Make Life Easier!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NAVTEQ. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s almost the start of most mom’s taxi season! Kids are home for summer and you’re running them around from one activity to the next. Even for me, I feel like I am in my car more than I am out of it.  With shopping, errands, swim lessons and music class with Jack this summer, it's drive, drive drive!  In order to save money and ensure a safe car, I will be getting an oil change, fililng my car weekly, and making sure my in-car navigation system (or handheld) GPS unit is up to date.  .

With my map update I will be able to find a route around the crazy Chicago traffic so that I don't have to sit for hours, and I'll be sure to be on time!  There are 100,000 points of interest updated, and I will be able to find the nearest gas station, ATM or Starbucks along my way!  Those of you that hvae older children will be able to find the soccer field for practice, or the quicked route to your mom meet-up.  Spending less time in the car is something I am always looking to do, especially in summer.  I am sure I could save at least an hour or more a week by updating my system and finding the quickest routes on these busy Chicago streets!

NAVTEQ is the company whose technology and maps drive most of the in-car navigation systems and the leading brands of GPS-enabled devices in the U.S., so chances are yours is one of them.

Updating is easy, just go to this website ( and follow the drop-down menus which correspond to the built-in system or portable device. Installing updated navigation maps takes just minutes, but can save hours, fuel and the frustration of getting lost or being late. So take a look at and update your system.  You will be so happy you did!  Enjoy Summer!
