Now a days technology has improved so much and made our life easy, that it has significant effect on our perspective and even our perspectives are changing fast according to new technology.
In past some two hundred years before traveling to a long distance was a difficult task. In India there was fear of thugs who were not only doing robbery, but also taking lives of people that time. Later after the discovery of steam engine travel became fast and people started to travel to long distances more frequently. Now people in India not only use public transport, but also use private four wheeler vehicles for traveling. A very useful technology - the ‘Global Positioning System Navigation’ has playing important role in this traveling and people are visiting new places by seeking roads using GPS Navigation.
Now we hear or read about some place and decide to go that new place. We search on internet about that place using maps, search the hotels and other necessary facilities, make a plan, then mostly we do online booking of hotels or tickets or vehicles for going there. While going there using the four wheeler GPS navigation helps us much. If we have some problem about the route, it shows us the exact place of our vehicle on the map on our device which helps us to check whether we are on right route or not. It also shows us different ways to go to that specific place, so if we want to choose different way, then we can choose it. With some more applications it also gives us the additional information, if there are tolls in the way or if there is traffic jam in the way etc. which helps us to take proper and quick decision and we become able to reach that place fast due to additional information.
I took the efficient experience of this technology before few days. Our group of ten people was traveling to a new place in two vehicles – both four wheelers. In one vehicle the group used GPS navigation and found out a short cut to reach that particular place. In another group the driver used his traditional knowledge and selected the longer route which was known to him. Because of that the vehicle taking the longer route reached there late and also it travelled unnecessary fifteen kilometers more.
GPS Navigation helps us to select the way and it is also important in one more aspect. Now there are flyovers built up on many roads which are suitable to travel a very long distance without any obstacle of crossing vehicles from front side. At the start of such flyovers lanes are kept to enter into the city. If you will not choose the proper lane and instead drive on the flyover then sometimes you have to travel many kilometers away because there is no place to take turn and return at that spot. At such times it is waste of fuel, waste of time. Use of GPS Navigation helps us at such spots and we can reach to our destination more efficiently.
