Don’t you think that GPS navigation apps have really reduced the unnecessary usage of petrol or diesel? Earlier people used to roam here and there searching for their destination.
Asking people, many would answer correct and many would even just gives you any direction that comes in their mind and you end up going to a wrong destination.
So what has made people go anywhere without asking anyone and avoiding detour. This magical thing is GPS navigation apps. They tell you turn by turn direction, all cycle, walk and car route, estimated time, traffic updates.
