Navigating with your Phone

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

Killing two birds with one stone by doubling up your mobile phone and using it as a GPS is a solution that many are turning to these days. This helps to save some dollars without having to purchase a separate GPS for the car, but it might also mean having your phone battery drain out quicker than if you do not use it as a GPS.


I took two phones for a drive to see how well they work out as driving companions. Should you want to use your phone as a GPS, I would suggest getting a car dock to mount the phone akin to a conventional GPS, as it is against the law to use your phone while driving, be it for a phone call, SMS or getting directions.
