Re: Smart Citiies
I definitely agree with you though. It’s way more safe tomplan ahead and know what area you’re heading to before you get in the car.

Re: Smart Citiies
Yup, that is like the icing on cake. You have it with you all the time and absolutely no pre-planning required.

Re: Smart Citiies
I know, that is exactly what is happening these days with GPS.

But again it works for many people. So everyone adapted it so quickly. Personally for me i feel so anxious to drive just by following GPS to an unfamiliar place.

Re: Smart Citiies
Yes I understand! It definitely has made people less likely to actually figure out exactly where they’re going. But because of the easiness of it, many people just get in their car, pop in an address and they’re off!

Re: Smart Citiies
@dlr5288:

I do not disagree a bit. I know the entore dynamics have changed because of how GPS or navigation systems in general have become super powerful these days. In the past people atleast use to bother about knowing the place or area that they have to go before stepping into teh car. These days people only look it up after hitting the road. Somehow i can't do that. I am not comfortable if i don't look it up in advance. This is just my personal preference.

Re: Smart Citiies
GPS has become super advanced recently! I think it makes things super easy to get from place to place. Even the map app on the iPhone makes things very easy!

You are not alone. It has become a very common practice lately and it absolutely works perfect. It's just me who feels not so comfortable doing that as i am paranoid to drive to new / unknown places.

Re: Smart Citiies
@ms.akkineni No doubt that the GPS is a most useful device and I've used it consistently to find places I had no clue where they were. I just said a little prayer that it wouldn't screw up when I was driving to someplace unfamiliar.

Ha Ha..that happens all the time with GPS when we are driving to a familiar location and at times that annoys. I must say that GPS is very useful tool and it is driving entire human force, no denial about that. I personally would feel confortable to use that with some pre due diligence at my end.
