The advancement of technology made our lifestyle easier than usual. This advancement include: mobile phone innovation (from a huge and heavy device to a light weight hand held mobile phone), energy efficient household items (electric stoves, refrigerators, etc.), telecommunication services (from morse code to high speed internet and ultrafast fiber optics for faster data transmission ), transportation (from a rolling stock to magnetic levitation or bullet train), and now, navigation system (advanced mapping and Global Positioning System).
The emergence of the Global Positioning System (GPS) on handheld and different devices enables us to familiarize maps and easily access to a certain location but internet connection is required. There are a lot of channels now for modern navigation system.
As we grow up, familiarizing the road is a must. Our parents must not guide us to go somewhere and drive us home always. There must be a point where we can stand in our own feet driving and familiarizing the freeway. Though the complex network of highways in the Philippines is somewhat confusing, there are a lot of routes available to go to a certain location that you want to go through.
Driving is a good practice in familiarizing the road and possible route for a certain location. Using some maps on handheld devices comes handy but what if the battery of the device was drained, or the signal for data connection is weak? Or what if, you left your mobile phone? Yes, asking people about directions is a good idea. But what if, you are in a middle of an unknown highway without any houses on the way? Still, there’s a chance of losing the right track.
Thanks to the rental cars who have this pre-installed navigation system directly connected to the GPS. The layout of the city or the place was downloaded to the car’s database so that it can track the car’s exact location including the nearby places and landmarks. It can help new drivers to avoid getting lost during road trips for it has the enhanced mapping technology. The fact that people of this generation loves traveling, knowledge in navigation is an advantage.
While renting this type of car, you can actually memorize the routes available and the possible ways to go to a certain place. Also, you can explore places you never had gone before without any trouble navigating the roads. It’s not just like a virtual map but a combination of a map, a teacher, and locator. This is very ideal for a group of friends who love adventure and exploring different regions for their happiness. Most especially, the youth of this generation is very curious and at the same time, adventurous. Also ideal for families whose passion is traveling, to discover the beautiful hidden paradise. It was the best bonding a family can spend. Traveling in a new place for them to relax, enjoy and escape the stress, the metro is bombarding them every now and then.
Traveling to a place is easier today rather than before. Thanks to the new era of advanced technology and thank you for the inventors and innovators of this new technology. For this matter, traveling is as easy as 1 2 3 and A B C.
There are certain things that the past generation cannot offer today. The advancements in transportation and navigation gave us comfortable yet affordable travel. It can also help travelers to be safe by traveling on a location where it is worry-free. Of course safety is first to assure for our loved ones which includes family and friends.
