Austin’s Tips For Using Maps & Technology

1.) Planning is So Easy
2.) Share your itinerary with your fellow travelers.
3.) Looking at The Map Online allows you to save the map offline
4.) Follow the directions the phone gives you, but use common sense
5.) Use the “explore around you” feature
6.) After your trip, your phones map history is a record of your adventure
7.) Talk to your phone.  It talks to you.

Get comfortable with being lost for a few minutes.  It won’t hurt you, unless you have kids.
