For many families, summertime means road trip time. If you are planning a road trip soon, you want to make sure you make it to your destination quickly. The best way to do that is by using GPS navigation. If your car is not equipped with a built-in system, you will need to use a smartphone app. There are many different options on the market to choose from, and the following are three of the very best.

Google Maps

This is the go-to navigation app for the many of smartphone users, known for its accurate maps and directions. You can even get turn-by-turn directions as you drive. If you are worried about using data, you can download the maps you need for a given area before you head out to your destination.

Apple Maps

While many iPhone users still use Google Maps, Apple Maps has gotten better over time. Blogger Arthur Grabowski spent a year analyzing different navigation apps  and found that Apple Maps was the most accurate of the bunch.


If you want detailed information about your drive, such as traffic flow, police sightings, and amber alerts, the Waze app is the way to go. Users can report traffic jams, accidents, and other information that they encounter along their way. This information is available to all users and can help avoid tight spots.

If you’re heading out on the road this summer, you’ll want a nice, shiny set of wheels to get you there. Stop into Paulding CDJR for a new vehicle that’ll help you kick off your summer fun the right way.
