Don’t rely on smartphone navigation ever again!

Weekend escapes are the spice of life, but do you always head to the same locations when you get away? It is typical that people choose to escape to the same locations every time, it’s comfortable, easy, you are less likely to waste the limited time you have available to get out.

When thinking about the next escape, it is easy to get sucked into the trap of reliable escape locations, however we’re here to encourage you to do yourself a favour. There are many books published on escapes in your local area, and even a quick google search will flick up a handful of reliable results on new places to explore.

When you are searching, you will need a reliable way to navigate, to these destinations this is were a purpose built GPS navigation device – you can make the argument that your smart phone has an inbuilt GPS and with data based maps you can get to where you are going, but there is a serious flaw in this logic – most places worth going, are well out of reception range and your maps will simply glitch out when looking for more resolution.

The point of having a purpose made GPS navigator makes finding your way a piece of cake particularly when there is preloaded maps and turn by turn navigation!

The VMS uses a touch screen for intuitive navigation, and with its incredible battery life gives you up to 4 hours of figuring out, where you are going by the campfire whilst the device is completely unplugged and off grid!
