Traveling with the HTC Inspire
First of all, it helps to have a map on your side when you don’t know where you are going. This is an elementary rule of traveling, and in modern days, the physical maps of old have largely been replaced by things such as Global Positioning Systems, which are portable units that can help you figure out where you are and where to go to get to your destination. GPS devices are good but they can be pretty expensive and they are also always being updated. Wouldn’t it be easier instead to have a feature like that built into your smart phone?
That’s exactly what you get through apps that turn your HTC Inspire into a GPS while you travel. Through apps similar to or including Google Maps Navigation, Locate, and Find Me!, it is easy to plug in your current position and your destination and have your smart phone tell you where to go next. A GPS mobile device takes the hassles of travel and allow you to focus on the road ahead. Of course, you will still have to pay attention to where you are going, as the smart phone will not do that for you, but it can be a great relief to know you are heading in the right direction, which is something the HTC Inspire can do for you.
Similarly, when you are traveling, it is always helpful to know where the nearest gas station is, particularly if you are on the verge of running out of gas. While there are usually signs along the highway that will convey such information, if you can do it yourself through an app on your smart phone, why wouldn’t you? There a program for smart phones called Gas Buddy that allows you to do so. All you need to do is plug in your current location and you will receive a list of nearby gas stations and their prices.
Having a smart phone when you travel can be the easiest and best thing you can have with you. That said, you can also look into a number of HTC Inspire accessories to protect your phone when you travel.
For example, it is always good to have a HTC Inspire case on your side, as this can keep your phone from turning into a smart phone sized paper weight if you are unfortunate enough to drop it while you are in a hurry. Similarly, although a HTC Inspire screen protector will not confer the same level of protection to the phone’s body as a case would, a screen guard will keep your screen safe from scratches and other unwanted stuff like dirt or dust.
