There is a plethora of incredible travel related content and advice out there from travel blogs and websites like this one to travel guide books and magazines. Articles written by travel writers, bloggers and locals offer the best insight on what to do, what to see, what to eat, what to shop, and many other little tricks, tidbits and tips that are helpful to anyone who visits a new place.
As informative as they are, travel articles today are very limited in the sense that they do not offer much else other than basic information. This is because travel articles consist of only text and images.
A New Generation of Travel Articles
A new generation of travel articles is here to take a traveler’s experience to the next level. They combine the useful information of traditional travel articles with the power of GPS navigation technology, and turn travel articles into GPS powered personal tour guides.
The new generation of travel articles come with the GPS coordinates of the attractions mentioned by the author embedded in them. They are then combined with offline digital maps and a GPS navigation engine. Would you like to explore a hidden jewel mentioned in an article? By simply tapping a button in the article, you get the travel route plotted on an offline map.

What Is A GPS Powered Travel Encyclopedia?
GPSmyCity, the company behind the GPS enabled travel articles, has been working with over 1,500 travel writers, bloggers, and locals to harness their collective knowledge of various travel destinations and present it to travelers through an easy to carry iOS app. The app “GPSmyCity: Walks and Articles with Offline Maps”, contains 6,000 city travel guides covering more than 750 cities around the world. In fact, the GPSmyCity app is the world’s 1st GPS powered travel encyclopedia that you can bring along with you on your next trip. The GPSmyCity app works offline, so you can read travel articles about your next destination at the airport or during a train ride, and call upon the built-in GPS guiding service when you need it.
GPSmyCity has just launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise money, so that it can double the destination coverage from 750 to 1,500 cities and make the GPSmyCity app also available on the Android platform. By pledging only $60 to the crowdfunding campaign, you can get full access to all the currently available as well as future articles and self-guided walks.
