Hi-Tech Driving

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NAVTEQ. All opinions are 100% mine.

NAVTEQ Update A few years ago, we had an adult driver arrive at our campsite almost an hour after everyone else. He had an onboard navigation system which his family had nicknamed 'Loulou'.

He would just enter their destination and then trustingly follow the directions and instructions it gave him...
"Turn right at the next intersection."
"Turn left."

He loved this system because it saved him lots of effort remembering directions. Unfortunately, on this outing to a remote area, the system knew of a road that used to connect to another road, but now actually led to a deadend. After the system insisted he use that same road twice, he finally gave up and got help at a local gas station - the old-fashion way.

If he had only upgraded his system's map information, he'd probably have been the first at the campsite and in a calm, worry-free mood.

Most in-car navigation systems are driven by technology from NAVTEQ and the updates are easy to get. By visiting NAVTEQ's map update page, you can find the exact update for your vehicle with the latest road and travel information.

How many people would think of this for a Christmas gift?
You can give it to your wife as a gift that keeps the family safe, makes her driving easier, and doesn't need to be returned for the right size.
You know Dad would be happy to have an up-to-date database of gas stations and new roadways so he never needs to ask directions along the way.
I'd love it if all our Scouters had such a system to make our outings a bit more safe and easy.

This is another good use of electronic technology that doesn't reduce the pleasure of the outdoors. I found out the latest revision of the NAVTEQ data includes:

Hey, there's no reason you can't get an update for yourself - just say "Merry Christmas to Me"!
