The wonders of technology...
I am still sometimes amazed by aspects of technology.
There's this lovely little app on pretty much every smart phone called Google Maps. :0) When I go places usually look up my route on a computer and have a fair idea how to get where I need to go. I like having the app, because if I get lost, I can pull over and figure out how to get unlost.
Now, I've never used the app to its fullest potential--that is, using it to actually direct me real time to my destination.
In Nashville, we used it to get to the conference hotel from the hotel where we stayed, but DH was driving and had used it before.
I used it to get to the lake house and from the lake house to the Brown-Eyed Girl's apartment and back and, holy cow, that was pretty wicked cool.
And a lot of you might already use that feature, but I rarely drive anywhere I've never been and I'm usually with DH and he drives or navigates if I am. This time, I was with my writer girl friends and none of us knew where we going, so it was time I used it for myself.
Now, I feel a little more confident about going out of town to events or just when traveling and visiting places like, say, Seattle where my kid is home-ported and we rent a car to get around.
How about you?? Do you use the maps feature on your phone to navigate.
