TripAdvisor Survey Reveals That Mobile Devices Make Great Travel Companions

So for all of you that are hesitant to jump on the smartphone band wagon or use  a GPS navigation app to travel, TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site might change your mind. Smartphone adoption around the world is skyrocketing, and is fundamentally changing the way people get travel advice, said Mike Putnam, director of mobile product for TripAdvisor. “Whether it is finding the perfect museum or restaurant, it is clear that travelers around the world now rely on their smartphones and other mobile devices to plan and have better trips.”

TripAdvisor conducted a survey of more than 1000 U.S. mobile device users and just over half (52%) responded that they used their mobile device for navigation.  While traveling, 62 % of travelers said they use their mobile devices to research restaurants. Of course, if they are equipped with CoPilot Live, they can use the same app to do both!

With these statistics, TripAdvisor is proving what we at CoPilot Live have always believed—GPS navigation on a mobile device is an extremely useful tool for travelers.   With Memorial Day Weekend around the corner, CoPilot Live can help make a planned getaway even more enjoyable. With millions of Points of Interest including restaurants, parks to grill, and a variety of attractions, CoPilot Live can help you find and navigate to your ideal destination this weekend. Whether it’s a short drive to the beach or a long vacation getaway, GPS navigation on a mobile device is proving to be a very popular traveling companion for everyone!

We hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
