Maps, Waze, iGo, etc. which can be installed on corresponding compatible devices. Not only the mobile applications, but there are also many GPS products and devices that have been developed and launched for their use in location tracking. What could be more helpful than having a GPS navigation device in your car itself, that's portable and user-friendly. Having a turn by turn responsive navigation, assisting you at every step you take, is an absolute blessing and thanks to GPS software for letting us live in such a tech-prone world. 

In today’s world, from a geek to a novice, almost everyone is familiar with GPS navigation and how it works. Gone are the days, when you were bound to ask the strangers on the way, “Hello bhaiya, yeh road kahan ko jati hai?” When you used to restrict yourself from travelling to new places because you didn’t have any idea about the routes. Now, there's no need of wasting hours in finding your desired stations, restaurants, hotels or institutions and no one can be lost, even if he/she wants to. 
Along with the assisted directions you can even discover the near by landmarks, traffic loads and road closures.
So, if you are in a time critical situation, better switch on your GPS navigation, because you never know, a traffic jam might be awaiting you!! 

One of the most startling features of my Google Maps application is, it offers different Map views , be it traffic view, satellite view, street view or panoramic and you can easily switch between them depending on your needs.
I personally, have survived in new places, just because of this liberator in my hands that lets me know the answer to the two most important questions, where I'm standing at the moment and how much distant is my destination.
There hasn’t been a single day when I didn’t use my google maps application, not because I travel to new areas everyday but because I’m really poor in remembering the routes. So, for travelers like me, it’s a boon for lifetime.

This blog post is inspired by the blogging marathon hosted on IndiBlogger for the launch of the #Fantastico Zica from Tata Motors. You can apply for a test drive of the hatchback Zica today.
  1. Yes, this one saves the day for me too! I only wish that internet was cheaper :D

  2. With absolutely no geographic sense, the navigator to me is truly a liberator! Lovely post
