To be fair, very few have mastered Manila's notorious roads, and with the confusing road rules, it's easy to get disoriented, or worse, lost. While a GPS may be something a man stereotypically buys, there is merit in acquiring one for yourself - no need to ask that roadside stranger, call your boyfriend, or get frustrated with figuring out a map, a GPS device helps you find your bearings in the easiest way possible.
Abandon your landmark dependency with some assistants to help you find your way.
|Ultra-slim Garmin Nuvi 360|
Garmin first made a name in the Philippines by way of the Forerunner, a line of GPS-enabled multi-sport watches that helped runners and triathletes track their time, distance, pace, and heart rate. But with the launch of Garmin Nüvi, a series of powerful street navigators, the company takes its expertise to the streets, and its technology, to drivers and independent travelers. With innovative GPS technology, getting lost may now be a thing of the past which gives us women a leg up when we go behind the wheel.
Although women have often been unfairly tagged as directionally challenged, studies have shown that not only are we safer drivers, we're also less aggressive and more responsible travelers. In that sense, Garmin Nüvi enhances those natural skills.
Pre-loaded with Philippine roadmaps, Nüvi gives directions through an audible voice and a street map on the screen. By plugging in your endpoint - be it an obscure restaurant, nearby gas station, or a home you're visiting for the first time - it tells you with authority where to head out, turn, or make an exit. Apart from the obvious, it also saves you valuable time, fuel, and educates you on the maze that is Manila roads.
It doesn't stop with your steering wheel; as with their first venture, Garmin upped its offering for those adventurous, outdoorsy types who enjoy trekking in the wild with Rino - a handheld radio that keeps you in contact with other members of your group. Should you get lost, don't fret: You need only send your exact location to other Rino users, so they can view it on their device and find their way to you.
Explore the world with less fear and trepidation, assert your independence, and go on that trip you've always wanted to take, alone or with your girlfriends. With handy navigation tools, finding your way is a cinch, whatever route you take.
