In today’s GPS-connected world, travelers have many choices for navigation devices. Garmin, Tom-Tom, Magellan, and Copilot are just a few of the brand names for the dashboard devices that will guide you down the road. Even our cell phone (Droid) has wonderful GPS navigation capabilities today. But, for planning those trips, nothing beats a computer with mapping software like Microsoft Streets and Trips.
Time and Money Calculator
Streets and Trips, running on our laptop computer, has been our guide for all 7 years of our RV travels. We’re currently on version 2010. Below is a beginning level video to give you an idea of how easy it is to plan a trip and have the software tell you where to go, how long it will take, and how much you’ll spend in gas. Traveling in an RV is a completely different story when it comes to time and money, than traveling in a car. If you know where to change the settings, the software will take this into account.
