MotionX User Profile: Photographer Jeffrey George Captures the Colors of Fall with MotionX-GPS Drive
Photographer Jeffrey George recently completed a five week 10,332 mile journey across the U.S. to photograph the fall color in various national and state parks. MotionX-GPS Drive was his co-pilot and, in George’s words, “was an incredible asset when alone and driving a big vehicle in which it’s difficult to make u-turns.”
“I traveled without a single reservation for the entire trip, and using MotionX-GPS Drive I found hotels, KOA campgrounds, laundromats, private campgrounds, and of course national and state parks,” George said.
“I always travel with an assortment of maps, however on this trip I didn’t use them, as none were as effective as MotionX-GPS Drive. Travel can be pretty confusing to someone from out of town. With MotionX it didn’t matter as I had voice assistance along with a visual of when to exit. MotionX also allowed me to drive directly to the highway without any of the usual navigating stress of the city.”
The automatic re-routing feature while using Live Voice Guidance proved to be particularly useful while sightseeing. George stated, “I drove through Washington D.C. and allowed MotionX-GPS Drive to continuously reroute to my next destination. Even with my large loop around the Washington Monument and other memorials, MotionX continually plotted a new course for the most effective route to my destination.”
Finally, the performance-based map caching in MotionX-GPS Drive turned out to be a handy feature. “One other thing I really appreciated,” George explained, “even when I had no cell reception in remote locations, if I had run a simulation of my course earlier MotionX was always able to route me where I needed to go.”
