It’s that time of year again in the US, the Holiday Season that includes Thanksgiving and Christmas. As the song says, “it’s the most wonderful time of the year,” but it can also be a stressful time. Selecting Christmas gifts for everyone on my list is stressful for me. I buy gifts for a lot of family members of differing ages and interests, and I sometimes don’t know what they’d like, or their sizes, or favorite colors. I want to give them something they’ll enjoy using for a long time, but I don’t always know what that is. Read on for a great gift idea from NAVTEQ that can keep you safe and get you where you’re going – for yourself or others.
If you’re like me, getting ready for Christmas involves a lot of driving around. Sometimes the perfect gift requires driving to unfamiliar parts of Greensboro or nearby cities. And Rachel gets invitations for parties and activities all over the county. Being lost in heavy traffic in an unfamiliar place can suck the Christmas spirit right out of me. Having a car with in-dash navigation can help you find your way around, but haven’t you sometimes found yourself somewhere where the actual roads don’t match what the map is showing you?
There is one thing that could solve both the problem of getting lost while shopping and the problem of finding just the right gifts. A map update from NAVTEQ is the perfect gift for yourself and for your loved ones. And you don’t have to worry if this gift will “fit,” because most cars with in-dash navigation systems use NAVTEQ maps.
Simply go to the NAVTEQ store, select the vehicle make/model of your car or the car of a loved one, and buy a map update. Updating the vehicle’s in-dash navigation system ensures that you’ll have the most up-to-date maps showing road changes from construction and updated points of interest, like restaurants, shopping centers, and gas stations. It’s the perfect gift for my daughter, who’ll be taking drivers ed in 2011. (Therefore, it’s the perfect gift for me, because I won’t worry that Rachel will get lost while she’s out.) Or for my niece who’s away at college this year, and my sister who’s a nurse and sometimes has to drive patients for special treatments, or my husband who drives my daughter to various taekwondo tournaments… I’m sure you can think of several friends and family members who would love to receive the gift of getting there – safely and on time! A NAVTEQ map system update is truly a one-size-fits-all gift for everyone you know with an in-dash navigation system in their cars.
