I always find it comfortable using Google Map and Navigation app while I am outside, in search of a destination. Thanks to Google Map, now I can type down the location in my smart phone before I step out of the house. The Navigation app gives me a smooth traveling direction while I am on the road.
This helps me to be self sufficient and handy while on road and makes it unnecessary to get local guides from people to reach my destination.
