Today, you depend on you vehicle for so much more than simply getting from point A to point B. Especially on road trips, you need your vehicle to be a mobile information hub that connects you to the world around you. When planning your next big road trip, remember the following road trip tech tips for staying connected no matter where you are.
Get unlimited data.
For day-to-day usage, unlimited data plans are often unnecessary, since it is very likely that you will have access to Wi-Fi at various times throughout your day. Once on a road trip, though, Wi-Fi access is much less common. Having unlimited data will allow you to not worry about going over your data limit and will come in handy when combating boredom or navigating a new route.
Navigation apps are incredibly useful when traveling, unless you’re out of network range. However, downloading maps on Google maps before you even set off is an easy workaround to this problem. When you search for a specific area, simply click on “more” and then download the desired map.
Use a multi-port charger.
Especially if you’re traveling with several friends or with the whole family, it’s important to bring along a multi-port charger. This will enable everyone to charge their cellphones or devices at once.
