Why Having a Road Map is Still Beneficial

After you pick up your new vehicle from SouthTowne Motors of Newnan, Georgia, this spring, you’re ready to go on a road trip. However, if you choose to go someplace you’ve never been before, you might need a map or a GPS. Sometimes paper maps are better than the GPS, especially if you don’t want to go directly from point A to point B.

They’re More Affordable

Paper maps are more affordable than GPS units. Even if you buy a plug in GPS, you can expect to put out over $100. If you are on a limited budget, paper maps will get you where you’re going for much less than a GPS unit.

They’re Detailed

When you plug in a destination, the GPS will take you directly to that destination. Instead of showing you the side roads or attractions that are not on the main drag, it bypasses all of that. If you are on a road trip and want to take side trips, maps are more beneficial. And, when you do change your mind as to your destination, paper maps don’t yell at you, telling you to “turn around when possible,” and “recalculating.”

They Record Where You’ve Been

Marking up a paper map as you travel allows you to keep a record of your trip. That comes in handy when you want to revisit an attraction or out-of-the-way restaurant that you fell in love with. Or, if you loved a particular drive during a certain season, you’ll be able to mark that drive and write down the best time to take that drive again.

They Don’t Need Electricity

GPS units sometimes can’t find a satellite. But a paper map never loses its satellite. When you lose a satellite, you won’t be able to get it again unless you move from your spot. With a paper map, you’ll never be lost because of a lost satellite signal.
