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

With summer break in full swing, the beginning of my busiest season of driving is about to begin.  Sometimes the shear amount of time spent in my car (and endless amount of time wasted sitting in traffic) leaves me fantasizing about opening my own cab company—hey why not make a little extra cash while carting my kids and their friends around…right? 

Having a GPS system in my car is convenient, but not having the most up-to-date directions has left me late to events, sitting in traffic for what seems like hours, and lost more times than I care to admit.  It’s weird how I always remember to fill up the tank, check the tire pressure, and check the oil before heading off to an important event, but never even wonder if my GPS maps are up-to-date.   NAVTEQ (the technology and maps that make up most of the GPS systems on the road) has a website ( that makes updating your system fast and super simple!

So in the interest of making my life easier,  I decided to check and see just how easy updating my GPS maps would be…and it is a lot easier than I could have imagined. It’s pretty much as easy as clicking on and filing in some information. I don’t know about you, but if I can update my GPS maps with a few clicks of the mouse then I am all for it!  Just knowing that there is a fast and easy way to make sure I arrive at all of my appointments and special events on time helps put this mom on the road with confidence!
