What is a GPS-guided travel article?
Imagine reading a great travel article and thinking to yourself, “I wish I could use this article as a guide while I’m traveling…”
If you have access to the internet, you could always bookmark the article and go to the website again. But more often than not, you’d rather not use up data to access the internet. And you might not even have a cell phone plan for the country you are visiting.
Besides, just reading through the article again will remind you of the places you wanted to visit — that well-reviewed restaurant or that popular beach — but you’d still have to stop and look up the directions to find it.
Guess what? There is a much better way! Use a GPS-guided travel article. This is a travel article that has GPS coordinates embedded in the article and a map of the route the author described in his/her article. And you can find literally thousands of these articles (from over 1000 worldwide cities) at GPSmyCity. Once this app is downloaded to your phone, you will not need any internet to use the article as a guide. It will show you right where you are on the map and guide you to each subsequent location!
And just so you know…you can upload any travel article from GPSmyCity free of charge, so that you can read it at your pleasure without wi-fi. On the plane…on the beach…wherever(!)…at your convenience. If you decide you want it to be a GPS-guided article, all you do is pay a small fee to upgrade (about $2). It’s easy! It’s super-cheap! You also have the option of subscribing annually for only $20 — which gives you access to over 6500 guided city walks.
And it’s just like having a personal tour guide!
As a bonus (and to introduce you to how great this concept is), I am offering free upgrades of two of my newest travel articles in the GPSmyCity directory, beginning today (November 27, 2018) and ending next week (Monday, December 3rd, 2018).
You can access GPS-guided travel articles two different ways:
- click on a link below for the article you are interested in (if you haven’t already downloaded the free GPSmyCity app, you will see a prompt to do so). After downloading the app, you will be directed to the article, where you can choose UPGRADE to get the GPS-guided version.
- From the GPSmyCity app, you can browse by city to see all the available articles.
Remember, you can download any article for free or upgrade for offline GPS-guided use.
These two articles can be downloaded and upgraded free through December 3, 2018 — so don’t wait!
And here are four more brand-new GPS-guided travel articles I’ve just published; you might be the very first to check them out!
