It’s safe to say that smartphones are becoming the center of digital life of most of the people in the US. When you are lost, you simply open Google Maps, and you’re found. When you need to check up on prices, you just open the right app and then you’ve saved some money. Ford’s Sync Destinations app might look a bit retro, but it does allow you to sync your car navigation system with your iPhone. Once you’re in your car, the route will load automatically. That’s pretty cool in my book.
When you’re trying to get back into shape, there’s nothing more motivating than seeing some basic stats of your various workouts. Most of these devices aren’t that expensive and you get a lot for what you pay. Also, there are quite a few solutions that are compatible with smart phones.
GPS devices and iPhones with map apps have definitely allowed many to find their way when they were lost. But what could you do if you don’t have those devices? How can you navigate, easily and cheaply, without worrying too much about where you are and how to get there? Read on to find out more.
I have been trying to go for a bike ride for the last few days, but on Friday, the wife came home and disrupted my routine. On Saturday, it didn’t pan out. Today, I was extremely tired, but drank a few strong milk teas and got ready to go on my ride. The ride felt pretty good and I knew that by the time it was over, that I still had some juice left in my legs. I could have doubled the distance. However, it was already dark and I was weary of having an accident.
Since GPS devices have become really popular in the last few years, I haven’t used one myself in any way shape or form. I tend to use Google Maps extensively to help me map out where I have to go. This works equally well for my home town or when I’m traveling. However, recently I purchased a new GPS to help me with something else than navigation.
I wanted to go out yesterday, but I had to do some work and by the time I was getting ready, it was already supper and I needed to eat something. I was really itching to go out, but decided to go tomorrow. I initially wanted to go for 50-100km, but in retrospect, I think that it’s probably good that I’m starting off slowly. I wouldn’t want to injure myself. That has happened before.
