We’ve hosted a lot of bike tourists this summer, and we’ve been struck by just how many of them now carry a GPS.
Nearly everyone who’s come to see us has either had a stand-alone GPS unit on their handlebars, or used the GPS functionality on a smartphone to help guide the way.
We’re also navigating by GPS these days. With so many free GPS routes and country maps to download, it couldn’t be easier to plan a route. We can also find the nearest supermarket or campground at any time, and this alone saves us time and frustration.
That said, we still love a good map. There’s just something satisfying about sitting at your campsite and staring at a map to see how far you’ve come and where you’re going.
We’d love to know how you’re navigating these days. Have you gone over entirely to GPS or are you still a devoted map user? Take the poll below, or leave a comment to let us know.
