Discovery Maps allow locals and visitors to find opportunities and attractions around them. they may never have known with a focus on destinations and businesses, not just how to get there like our smartphones do,” Chartrand said. “With GPS, you need to know the destination in advance, with a discovery map you can choose from many suggestions that you might never have tried otherwise. GPS is for navigation; Discovery Maps are made for – well – discovering destinations.”
