GPS tracking: Keeping spring break safe
Road trips during spring break (or any time) are a fun way to get away, but nothing can diminish that excitement faster than complications. There is more than one way your road trip could be ruined, but in all of the scenarios presented here, GPS tracking could have helped to avoid these blunders. Let’s take a closer look at these road trip complications.
Road Trip Scenario #1: A couple wants to go on a skiing adventure for their spring break, but they get lost in the mountains, then they get stranded and their cell phones don’t have reception. What’s the couple to do? The only thing they can do is wait, hopefully, for a kind passerby, right? Wrong! GPS tracking would be perfect in this road trip complication as it would provide a real-time, live street map to prevent the couple from getting lost in the first place.
Road Trip Scenario #2: This driver is going through several states to get his group of friends to their spring break destination. Along the way, a tornado forms and the road trip is severely delayed on account of taking shelter and waiting for the storm to pass. Once again, GPS tracking would have prevented this road trip complication due to the Weather Overlay feature. It would have provided the driver with information about current and upcoming weather patterns, therefore; providing the opportunity for the driver to choose a safer route.
Road Trip Scenario #3: A woman wants to take a little trip for spring break and remembers the oil change, but forgets about anything else and it’s been about 4,000 miles since any tire maintenance was completed. After driving hundreds of miles away, the front, right tire blows. It turns out that the tire had uneven tread due to being imbalanced. GPS tracking maintenance reminders would saved this driver from ever leaving home without notice of the proper maintenance required. The GPS tracking system could have alerted the driver that tire rotations and balancing was needed.
Truthfully, GPS tracking is amazing technology that allow many different types of people to benefit from their usage. Don’t get stuck out there during your next road trip without it!
