GPSmyCity: What is a GPS Guided Travel Article?
“I can't believe we've been looking for this restaurant for the last 30 minutes. All we've done is go in circles.”
–Cindy D. Traveler

I'd like to relate a true story to you. I don't have any sense of direction – zip, zero, nada. Everyone who knows me knows this, and so when they give me directions they are sure to include not to be missed landmarks. Seriously. But when you give me a map, I am totally clueless. When Jim and I were first married – about 28 years ago, we moved to a new state – Louisiana.
I had a job interview in Metairie, Louisiana and we lived in Gretna. Should have been an easy drive, taking about an hour. But somehow, I managed to get lost. Really lost. As in I ended up in a whole other state, lost. After driving for a good hour and half and not seeing anything that looked remotely like the map, I saw a sign. That sign read “Welcome to Mississippi.”
So I believe that GPSmyCity is a game changer – and a necessity for those of us who are directionally challenged.
With over 600 worldwide cities covered so far, GPSmyCity is well on it's way to coming to a city near you. Not being reliant on an internet connection means that you can read through the articles as many times as you wish. This brings to mind the reasons you wanted to visit that neat little tucked away bistro on the corner of Montmartre in Paris, famous for its wine. No more having to stop and look up directions, since the map is embedded in the article!
You will be able to upload any article from GPSmyCity for free wifi free! You can read the article on a plane, at the beach, on a boat headed to the destination… the possibilities are endless. If you decide you want the article to be GPS driven, then you just pay a small fee to upgrade the article. Easy peasy, and affordable at $1.99. You'll have your own personal tour guide in your pocket!
To introduce you to how great this app is, I'm offering a free upgrade of my most popular travel article in the GPSmyCity directory, beginning tomorrow (3/7/17) and ending next week (3/14/17).
