Hoh boy, is this good news! It’s that time of the year, fellow travelers and map mavens, and it’s right before the summer traveling season starts. The month of May is NAVTEQ’s Map Update Month! Did you know this?! I had no idea that GPS maps had to be updated… but when you think about it, it’s like… well, YEAH.
I should get one of these devices for my car. We do a lot of traveling, and I’m kinda known for getting.. well… LOST. It’s happened a few times. It’s not so bad when you’re not too far from home, but when you’re hours away, it’s a little scary. A GPS device would be very helpful. And an updated GPS device would be even MORE helpful. I know that we all thought the GPS device was for geocaching for amazing hidden treasures like key fobs and automatic pencils (heehee), but I read that GPS navigation devices can save over $200 a year– less fuel and less time spent driving around in circles, like yours truly. Moreover, updating your GPS can help reduce CO2 emissions by 20%, and of course you’ll drive with a little more assurance, knowing that you’re actually driving toward your destination, instead of, uh, around in circles, like….. you know…
So if you have a GPS device whether in the vehicle or the handheld device– be sure to update your GPS maps this month. Go www.mapupdatemonth.com to check on updates for your particular GPS service or device. You can also see more information about the NAVTEQ Navigation Benefits Study, learn how to manage your GPS system more efficiently, and learn a few more things about your roadside options. See the website for more details. Don’t drive around in circles on old maps!
