A few years ago we were still reliant on physical maps and boards to guide us from point A to B, but thanks to technology we have access to satellite navigation where our routes get worked out for us, and getting lost is practically a thing of the past. A lot of cars have GPS systems pre-installed, but portable units are available so people still have the flexibility to edit and change as they please. Nowadays GPS systems have bluetooth connectivity and other improvements, making every day navigating easier and easier.
