Essentials Your PDA, GPS, and Translation Software
When vacationing in unfamiliar places, there's various consumer electronics and technologies that can help you enjoy the sites or stay focused on the business at hand. A PDA, GPS, and translation software are indispensable additions to your travel gear.
It's easy to add GPS antenna to your handheld. Equipped appropriate mapping software, your handheld becomes a powerful navigation instrument, eliminating the need to carry any additional hardware. GPS units are small, lightweight, and inexpensive add-ons available for every major brand of PDA, palmtop, and pocket PC (Palm, Visor, Jornada, iPaq, Cassiopeia, Clie, etc.).
A GPS is extremely useful when combined with digital street maps. GPS-equipped PDAs or laptops can generate instant, on-the-fly, turn-by-turn, moving-map directions as you navigate in unfamiliar territory. It is like having a co pilot navigator in the seat beside you with the accuracy of a local taxi driver. Missed turns can be a thing of the past. And because they are so unobtrusive and easy to use, they are less distracting (and thus safer) than using standard paper maps or printed turn-by-turn driving directions.
Avoid being scammed by unethical taxi drivers. With a GPS you know if a "short cut" really is a short cut and that you're not being taken on a longer route just to rack up a higher fare.
Your visit will be more fun with a GPS since it allows you to enjoy your experience without worrying so much about how to get around.
With your receiver and mapping software you can avoid delays due to heavy traffic, construction work, or road accidents so that you will arrive on time and ready to do business. Your business is important so ensure that you arrive unflustered, unscathed and on time.
Some GPS units can give updates on your estimated time of arrival so you never have to wonder if you will I still make it on time to your destination when something unforeseen happens. Your GPS mapping software can show you the impact something will have on your schedule and so you can phone ahead to advise the other meeting participants of your new ETA. Frustrating uncertainties are avoided and the others do something more productive in the meantime than to wait and wonder when or if you will show up.
