So you've been on holiday, and you want to come home safely. Or you haven't been on holiday and you want to find a different route to work.
In comes a journey planning tool courtesy of Shell that'll help keep peace in the car: ShellGeostar.co.za.
There are several sections to the tool, but the three most important ones are:
- The route planner
- Where to stay
- Where to eat
Better still is the mapping system. It breaks each section of the route into bite-sized pieces, leaving nothing up to chance. I'm pretty certain that only the MOST geographically challenged people MIGHT get confused. Here's a tip: on a map, the top of the picture is north.
It's as simple as that.
The 'Where to Eat' and 'Where to Stay' sections are almost as useful as the route planner. I know Rosebank quite well, and found several good recommendations. But I also found an Indian restaurant I didn't even know existed.
Drive home safely, and print out your maps, and eliminate end-of-holiday-in-the-car-rage.
