Technology affects every aspect of life, and that definitely includes travel. Venturing away from familiar areas can be intimidating, but electronic mapping applications are taking some of the mystery out of the process. Using Google Maps or Apple Maps, routes can be monitoring and shifted as needed. You can plan ahead how and where you’ll go while traveling to your destination, which is handy if you want to avoid or visit certain areas. Both applications offer a street level view that can be especially helpful, when you get where you’re going and have to actually find the final destination with your own eyes.
- Check your driving options with Google Maps and Apple Maps to optimize your driving experience.
- By adding in your extra stops you can calculate the quickest route in advance.
- Turn traffic on in real time to plan alternative routes if needed.
“Based on historical traffic data, the app can also predict how long a route will take you at any time of day, so you can alter your departure time if necessary.”
