The days of fumbling with a map while you’re driving are long over. Applications such as Google Maps and Waze have made getting from point A to point B easier, but what happens when you find yourself in a “no coverage” area? From my own recent experience I can tell you, it is no fun driving for 20 miles only to realize you are going the wrong way (and me with no backup map in place.)
