I spent some time exploring unfamiliar territory over the weekend and charted out my adventures and directions with Google Maps in advance. Blame it on the Henny the night before, or my inability to chat with my copilot and drive, but I got lost. As we sat at the side of a sketchy road, frustrated and ready for a Garden Burger, I thanked my lucky stars for my iPhone. We were able to triangulate our position with the iPhone's GPS, update our directions, and get back on track, following the moving blue dot on the map until we reached our destination.
More than 75 percent of geeksugar readers claim to use GPS regularly, but about 58 percent admit it has led you astray at one point or another. I recognize using a GPS can be distracting, but I am always glad to have it when my primary plan (Google Map directions and instinct) fail me. Which travel tool do you think is more helpful?
