With the holidays fast approaching, it’s important to start to plan your trip. If you’re thinking of travelling domestically, a portable GPS device can be your best friend on the road in an unfamiliar town.
With so many portable GPS devices on the market often the major difference is the maker of the maps inside. Whereis® maps cover more than 99 per cent of the places people live in Australia.
Before travelling you can program your final destination as well as log and pre-plan stop-overs along the way. Your portable navigation device will also help you find the landmark, such as local tourist information centre, hotel, service station or bank you may need along the way.
Selected devices also allow you to search business listings to find the business or place, such as a hotel in that coastal town that you’d like to travel to, and use their device to call and book before arrival.
So make sure you choose a device with Whereis® maps, who knows where it will take you this summer?
Footnote: Garmin, TomTom and Uniden all feature Whereis® maps. Make sure you keep an eye out for their devices.
