There is a plethora of incredible travel related content and advice out there. It comes from guidebooks and travel blogs and websites like this one. Articles written by travel writers, bloggers, and locals offer the best insight on what to do, what to see, what to eat, what to shop. They also offer many other little tricks and tips that are helpful to anyone who visits a new place.
As informative as they are, travel articles today are very limited in the sense that they do not offer much else other than basic information. This is because travel articles consist of only text and images.
The only thing better than a captivating travel article is an article that comes with a map pointing to all the attractions mentioned by the author. It gets even better if it comes as an interactive map that you can navigate in real time.
And wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could also use that map to find your way to your favorite destinations offline? In case you end up in a place with high roaming charges or God forbid, you simply have no internet access at all! Well, the GPSmyCity travel app makes all of this possible.
A New Generation of Travel Articles
A new generation of travel articles is here to take a traveler’s experience to the next level. They combine the useful information of traditional travel articles with the power of GPS navigation technology. In turn, travel articles become GPS powered personal tour guides.
These new travel articles come with the GPS coordinates of the attractions mentioned by the author embedded in them. They are then combined with offline digital maps and a GPS navigation engine. Would you like to explore a hidden jewel mentioned in an article? By simply tapping a button in the article, you can get the travel route plotted on an offline map.
