Numerous automotive Technologies have become permanent fixtures in the modern car, each enhancing the driving experience more and more. Much like apps on your smartphone, these tech bits function as utilities that make the main product function better and the overall experience richer. To with, GPS Navigation systems might be the best possible example of technology whose main purpose is to enrich the driving experience.
There may be something romantic about using impossible-to-fold paper maps to plan a route or track your progress on a road trip, but it can be stressful, confusing and at times dangerous to consult a giant poster every time you need to make a turn. At minimum, a navigation system removes the necessity to stop and ask for directions, to pull off to the side of the road, to make a U-turn. Navigation keeps a driver driving, with gentle nudges to bear left or keep on, celebrating milestones and suggesting the most efficient route, the quickest course to a fuel station, the speed limits and traffic information and construction delays ahead — all to keep a driver driving. The integration of technology in today’s automobile is only quickening, and there has never been a better time to drive.
