New technology is always one of the neat things about buying a new car. Most newer car models these days come with an optional GPS navigation system. Whether you're using it to shave time off your commute or to find a new restaurant on the other side of town, a GPS navigation system can be very useful if you learn how to use it well.
Since most all car manufacturers use different navigation systems, you'll want to read the owner's manual to find out some of the ins and outs of the system.
A lot of GPS systems block input when the car is moving, so you'll want to take care of the preset preferences before you take off for the first time. Take care of customizing things like the language settings, the volume, and the screen brightness. They may seem small, but they make a big difference when you get going. Also, take the time to input your frequently visited locations, like your home and work. These will help you save time in the long run.
As long as you take the time to learn how to use it, GPS navigation can be quite the time-saver.
