How do you find your way around when you’re visiting a new city? Do you pick up a souvenir map in the hotel lobby and hope it will show you where to go? Perhaps you will rely on the internet to search for tourist attractions. But how do you know where you want to go? And how much data will you use up that way? What if there was a way you could have access to the itineraries or suggested walking routes of seasoned travellers at your fingertips?
There is a way! And you can have access to an unlimited resource.
GPSmyCity’s new subscription service
It is now possible, with GPSmyCity, to purchase an annual subscription for all of their travel articles and walking routes for over 1000 cities worldwide. This is a new business model for GPSmyCity, and it makes a lot of sense to me. You used to have to purchase each walking route individually at a few dollars each, and you can still do it that way if you prefer. But now, you can find your way easily with access to everything (unlimited) for one year for only $18.99. If you want access to only the travel articles, the cost is even lower: $12.99 per year.
What exactly are you purchasing? If you’re not familiar with GPSmyCity, there are literally thousands of captivating travel articles equipped with navigation technology that will turn your mobile device into your personal tour guide. It uses your GPS technology, so you don’t need to use up your mobile data at all. In fact, you don’t even need a phone plan for a foreign country in order to use GPSmyCity on your phone! GPSmyCity travel articles will guide you through the areas of your interest so easily, you won’t have to worry about how to find your way to each site or point of interest.
Arrive in Paris, France, for example, and open your GPSmyCity app. You will find a chocolate walking tour, a Paris museums walking route, and a tour of the Luxembourg Gardens (and at least 25 more exceptional options for exploring Paris).
When we were in Paris, we used this walking route for Montmartre and this one for the Covered Passageways. Both had interesting facts and background information and were super easy to use. Plus, they saved us time. Who can’t use more time when you’re exploring a new city? GPSmyCity will help you find your way through Paris, too! (or Rome, or New York City!)
How GPSmyCity helps you find your way
All you have to do is download the GPSmyCity app (found on iTunes and GoodlePlay) to your mobile device free. Then choose a city you want to explore and find the list of available walking routes and travel articles. Which ones most appeal to you? Download those free if you just want to be able to read them. Pay for the GPS-embedded article if you want it to guide you through the city. Better yet, sign up for an annual subscription. For about the price of a single travel guidebook, you’ll have access to EVERYTHING for an entire year.
You don’t have to just use GPSmyCity for your foreign travels. Use it to explore your own city better, too. You’ll find information about restaurants, new art galleries, and so much more. Think you already know everything there is to know about your hometown? Check what GPSmyCity has to offer — you might be surprised!
