Travel Planning

Summer Vacation Road Trip

It’s that time of year. Summer vacation road trips are an American tradition for many. Gone are the days, however, when we planned and navigated across the country with a paper map. Advanced technology in our cars, smartphones, apps, and GPS bring more information and accuracy to our travel plans.

This month, the Mountain View Computer Users Group meeting is about leveraging today’s technology when planning and taking that vacation road trip. No matter when your trip takes place, you’ll learn about using map apps like Apple Maps and Google Maps, and other resource apps like TripIt, Yelp, and Trip Advisor. We will also help you answer questions like, “Is AAA still necessary?” And “Is dedicated GPS hardware like TomTom worth the extra price?”

Please join us at the Cochise College Downtown Center, 2600 E. Wilcox Drive in Sierra Vista, room G106, for travel planning help, tips, favorites, tech news, and Q&A. Coffee, donuts, pastries, and bagels are free, but we appreciate your donations to help offset MVCUG expenses.

All meetings are recorded and available for members online. If you are a paid member you will receive an email with the video link two to three weeks after the meeting.
