We all like traveling or have to do it at some point in our lives. We are likely to find ourselves in an area where we may not be very conversant with the directions. This could be such a major barrier as far as enjoying our travels is concerned. There is also the amount of time one wastes getting lost and going around asking for directions even getting misdirected at times.
There is also the fact that not everyone you ask is a resident of that area and its common to find that the person you turn to for help also has no clue about the directions to the place you are looking for. Some may know what you are looking for but not everyone is good at giving directions. There is also the language barrier aspect when one is in a foreign country. There is thus a need for one to use a system they can trust and one that works for them effectively.
