OK so you finally have gotten around to that vacation you've been planning for months. You've saved up some cash and want to go on a grand road trip or trek through out the jungles of the amazon.
The problem is you don't know your way around your own backyard! How on earth will you be able to enjoy yourself if you are fumbling around with your map and compass!
Though GPS will not transform a directionally-challenged individual into a master outdoorsmen, it will certainly help those who use it correctly to get from one location to another without a hitch.
Imagine for instance if you are planning on going to on a vacation around a certain themed area- let's say Mount Rushmore for instance. Not only will you be able to get to Mount Rushmore, but you will see instantly what other attractions are within your traveling range!
Imagine finding other attractions and public spectacles that are already in and around what you had set out for? Or if you want to go travel interstate around Mount Rushmore to see other locations and interests, a GPS device will help you get there quite simply! So it is very possible to travel to the surrounding states and attractions within the same amount of time that you normally would spend at a single attraction.
Many GPS providers come with preloaded destination settings that provides directions to not only attractions, but important pitstops such as gas stations, hotels, motels, and lodges.
This is THE way to travel. I am sure once you try GPS on one of your vacations, you will NEVER leave home without it!
